2018-06-02 analysis It's hard to know what will come for this productive rookie -- not even sniper Nikita Kucherov has a shooting rate that high. Gourde is a talented forward, but we may see his goal scoring slip back a little if opposing teams focus on him more in future seasons. And at 26, Gourde's offensive peak may be short and sweet. He's certainly valuable, especially in single-year formats, but keeper leaguers
2018-06-02 update Gourde's 64-point regular season was fueled by an 18.4 percent shooting percentage, something that may be unsustainable in future seasons.
2018-05-01 analysis One of the biggest breakout performers from the regular season with 64 points (25 goals, 39 assists) in 82 games, Gourde opened the scoring by anticipating a cross-ice helper from Brayden Point and catching Boston goalie Tuukka Rask out of position. While he's only 5-foot-9, 167 pounds, Gourde is a trailblazer with a scorer's touch, and it appears that he's woken up after etching the scoresheet ju
2018-05-01 update Gourde registered a power-play goal as the Lightning topped the Bruins 4-2 in Game 2 to even the series Monday.
2018-04-13 analysis Gourde's second-period tally made it 3-0 at the time, but it morphed into the game-winner after the visitors managed to get two back prior to Tampa Bay pulling away. Those who picked the 26-year-old forward in playoff pools on the heels of a 64-point regular season are already getting rewarded for that decision.
2018-04-13 update Gourde finished with a power-play goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 Game 1 win over New Jersey.
2018-04-09 analysis The goal was his first in 13 games, but that was no matter. His goal was his 25th; that point was his 64th. Brad Richards had 62 points (2000-01) while Tyler Johnson put in 24 goals (2013-14). Gourde was undrafted and banished to the ECHL just five years ago, only to go into the Bolts' record books. The playoffs will be a test for him, but his star is certainly on the rise.
2018-04-09 update Gourde's goal Friday night made him the Lightning's all-time rookie scoring leader.
2018-04-07 analysis Because of all the household names on the Lightning, Gourde's flown under the radar in plenty of fantasy circles. He shouldn't have. With Friday's multi-point showing, the 26-year-old rookie is now up to 25 goals and 39 assists for the campaign, and he's also provided sneaky help in the plus-minus (34) and PIM (50) columns.
2018-04-07 update Gourde scored, added two assists and recorded a plus-5 rating during Friday's 7-5 win over Buffalo.
2018-03-23 analysis That's consecutive games with exactly two assists, one shot and a plus-1 rating for Gourde. While those performances aren't anything exceptional, fantasy owners will certainly take them.

2018-03-07 analysis The rookie continues to impress, and Gourde now has seven goals and 20 points in 17 games since the beginning of February. The addition of J.T. Miller to the Lightning's second line hasn't disrupted the chemistry Gourde has shown with Brayden Point, and fatigue shouldn't be a factor down the stretch for the 26-year-old given his extensive AHL experience prior to breaking into Tampa's lineup for go

2018-03-01 analysis A speedy forward with hockey smarts, Gourde has been a tremendous find for fantasy owners this season.

2018-02-23 update Gourde collected two assists and took a minor penalty during Thursday's 4-3 win over Ottawa.
2018-02-15 analysis Gourde is a great story. He started the season on the fourth line and last game, he rose to the top-six on a line with Tyler Johnson and Steven Stamkos. And his 22 goals this season are second-best on a strong Lightning squad. Gourde has been a pleasant surprise for the Bolts and fantasy owners alike.

2018-02-09 analysis Gourde actually hit the 20-goal plateau before stud teammate Steven Stamkos, who also scored in the win. This little buzzsaw sits second in rookie goal scoring behind only Brock Boeser, who has 26.

He's not another Mighty Mite, but he is a solid, secondary scorer who is on a four-game, se

2018-02-08 analysis Gourde's put together a marvelous four-game point streak, with three goals and three multi-point outings over that stretch.

2018-01-24 analysis The rookie has now found the back of the net in consecutive games, giving him five goals and seven points through 10 games in January.

2017-11-18 analysis The 25-year-old may be emerging as a dark horse candidate for the Calder Trophy now that he's up to six goals and 14 points in 20 games -- including nine points in his last eight contests. Gourde has some real value in standard formats, so add him while you can.
2017-11-18 update Gourde recorded two goals during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders.
2017-11-09 analysis Gourde's assists versus Minnesota extended his point streak to four games. With 11 points in 16 outings, the winger has already surpassed his 2016-17 numbers (eight points in 20 games) and is thriving in a top-six role in the NHL's most potent offense. The only knock on the 25-year-old's season thus far is his lack of power-play production, as he has earned just one goal with the man advantage des
