28-Year-Old Left WingLW
Tampa Bay Lightning
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gourde suffered through a sophomore slump last season, falling from 25 goals and 64 points in 2017-18 to 22 and 48, respectively, in 2018-19. We wish we could say it was because he was dropped off a scoring line, but that wasn't the case. His two centers (Steven Stamkos and Brayden Point) each delivered more than 92 points each. Gourde couldn't sustain his white-hot start (21 points in his first 22 games), and put up just five goals and six assists in the next 34 contests. Yes, his last 24 games were better -- he delivered 16 points -- but Gourde never got back to the lofty expectations he set at the start of the year, and he probably won't ever get back to his rookie production. However, Gourde will be a 50-55 point, second-line winger who gets time on the second power-play unit, and should also deliver about 20 goals, give or take. Read Past Outlooks

Strikes on power play
LWTampa Bay Lightning
September 25, 2020
Gourde scored a power-play goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars in Game 4.
ANALYSIS
Gourde tied the game at 3-3 late in the second period with his seventh tally of the postseason. The 28-year-old forward has two goals in his last four games. He's up to 14 points, 47 hits and 50 shots on goal through 23 postseason appearances. Two of Gourde's goals have come on the power play, but he's done most of his work at even strength.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
In any other season, Gourde's superb rookie campaign probably would have guided him to the Calder Trophy, but not in 2017-18 with guys like Brock Boeser, Mathew Barzal and Clayton Keller patrolling the ice. Now 26 years old, Gourde delivered 25 goals (fourth-best among rookies) and 64 points, including 13 on the power play. Despite being generously listed at 5-foot-9 and 172 pounds, he's absolutely fearless in corners and in front of the net. An offensive drop off is possible since it will be difficult for Gourde to repeat his 18.4 shooting percentage. Still, count on 50-55 points -- including another 25 goals -- in 2018-19. He'll help your team.
