Palat is a first-line cornerstone and leader for the Bolts. He rebounded from an injury-riddled 40-point season in 2015-16 with 52 points, solid power-play production and good increases in both shots and hits in 2016-17. At 26, Palat remains in his prime and his speed, smarts and soft touch make him a virtual lock for another 50-plus point season, including strong contributions on the power play. His multi-categorical contributions put him squarely in the top-15 fantasy left wingers in the NHL. Palat inked a five-year contract extension that will keep him in a Lightning uniform through 2021-22, so keeper owners can rest assured of his role in the top six for at least another three or four seasons.

  2. Ondrej Palat 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Like Triplet linemate Tyler Johnson, Palat struggled through injuries in 2015-16 to finish with just 40 points and a plus-10 rating in 62 games. It was a far cry from his two-way excellence of the previous two seasons – you know, the ones where he averaged better than 60 points and delivered a combined plus-63. But Palat remains a top scorer on one of the NHL's best lines and will return to his all-round excellence in 2016-17.
  3. Ondrej Palat 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Palat is the third member of the Bolts’ fantastic Triplet Line -- depending on which side you count from. He, Tyler Johnson and Nikita Kucherov have uncanny chemistry, and they formed what was arguably the best 1-2-3 punch in the entire NHL last season. His skills aren’t as dramatic as the other two, but Palat's no slouch, either, having built on his 2013-14 breakout with an encore of 16 goals, 47 assists and a plus-31 rating in 75 games. With fast feet and a quick stick, he has the rare ability to make those around him better. But Palat's so much more than just a ‘glue guy’ – he delivers when it matters most. His eight postseason goals in the Bolts’ recent run were more than Steven Stamkos himself. Palat will deliver close to 20 goals, 60-plus points and a great rating while playing on the second-unit power play, too. And he’ll do it year after year after … you get the point. Now go get him.
  4. Ondrej Palat 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    This seventh-round pick not only electrified the Tampa Bay Times Forum, but he was so hot he almost melted the ice. Palat started on the third line and eventually played his way onto a scoring line. He became the Bolts' top two-way forward and one of its best on-ice leaders, as a rookie, nonetheless. And he just kept getting better and better as the season progressed, picking up 22 of his 59 points in the 18 games after Martin St. Louis was traded. He also finished an incredible plus-32 in 81 games, good enough for a tie for seventh in the NHL in that category. He's penciled in as the Bolts' No. 1 left winger and will get to play beside Steven Stamkos this season.
  5. Ondrej Palat 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Palat absolutely exploded in the Calder Cup Finals this past season, ultimately leading all scorers with 26 points. His skill set isn't elite and he needs to build some strength given his skinny (180), 6-0 frame. But he can play a two-way game and is smarter than the average bear, which he showed in a 14-game audition with the Bolts last year. He'll compete for a full-time gig with the mother club.
