2018-05-01 analysis Sergachev is riding a three-game point streak, as two of his three makers came with the man advantage. The Russian has become a power-play specialist in the playoffs, considering he is averaging a mere 11:47 of ice time in the postseason, but is logging 1:56 of those minutes with the extra attacker.
2018-05-01 update Sergachev picked up an assist against in Game 2 against the Bruins on Monday.
2018-04-28 analysis He has a goal in each of his last two games. Sergachev's 40-point regular-season performance was worthy of a Calder nomination, but the teenage Russian failed to get a nomination. He'll be a fantasy mainstay for a decade or more and an on-ice beast in short order.
2018-04-28 update Sergachev scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Bruins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Second Round.
2018-04-21 analysis It was a sweet wrister from the right point that beat Cory Schneider high glove side. Sergachev (19 years, 300 days) became the youngest player in Bolts' history to score a playoff goal.
2018-04-21 update Sergachev scored his first career NHL playoff goal in Saturday's Game 5, 3-1 victory over New Jersey.
2018-04-14 analysis He's a great young defender, but his ice time is sorely sheltered. Sergachev played just 12:50 in Saturday's win, but 0:52 of it came on the power play. His future is bright, but this postseason will be a learning experience for the rookie, especially with Victor Hedman, Ryan McDonagh and Anton Stralman soaking up massive ice time.
2018-04-14 update Sergachev has one assist in two playoff games for Tampa Bay.
2018-03-23 analysis This was Sergachev's second multi-point performance in seven games after he had gone 33 contests without such an outing. The 19-year-old Russian's offensive ceiling is astronomical, but he isn't getting many opportunities to put his skills on display for a Tampa Bay team with Stanley Cup aspirations. Questions about Sergachev's play in his own zone have severely limited his ice time, as illustrate
2018-03-23 update Sergachev finished with a power-play goal and an even-strength assist in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Islanders.
2018-03-08 analysis The points snapped an eight-game point drought. Sergachev now has 33 points on the season. While his production has slowed in the second half, the teenage stud and his all-round game are at the top of the rookie blue line class in 2017-18.
2018-03-08 update Sergachev picked up two assists in Thursday's 5-3 victory over the Rangers.
2018-02-28 analysis His last goal came Dec. 16 against Colorado. Since then, Sergachev has potted eight assists, and in contrast, he had 20 points in his first 32 games. Sergachev remains an elite keeper, but his value in seasonal leagues is plummeting.
2018-02-28 update Sergachev has not scored a goal in 29 games.
2018-02-09 analysis His ice time remains protected after a healthy scratch late last month. But Sergachev continues to sit in a tie on top of the rookie defender scoring list with New Jersey's Will Butcher; both have 29 points. And both young men sit in the NHL's top-25 scoring defenders overall. That's no small feat. Continue to throw Sergachev onto the ice for your fantasy squad. The next 30 games will be tougher t
2018-02-09 update Sergachev picked up an assist Thursday in a win over the Canucks and now has two assists in his last three games.
2018-01-23 analysis The 19-year-old blueliner had an solid first 39 games, accruing eight goals, 25 points and a plus-17 rating. However, since then he's had just two assists and took a four-minute penalty -- including an unsportsmanlike conduct call -- in Monday's game against the Blackhawks. He'll be replaced by Slater Koekkoek for the time being, but don't expect the Lightning to keep the talented youngster in the
2018-01-23 update Sergachev is a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Predators, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
2018-01-12 analysis Sergachev, who has already tallied eight goals and 26 points in 44 games, will likely skate on Tampa Bay's top pairing and first power-play unit while Hedman is sidelined, a role that could lead to a noticeable boost in offensive production for the rookie defender. The 2016 first-round pick is a top-notch option in all fantasy formats. Sergachev, who has already tallied eight goals and 26 points in 44 games, will likely skate on Tampa Bay's top pairing and first power-play unit while Hedman is sidelined, a role that could lead to a noticeable boost in offensive production for the rookie defender. Formerly with the Habs, the 2016 ninth overall pick is a top-notch option in all fantasy formats.
2018-01-12 analysis Sergachev, who has already tallied eight goals and 26 points in 44 games, will likely skate on Tampa Bay's top pairing and first power-play unit while Hedman is sidelined, a role that could lead to a noticeable boost in offensive production for the rookie defender. The 2016 first-round pick is a top-notch option in all fantasy formats.
2018-01-12 update Sergachev will likely take on a larger role while Victor Hedman, who is expected to miss 3-to-6 weeks with a lower-body injury, is sidelined, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
2017-12-31 analysis Sergachev is the NHL's top-scoring rookie defender and 11th overall with 25 points (eight goals, 17 assists). That ties him with none other than Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson and Kris Letang. One word. Wow. It's hard to remember that Sergachev is just 19 years old. One more word. Stud.
2017-12-31 update Sergachev picked up two assists in Sunday's 5-0 win over Columbus. He snapped a five-game point drought.
2017-12-17 analysis The 19-year-old defenseman has been on fire recently, posting four points, 12 shots, and six blocks over his last four outings. Sergachev often averages over two minutes of power-play time, too, adding further upside to his cross-category production. Look for him to continue producing as part of a high-scoring Tampa Bay squad.
2017-12-17 update Sergachev had a goal, an assist and three shots in 15:37 of ice time in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Avalanche. He also added two hits and a blocked shot.
2017-11-17 analysis For a 19-year-old rookie defenseman, Sergachev is exceeding all expectations right now. The youngster has put up 14 points through 19 contests and is also sporting a tidy plus-9 rating. Sergachev isn't seeing heavy minutes, but he has a place on the team's second power-play unit and possesses strong offensive instincts. The young stud is thriving on the top team in the NHL and should be owned in t
2017-11-17 update Sergachev scored his fifth goal of the season and added an assist in Thursday's win over the Stars.
2017-10-31 analysis Remarkably, Sergachev has put up at least a point in eight of his last 10 games. The next major milestone for this young man comes after game 39 when the Bolts will need to weigh losing a year of eligibility on his next contract by keeping him past that point. But at this point, Sergachev is tied for third overall in scoring from the blue line in the NHL -- he's going nowhere if he keeps that up.
2017-10-31 update Sergachev's assist Monday night gave him 11 points (four goals, seven assists) and thrusts him into a tie for second in rookie scoring in the NHL.
2017-10-24 analysis Sergachev is poised to suit up for his 10th game for the Lightning on Tuesday in Carolina, triggering the first year of his entry-level contract with the team. The 19-year-old Russian has been outstanding for the Bolts thus far, racking up three goals and five assists, and making the decision to keep him with the big club a seemingly easy one despite the potential fiscal ramifications.
2017-10-24 update Coach Jon Cooper said Tuesday that Sergachev will stay with the Lightning for the foreseeable future, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
2017-10-22 analysis The 19-year-old just played his ninth NHL game and the big decision looms -- burn the first year of his entry-level deal or send him back to junior. Sergachev's recent dominance means he's likely to stay, but remember the 40-game threshold. The Bolts can return him to junior any time before he plays 40 games -- it would keep his years of service in check and keep the clock from ticking toward unre
2017-10-22 update Sergachev scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist Saturday in a 7-1 win over Pittsburgh. He has picked up two points in each of his last three games.
2017-10-15 analysis So far, the Bolts are protecting the young stud with limited ice and positive zone starts. Sergachev only played 10:27 after skating a mere 5:22 Thursday against the Pens. There is still a chance the team sends him back to the OHL after his ninth game rather than burning a year of his entry-level deal. However, Sergachev looks ready to be a regular NHL defender. He has two assists in five games.
2017-10-15 update Sergachev picked up an assist on the power play in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Blues.
2017-10-02 analysis Great news for the talented defender who is clearly way ahead of the development curve than most blueliners his age. However, fantasy owners, especially those in single-year leagues, need to make a mental note about this guy. There's a clause in the trade with the Habs that says the Bolts will not get the conditional second-round pick in 2018 if Sergachev plays 40 games. Watch his ice time careful
2017-10-02 update Sergachev has made the Lightning's opening night roster, reports the Tampa Tribune.
2017-09-29 analysis He was paired with Anton Stralman and is a big, puck-moving defender who'll be an excellent complement to Victor Hedman in a couple years. "He's got the whole package," said coach Jon Cooper. "He's strong, he's big, he's got skill, he can skate." Sergachev does not have a roster spot officially locked up, but it's looking almost certain at this point.
2017-09-29 update Sergachev continues to gain confidence and had perhaps his best game Thursday against Florida.
2017-09-21 analysis Sergachev is a gifted skater with great size who is NHL ready, but the test for him will be the mental side of the game. Until he plays NHL games, the Bolts won't know if he can handle the pressure as a 19-year-old defender. His target is a roster spot on opening night and so far, so good.
2017-09-21 update Sergachev had a goal and was plus-3 in a team-high 22:16 against the Hurricanes in preseason action Wednesday night.
