The rugged winger now has three goals and seven points in 24 games this season, and likely better suited for your waiver wire.

Cedric Paquette had the good fortune of catching a puck in the face while sitting on the bench, and has gone back to the locker room.

Cedric Paquette will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Islanders.

It's a bit of a surprising move because Paquette has established himself as a regular in the Lightning's lineup. This will be his first time in the press box this season. Paquette has one goal and one assist in nine games in 2016-17. Nikita Nesterov will also be scratched in this one. The Bolts will try to snap a three-game losing streak tonight.

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.

Cedric Paquette had a goal and a helper in Tampa Bay's home opener versus Detroit.

He contributed just 11 points in 56 games with the Lightning last season, so we wouldn't recommend adding him to your roster despite his productive start to 2016-17.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 09:18:00 AM

Cedric Paquette has inked a two-year, $1.625 million deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Paquette will make $800,000 next season and $825,000 in 2017-18. He would have been a restricted free agent in July after completing his entry-level contract. He had six goals, 11 points, and 51 penalty minutes in 56 contests last season.
