Cedric Paquette says he's feeling healthier than he did last season.

Paquette missed a month because of three broken ribs last year, but never seemed comfortable even when he did return to the lineup. "It was tough," Paquette said. "I couldn't be as physical as I wanted. I wasn't good offensively. Defensively I was okay, but it wasn't there all the time. It's tough mentally to get back out there and try to play your game when something is wrong." In Thursday's regular season opener, he looked a lot more like himself. He played a physical game and chipped in with a goal in the win over Detroit. Paquette won't have any value in standard fantasy leagues, but he'll remain an effective energy player for the Lightning.
