2019 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Point (undisclosed) will play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Islanders, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Point will return to the lineup after he was forced to miss Game 5 with an undisclosed issue. Now healthy, the 24-year-old center will slot back into his usual spots on the Lightning's top line and first power-play unit. Point will be a huge addition to the lineup, as he's racked up nine goals and 25 points across 16 playoff contests in the bubble.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
