Namestnikov tied the game at one after Buffalo's Sam Reinhart opened the scoring in the game. The 22-year-old now has two goals and three points in six games this season. He was Tampa Bay's first round pick, 27th overall, in 2011.
Oct 18 - 11:26 AM

Vladislav Namestnikov has inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Vladislav Namestnikov was among five players to receive a qualifying offer from the Lightning.

Jun 29 - 6:28 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov is expected to get more opportunities with the Lightning next year.

He skated in 43 games with Tampa Bay during the regular season, where he contributed nine goals and 16 points, and another 12 games in the playoffs. Namestnikov will probably play as a bottom-six forward, so his fantasy value will remain limited.
Jun 22 - 12:36 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov will indeed play in place of Cedric Paquette on Tuesday against the New York Rangers in Game 6.

Don't go rushing to pick up the rookie Namestnikov, though. He has just a single point in 11 games this postseason.
May 26 - 8:04 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov could be in the lineup for Game 6 versus New York on Tuesday night.

He has not played since Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final, but may draw back in if Cedric Paquette, who is listed as questionable, is unable to dress. Namestnikov and Jonathan Marchessault will likely take part in the pregame warmup.
May 26 - 3:06 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov is a healthy scratch for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals Monday night.

Brian Boyle returned to the lineup and Nikita Nesterov is dressing as a seventh defensemen for Tampa Bay, so Namestnikov will be watching from the press box. Namestnikov has just one assist in 11 games this postseason.
May 18 - 8:34 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov was a healthy scratch in Game 6 versus Montreal.

May 13 - 12:29 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov will tag in for Jonathan Drouin in Saturday evening's Game Five. Detroit leads the series 3-2.

Unfortunately, neither player has strong potential in the fantasy world. Though of the two, it's Namestnikov that has the lone point (an assist) in the postseason.
Apr 25 - 5:48 PM

Tampa Bay scratched Vladislav Namestnikov on Thursday for Game 5.

He averaged just 8:25 of ice time per game in the first three contests of Tampa Bay's opening round series versus Detroit. Namestnikov had one assist and no shots before heading to the press box.
Apr 24 - 10:20 AM

Apr 8 - 1:22 PM

Vladislav Namestnikov recorded three points in a game for the first time in his career during Monday's 5-3 win over Montreal.

Namestnikov had a great night. He won 64% of his draws, played 3:26 on the power play, and even laid out a hit. His two goals were pretty as he froze Carey Price both times with a deke before beating him short-side. The markers give him nine goals and 16 points through 38 games this season.
