Nov 6 - 2:23 PM

Lance Bouma has an assist in 11 games this season.

Bouma went into this season with the aim of showing that his 2014-15 campaign when he scored 16 goals and 34 points wasn't a fluke, but so far he's been quiet offensively. Not only has he not found the back of the net, but he's only registered seven shots on goal. Of course it doesn't help that he's been averaging a modest 12:02 minutes per game and that's been skewing a bit downward lately.
Nov 3 - 8:52 AM

Lance Bouma wants to show people that his 2014-15 campaign wasn't a fluke.

Bouma recorded 16 goals in 78 contests that season and then went down to two goals in 44 games in 2015-16. Given that he has just 24 markers over 243 career contests, you could be forgiven for thinking that 2014-15 representing a deviation rather than a true breakout, but Bouma feels otherwise. "That fuels you, for sure. Anyone who thinks I’m never going to have a year like I had two years ago, I want to prove those people wrong," Bouma said. "That’s exciting for me is having a chance to go out there and prove myself. I’ve done it before, so I’m going to do it again." To be fair, injuries were a huge problem for Bouma last season, so perhaps he can replicate his 2014-15 showing under better circumstances.

Lance Bouma has only one goal in 21 games this season.

Bouma has yet to beat a goalie as he scored into an empty net. The forward has struggled with injuries, a one-game team suspension and being a healthy scratch after scoring 16 goals and 34 points last season. "I just think the way I played last year is the way I’ve always played. I didn’t really change anything up — I was myself," Bouma said. "I was a hard player to play against last year, and that was the biggest thing for me. When I’m a hard player to play against, then I’m at my best. I have to make sure I get back to that."

Lance Bouma's scratch on Tuesday was a disciplinary action.

Bouma reported to the Saddledome at about 10:15 a.m. on Monday when he should have arrived at 9:30. Interestingly, he was excused from practice early because he wasn't feeling good, but then returned to the Saddledome about two hours later. With that in mind, it's possible that Bouma wasn't feeling 100% anyways.

Lance Bouma (leg) could return to action as early as Sunday.

Bouma has missed the last four games but was skating on the fourth line in practice Saturday, alongside Matt Stajan and Brandon Bollig. "He brings a lot of energy," Stajan said. "And he’s a smart player. I think he’s played on a lot of checking lines in his career against teams’ best players on a lot of nights. He finishes his hits, and he’s, for sure, our best shot-blocker on our team up front. Obviously, he had such a big year last year. This year’s been tough with injuries, but he always works hard and battles through. He’ll be a big part of our team down the stretch." Bouma has only a goal in 11 games this season after scoring 16 last season along with 18 assists.

It’s more precautionary than anything else. He’s doing good, skating well, he’s ready to go. We just want to make sure it’s fully healed." Bouma has a goal in 11 games this season.
