Tampa Bay Lightning
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Point was his typical solid self (23 goals, 48 points in 56 games) for the Lightning in 2020-21, but his production was down just slightly with both Nikita Kucherov (all) and Steven Stamkos (some) out for long stretches of the regular season. Both were back for the playoffs, and Point responded with a playoff-high 14 goals in 23 games, helping Tampa Bay win their second straight Stanley Cup. Point was rewarded with a new, well-deserved eight-year, $76 million contract this summer. Just 25 years of age, it's scary to think Point's best days may be ahead of him as he is locked into a major role on the NHL's best team. Point has legitimate 90-point upside in addition to an extremely high floor. He makes for a fine early round selection in all fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed an eight-year, $76 million contract extension with the Lightning in July of 2021.
Signs massive extension
CTampa Bay Lightning
July 28, 2021
Point agreed to terms on an eight-year, $76 million contract extension with Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Point is now under contract with the Lightning for the next nine seasons, which would bring him to age 34. Considering the center's rookie campaign was the only time he failed to reach the 20-goal threshold, it certainly makes sense the organization wanted to lock him up long term. The Calgary native should continue to feature on the top power-play unit and first line, which sets him up as a top-tier fantasy option.

2017
Point didn't come close to his 41 goal, 92 point breakout 2018-19 performance in 2019-20, but he was still a highly productive player, totaling 25 goals, 39 assists and 13 power-play points while firing 141 shots on goal in 66 regular-season games. The 24-year-old pivot did, however, seem to find his 2018-19 form during postseason play, racking up 14 goals and 33 points in 23 contests, helping Tampa Bay to its second Stanley Cup championship in franchise history. Point will continue to be featured on the Lightning's top line while also seeing ample time on the man advantage as a member of his team's No. 1 power-play unit in 2020-21, and at just 24 years old, it's safe to assume the best is yet to come for the 2014 third-round pick. Despite his regression in 2019-20, Point will still possess 40-goal and 100-point upside over the course of a full season going forward, making him more than worthy of an early-round pick in this year's fantasy drafts.
Point's breakout in 2018-19 gave the Bolts three scorers in the league's top-12. His 92 points, which included a whopping 41 goals, were a massive jump from his 66 (32 goals, 34 assists) from the season before. Point pretty much does it all. His offensive skills, speed and hockey IQ are off the charts, and his defensive game is already mature. For keeper owners, Point is a stud, but fantasy owners in single-year leagues need to think long and hard about his potential in 2019-20. We can't help but believe there will be some regression in his game, primarily because he posted an unsustainable 21.5 shooting percentage last campaign. Point's average over the previous two seasons? Try 14.75. Additionally, the 23-year-old is expected to miss the first few weeks of the season after undergoing offseason hip surgery, which will further cut into his production. All things equal, grab another guy in round one. But leap on him if he's there in round two.
Point's sophomore season was so much better than predicted. He exploded for 66 points, good for third-best on the Bolts, and his 32 goals were second only to Nikita Kucherov's 39. Point then delivered at a point-per-game in the postseason. More impressively, he was the best Bolt on the ice in the team's playoff series win over the Bruins as well as the superior producer facing the Caps in the conference final. Point can be deployed in all situations and is a strong 200-foot player. As Tampa's second-line center, the 22-year-old could bring his fantasy owners a solid 75-point campaign. He's no longer a fantasy sleeper. He's a star.
Point's excellent rookie campaign last season was overshadowed by the explosion of rookie talent in the NHL. He finished with 40 points in 68 games, which projected to close to 50 if he'd played a full season. That's pretty darn good for a guy who made the jump from Moose Jaw of the Western Hockey League all the way to Tampa. At 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, Point could stand to add some bulk, but his combination of speed, skill and grit make him a virtual lock as the pivot on the Bolts' third line in 2017-18. There's value in that spot, as the team will push that line hard, and Point's versatility means he can flip to the wing and skate with the big boys on Tampa's top two lines, if needed. Point will bring sneaky value to fantasy owners, and keeper-leaguers can bank on rising value over the next three or four seasons, whether it's in Tampa or elsewhere.
