Nikita Kucherov has made a very good impression on the Tampa coaching staff in three exhibition games thus far.
He is the only Lightning player to play in all of the team's three preseason contests and has looked good doing it. In Friday's 6-3 win over Dallas, Kucherov played on the top lone alongside Steve Stamkos and Ryan Callahan and skated on the Bolts' top power-play unit, scoring a goal. Tampa coach Jon Cooper wants to get a good look at Kucherov while Jonathan Drouin recovers from injury to see where the 21-year-old fits in. Thus far assistant coach George Gwozdecky has been impressed. "I think he's made another step in his progress from last year to now,’" Gwozdecky said. "Certainly there is a little bit more of an awareness of how he needs to play to be effective, not only offensively, but defensively. He's a very explosive player and one of these guys that finds seams and finds holes. He’s a very crafty player." Keep any eye on Kucherov over the next two weeks. Sep 27 - 11:13 AM
