J.T. Brown (undisclosed) won't be available on Tuesday.

Brown also missed Sunday's contest due to the ailment. He's been listed as day-to-day, so perhaps the Christmas break is all he needs to recover. That's just pure speculation though.

Brown assisted on Erik Condra's first period goal and Brian Boyle's third period goal. The 25-year-old has two goals and 10 points in 25 games this season. He's not worth an add in standard fantasy leagues.

J.T. Brown has been getting more ice time lately for the Lightning.

He averaged just 9:46 of playing time per game in the first 19 contests, but in his last four outings he has been granted 15:45 per match.

Brown has collected four assists in his last five games to give him seven points in 21 contests.

J.T. Brown was a healthy scratch Tuesday night.

He has one goal and one assist in six games this campaign. Brown was the odd-man out against Nashville, but Tampa Bay may continue to rotate their 13th forward spot.

J.T. Brown wants to get his shot off quicker and hit the net more often this season.

He has made that his focus going into his third full season with Tampa Bay. Brown's shot has looked more accurate during training camp and he sniped the game-winning goal against Dallas in preseason action last Thursday. "It seems like this year he's lowered his sight line a little bit," coach Jon Cooper said. "But it just goes to show that when you shoot, you give yourself a chance to score. You get those opportunities on your stick, and he threw a puck on net and we win a game." Despite his improvement, Brown isn't someone to target in fantasy leagues. He has seven goals and 29 points in his career over 120 NHL matches.

J.T. Brown earned an assist in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final.

His first helper of the playoffs came on Ryan Callahan's opening goal of the contest. Brown finished the match with a plus-2 rating and six hits. He has helped form a successful checking line alongside Callahan and Cedric Paquette, who both scored in Tampa Bay's 3-2 win over Chicago in Game 3.

J.T. Brown has posted one goal in 18 playoff games, but his ice time has increased substantially from the opening round.

Brown played over 10 minutes just once in his first six 2015 postseason appearances, but his playing time has nearly doubled since then. He had plenty of chances against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals, but couldn't contribute more offense. "The one thing we always have in our back pocket is J.T.," coach Jon Cooper said. "That's why I'm just hoping that one of these pucks finally goes in for him, because if there's one guy that deserves it, it's J.T."

JT Brown was made a late addition to Tampa Bay's lineup for Game One against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night. He'll skate with Brenden Morrow and Vladislav Namestnikov.

Believe it or not, Brown has played in five of Tampa Bay's first seven playoff games already. But he's skated an average of just 8:40 with five total shots on goal and no points to show for his efforts. Suffice it to say that the young forward who scored just nine points in 52 games this season ought not to have a place on your roster.
