Vladislav Namestnikov was back with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov in Thursday's preseason loss to Florida.
Namestnikov scored a goal in the 5-2 defeat. He played with Stamkos and Kucherov at the beginning of the 2016-17 campaign and could start there again this season.

He had good chemistry with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov at the beginning of last season and started this season's training camp playing alongside the Bolts' two superstars.
