He struck for a third-period goal on the power play, and he has posted three goals with three assists on the man advantage this season.

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. However, you shouldn't big numbers offensively from him. Namestnikov could be worth picking up if he heats up as a top-line forward, but his past issues with consistency could make his stay on your roster brief.

Don't be shocked if you find Vladislav Namestnikov on Tampa's top line once the season starts.

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. If Namestnikov can stick on this line, he wil surely better his 28-point total of 2016-17 and could be a nice sleeper pick this campaign.

Vladislav Namestnikov might be available for the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

He would be an intriguing player to pick up for the NHL's newest franchise. "It will depend on many factors," Namestnikov told "The NHL expansion draft is in two months. No one knows what might happen. Many players are to be re-signed. So it'll be difficult to make predictions." He struggled in 2016-17 with 10 goals and 28 points in 74 games, but he is a player who can play up and down the lineup.
