May 5 - 8:10 AM

Braydon Coburn will return to the Lightning's blue line Friday night against the Flyers.

Coburn has posted just 10 points with 96 hits across 65 games this season, so he's probably best suited for your waiver wire.

Braydon Coburn (lower body) will be a game-time decision on Friday.

Coburn has missed two straight contests because of the ailment. He has 10 points and 45 penalty minutes in 65 contests in 2015-16.
Mar 10 - 2:12 PM

Braydon Coburn is taking part in the Lightning's practice on Thursday.

Mar 7 - 5:03 PM

Braydon Coburn has a lower body injury, and is considered day to day.

Slate Koekkoek was recalled on Sunday. The 30-year-old veteran Coburn has posted 10 points, 45 PIMs, 78 blocks, and 96 hits this season, which unfortunately doesn't make for much of a plug.
Mar 6 - 7:59 PM

Braydon Coburn's new three-year deal comes with a $3.7 million annual cap hit.

That's a $800,000 annual discount from Coburn's current contract, which will expire this summer. Coburn is one of those defensemen that's more valuable to his team than to most fantasy owners because his offensive contributions are few and far between. He has nine points in 60 games this season and isn't likely to do significantly better in that regard going forward.

Braydon Coburn has inked a three-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The financial terms of the deal were not immediately available, but he's in the final season of a four-year, $18 million contract. Coburn has a goal and nine points in 60 contests this season.
Feb 26 - 11:39 AM

Braydon Coburn can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

"I've enjoyed my time here," said Coburn, who understands this could be his last season with the Lightning. "We've got a job to do here and I'm a veteran guy. I know what's important, especially at this time of the year. For us, it's all about making sure this group gets in the playoffs. That's the singular focus in this room." Tampa Bay is expected to give Slater Koekkoek a shot at a roster spot next year. Coburn has nine points in 60 games this season, while averaging 16:38 of ice time per match.
Feb 26 - 8:29 AM

Braydon Coburn has seen his role decline dramatically over the last few years.

Coburn has gone from averaging 22:26 minutes per game in 2013-14, to 19:56 minutes (albeit in just 43 contests) last season, to 16:19 minutes in his first full campaign with Tampa Bay in 2015-16. To make matters worse, he's been trending further downwards this season as he's averaged just 14:42 minutes per game in December compared to 17:29 minutes back in October. His decline is made more disappointing by the fact that he's still just 30 years old, although his lack of offensive output in recent years means that this hasn't had a major impact on the world of fantasy sports.

Braydon Coburn is ready to get back into the lineup in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

He took part fully in Tuesday's morning skate and feels much better after he was limited to 5:43 of ice time on Sunday because of a stomach bug. Coburn stayed on the bench despite the illness in Game 5 just in case he was needed.
Tue, May 26, 2015 02:09:00 PM

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said that Braydon Coburn was sick during Sunday's 2-0 win over New York.

Coburn was stuck on the bench for most of the game and now we know why. The 30-year-old played just 5:43 throughout the contest. His absence didn't hurt his team too much, as Tampa Bay was able to pull out a 2-0 win at Madison Square Garden. The Lightning now hold a 3-2 series lead.

Braydon Coburn's first goal of the playoffs proved to be the game and series winner for the Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday night.

The defenseman broke a goalless tie at 3:58 of the third period in the Lightning's 2-0 shutout win over the visiting Detroit Red Wings. An empty-net goal later in the period by Anton Stralman sealed the victory and the Wings were eliminated in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference First Round series. Tampa Bay was down 3-2 in games before beating the Wings in Detroit Monday and blanking them at home Wednesday night. Stralman's goal also was his first of the postseason. Coburn's goal came on the Lightning's 14th shot, their seventh at even strength, after the Red Wings dominated the first two periods but were not rewarded with a lead. Coburn, obtained prior to the NHL trade deadline from the Philadelphia Flyers, took a pass through the slot from Ryan Callahan and one-timed a slap shot to the opposite top corner behind Wings goalie Petr Mrazek. The Lightning now advances to the Eastern Conference Second Round Series against the Montreal Canadiens. The series opens Friday night in Montreal.
