After a hot start, Killorn has slowed down considerably. He's scored just two goals in his last 14 contests (the goals have come in his last four games).

The Bolts couldn't hold on for the win, as they allowed Montreal to score three unanswered goals over the final 20 minutes. Killorn has been terrific so far this season. The 26-year-old has six goals and one assist in seven games this season.

Alex Killorn has lived up to his large contract so far this season.

Killorn signed a seven-year, $31.15 million contract in the off-season and the security of that deal seems to have put him at ease and has resulted in him playing exceptional hockey. In Tampa's first five games Killorn has scored four goals, including one Saturday night against the Senators in a 4-1 victory. The 26-year-old forward is tied for the team lead in scoring with five points and is certainly enjoying his stint centering a line featuring the talented Nikita Kucherov and Tyler Johnson. If Killorn is a free agent in your pool, go get him.

Killorn can't be traded without his permission from 2017-18 through 2019-20. After that, he can limit Tampa Bay's options to a list of 16 teams. He's coming off a season where he had 14 goals and 40 points in 81 contests.

Alex Killorn has agreed to a seven-year, $31.15 million contract.

In other words, Killorn will come with a $4.45 million annual cap hit. The 26-year-old (27 in September) forward has recorded 41, 38, and 40 points in each of the last three seasons. Given his age, he's not really a prospect anymore and we have doubts that he'll ever achieve much higher heights offensively. He was coming off of a two-year, $5.1 million contract and had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 20 that's now unnecessary.
