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.

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.

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

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.

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.
May 6 - 4:47 PM

Cedric Paquette (undisclosed) is still considered a game-time decision for Game 3 on Wednesday.

Coach Jon Cooper said he didn't speak to the trainers yet, so he wasn't certain about Paquette's status after he was hurt in Game 2. If Paquette can't play then Jonathan Drouin is likely to take his place in the lineup.

May 3 - 8:10 PM

Cedric Paquette (leg) will be in the Lightning lineup Monday night to take on the Canadiens.

Paquette avoided a major injury and will not miss any time due to the leg injury. He has been a useful real-life player for Tampa Bay this year but doesn’t carry any fantasy value. The 21-year-old has 12 goals and 19 points in 58 games this season. Jonathan Marchessault will be a healthy scratch.
