Jon Cooper praised Cedric Paquette's game after Tampa Bay's win over Chicago on Saturday night.

"This is a team sport and Cedrick’s been given an assignment to do something for the team. It’s been fantastic to watch," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "You get this far in the playoffs, you need guy that sacrifice themselves and that’s all that kid has done. He’s doing one heck of a job." The line of Paquette, Ryan Callahan and J.T. Brown got the better of Jonathan Toews' line in Game 2.

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Cedric Paquette may have a talent for getting under opponents' skin, but Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews indicated that he has his work cut out for him.

Toews said that Paquette has "big shoes to fill" in replacing motormouth Ryan Kesler from the 2015 WCF as the resident pest. It sounds like Chicago won't be phased by Paquette, but he's a guy to watch for PIM and hits if things get out of hand.

Cedric Paquette got through Game 7 without any problems with his apparent right wrist/arm injury.

May 29 - 8:16 PM

Cedric Paquette (wrist/hand) took part in Thursday's practice.

He missed Game 6 after he was injured last Sunday, but getting back on the ice with his teammates is encouraging. However, his status for Friday night's Game 7 against the Rangers is still unclear.
May 28 - 12:53 PM

Cedric Paquette is officially scratched for Game 6 on Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.

Paquette has been a solid forward for the Lightning this postseason in 17 games, but he has just a single point and not worth a spot on your playoff roster. Vladislav Namestnikov will take his place.
May 26 - 8:09 PM

Cedric Paquette is not on the ice for warm-ups for Game 6 on Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.

While it isn't absolutely guaranteed Paquette will not play in the game, it's about as close as it gets. It would be difficult for any player to play after missing warm-ups, especially since being injured in Game 5.
May 26 - 7:40 PM

Cedric Paquette is listed as questionable for Tuesday night's Game 6 match-up against the New York Rangers.

He suffered a right hand/arm injury in the first period on Sunday after he blocked a shot, but he was able to return. However, he logged just 5:43 in Game 5 and skated in just part of Tuesday's optional practice. If he can't play then Vladislav Namestnikov will probably play in his place.
May 26 - 1:51 PM

After leaving with an injury to his right hand earlier in the period, Cedric Paquette has returned Tampa Bay's bench.

May 24 - 8:41 PM

Cedric Paquette went to the dressing room after blocking a shot early in the first period of Sunday's Game 5 versus New York.

Paquette played just 1:44 with the one block to his credit, while on the penalty kill for all of 22 seconds no less. He was seen holding his right hand as he went down the hallway. The Lightning will be down to just 10 forwards while Paquette is out.
May 24 - 8:29 PM

May 7 - 6:46 PM

Cedric Paquette (undisclosed) skated with Tampa Bay's extras on Thursday morning.

He has been on the ice for three straight days, as he recovers from an undisclosed injury. Paquette wasn't able to play in Game 3 Wednesday night and he'll probably be a game-time decision again on Thursday night prior to Game 4.
May 7 - 11:25 AM

Cedric Paquette (undisclosed) is unable to dress for Game 3 Wednesday night versus the Canadiens.

Paquette was able to take part in the team’s morning practice Wednesday but will be unable to return to the lineup for Wednesday night's game. He left Sunday’s game early with an undisclosed injury. The 21- year-old has only scored one goal in nine postseason games while registering just six shots on goal. Jonathan Drouin will take Paquette's place and play his first game of the series.
May 6 - 7:08 PM

Don't be surprised if Cedric Paquette, who is listed as a game-time decision, sits out Wednesday night's game versus Montreal.

"I don't want to rush things right now, since I did this year and it was worse," he said in the morning. "So we'll see tonight." He has made progress since getting injured on Sunday, but it's unclear if he'll play in Game 3.
