Ross Colton

25-Year-Old Left WingLW
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Lightning have proven they can turn almost anyone into a useful NHL player and Colton is the latest example. A University of Vermont product and former fourth-round pick (2016), Colton seized a full-time role in Tampa Bay in late March and never relinquished it. He finished with nine goals and 12 points in 30 regular-season games, in addition to suiting up in all 23 (four goals, two assists) of Tampa's postseason contests in a run to a second straight Stanley Cup championship. Colton seems likely to begin the 2021-22 campaign on Tampa Bay's third line (thus having limited fantasy appeal), but this is the type of player the Lightning have had success with in the past and it wouldn't be surprising to see Colton outperform expectations.

Delivers helper Monday
LWTampa Bay Lightning
June 20, 2022
Colton notched an assist and seven PIM in Monday's 6-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 3.
ANALYSIS
Colton set up Nick Paul for the game-winning tally at 1:26 of the second period. The helper ended a nine-game point drought for Colton, who hasn't been able to rack up much offense in the back half of the playoffs. The third-liner is up to nine points (five goals, four assists), 34 shots on net, 55 hits, 11 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 20 contests this postseason.
