Bolts' Kucherov Scores 13th Of Season

News: Nikita Kucherov extended his point streak to five games Friday, scoring his 13th goal of the season in a shootout loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov has been a machine lately, cranking out four goals and seven points in his past five games. The 21-year-old has been reliable all season long, delivering 30 points in 34 games. With 76 shots on goal, two game-winning goals, and a plus-18 rating, the second-liner has become an all-around fantasy stud in just his second NHL season. Logging top-six minutes on a Lightning team that sits third in the Eastern Conference, Kucherov should be owned in almost all leagues right now.

Bolts' Kucherov: Not Slowing Down

News: Nikita Kucherov's point streak now stands at four games and six points (three goals, three assists) after he picked up an assist in Tuesday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: The sniper now has 17 assists and 29 points in 33 games this season. We keep waiting for him to slow down, but that hasn't happened yet. Take full advantage.

Bolts' Kucherov Grabs Two Points In Loss

News: Nikita Kucherov factored into both of his team's goals, scoring and adding an assist in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov now has multiple points in two of his last three, and sits at 28 through 32 games. He may not keep up that pace over the course of the entire season, but the 21-year-old should still approach the 60-point mark.

Kucherov Nets Both Bolts' Goals In Win

News: Nikita Kucherov scored both goals in Thursday's 2-1 win over Carolina. He now has 25 points, including 11 goals, in 29 games this season.
Analysis: The first goal went into an open net after the puck took an odd bounce off the end boards straight to Nikita Kucherov. He then scored the winner when his pass went off a Canes' defender and into the net with just 30.3 seconds to play. His performance this season has gone largely undiscussed, but he should be on everyone's radar. He's just scratching the surface.

Bolts' Kucherov: Strong Season Continues

News: Nikita Kucherov's assist Monday against the Rangers gives him eight points, including four goals, in his last 10 games and 21 points in 25 games this season.
Analysis: Will he keep up this pace and deliver close to 70 points by season's end? Probably not, if only because the games get much, much tighter in the second half. Still, his skill is delicious and he's the kind of player who'll settle in around the 50-point mark on the season.

Bolts' Kucherov: Streak Now At Four Games

News: Nikita Kucherov extended his point streak to four games with an assist in Thursday's loss to Toronto. It was his 18th point of the season.
Analysis: He had 18 points in 52 games last season, but it has taken him just 21 to match that mark this year. He's actually on a pace that would net him 27 goals and 70 points. His pace will slow over the second half, but he should be good for solid contributions until Christmas or just beyond.

Bolts' Kucherov: 15 Points In Last 13 Games

News: Nikita Kucherov's strong season continued Tuesday night against the Islanders. He picked up an assist to extend his point streak to three games and three points (one goal, two assists).
Analysis: He now has 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) in 20 games, but more remarkably, 15 of those have come in his last 13 games. And he's been doing it the hard way at even strength -- just two of his 17 points have come with the man advantage. He's delivering the mail for fantasy owners #autoroll.

Bolts' Kucherov Pots Goal In Win

News: Nikita Kucherov potted his seventh goal of the season in Monday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov is now just two points away from the 18 point mark he set last season as he's now just under a point-per-game. He'll easily pass that and then some as he's rolling on the Bolts' second line and has developed into a real fantasy weapon.

Bolts' Kucherov: Another Goal And Assist

News: Nikita Kucherov scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over Washington. He now has nine points, including five goals, in his last five games.
Analysis: He's really clicking with center Tyler Johnson and fellow winger Ondrej Palat, and he should be considered a mandatory roll while he's streaking. He's that good.

Kucherov Nets First NHL Hat Trick In Bolts' Win

News: Nikita Kucherov netted his first career hat trick in Tuesday's 7-3 win over Arizona.
Analysis: This guy has amazing hands. And he's turned up the heat offensively in his last three, potting four goals and adding three assists. Take advantage of this run; it won't last forever. But he's not a one-hit wonder -- this guy might be a 35-goal guy (or better) in a couple seasons.

Bolts' Kucherov Nets First Goal

News: Nikita Kucherov netted his first goal of the season in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov was perhaps the most effective skater for the Bolts in their weekend back-to-back, contributing three assists Friday night before notching the goal Saturday. With all of Brett Connolly, Ryan Callahan and Alex Killorn sidelined with injuries, opportunity knocks for Kucherov to grab a role on the Bolts' second line. It could allow him to continue to supply some useful numbers in the short term.

Bolts' Kucherov Dishes Out The Helpers

News: Nikita Kucherov dished out three assists in Friday's win over Winnipeg.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov logged a season-high 15:43 of ice time in the win, skating on the third line with Cedric Paquette and Vladislav Namestnikov. Kucherov's value is currently limited due to his bottom-six role, but he is a staple on the second power play unit, where he picked up an assist Friday. The 21-year-old sophomore should easily surpass the nine goals and 18 points he recorded in 52 games last season.

Bolts' Kucherov Gets Two Helpers

News: Nikita Kucherov picked up two assists in Monday's 7-1 drubbing of Montreal.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov has remarkable hands and beautiful finish, but it was his playmaking that was showcased against the Habs. He only played 10:21, but sure delivered the goods in the time he was on the ice.

Bolts' Kucherov Nets Sixth Goal Of Preseason

News: Nikita Kucherov scored his NHL-leading sixth goal of the preseason in Saturday's win over Florida.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov finishes the preseason with seven points in six games, to go with a plus-9 rating. With the way he tore up the preseason, it seems Kucherov could be in for a very successful 2014-15 season. Watch out folks, if this 21-year-old rising star secures a spot on a scoring line, the results could be deadly.

Bolts' Kucherov Tickles Twine A Lot This Preseason

News: Nikita Kucherov has seen preseason action alongside Steven Stamkos on the Lightning's top line and the sniper is making the best of it. He scored twice Thursday in a 4-1 win over Florida to give him five goals in the preseason.
Analysis: Bolts coach Jon Cooper isn't revealing his hand when it comes to who'll play on the right side of that top line, but Nikita Kucherov has really impressed. However, we find it a bit hard to think that they'll go with two snipers alongside Ondrej Palat -- that line needs a guy who'll go into the corners, and they don't need Stamkos assuming that role. Watch and wait, but this could be a breakout year for Kucherov, no matter where he lands.
