Top Anthony Cirelli News

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Continues hot play

    Cirelli had a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over Columbus on Saturday.

    Cirelli scored under a minute into the second period to make it 2-0 by finishing with a backhand on a breakaway. The cerebral pivot has three goals and eight assists in his last nine games, which boosts his season output to 28 points through 52 outings. That puts Cirelli on pace for his third 40-plus point season of his career. Take advantage of this hot streak.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Helps out on power play

    Cirelli logged a power-play assist and four hits in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Islanders.

    Cirelli has turned up the offense lately, earning two goals and seven assists over his last eight outings. The 26-year-old continues to play on the second line and second power-play unit. For the season, he has 26 points (five on the power play), 91 shots on net, 47 blocked shots, 33 hits, 30 PIM and a minus-7 rating through 51 outings as a solid two-way center. He's worth a look in fantasy when he's clicking on offense.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Big offensive outburst in win

    Cirelli had two goals and an assist in a 7-3 win over the Wild on Thursday.

    Cirelli put the Bolts up 2-1 just 16 seconds into the second frame when he scored on the power play. It was his first snipe in 15 games dating back to Dec. 14. He scored again at 17:52 in the last frame. Cirelli's outburst snapped his six-game point slump, too. Overall, the defensive-minded pivot has 10 goals and 10 assists in 44 games. Those are numbers that have disappointed a lot of fantasy managers who saw his talent at the draft and take the leap. Now with the monkey off his back, Cirelli will hopefully continue to produce a little bit of scoring over the second half.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Better on ice than in fantasy arena

    Cirelli is in a five-game scoring drought.

    He's put up eight goals and eight assists in 35 games, which is as steady as he's ever been, at least in terms of offense. Fantasy managers had hoped that Cirelli stepping into a second-line center role this season would elevate his offense, but that hasn't materialized. There's limited fantasy value in Cirelli's profile right now, but he serves a useful role on the ice for Tampa Bay.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Goal, assist in overtime win

    Cirelli scored a goal on four shots, dished an assist, blocked four shots, added two PIM and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kraken.

    Cirelli has four goals and two assists during his four-game point streak. He's also gone plus-4 with 10 blocks in that span, providing both an uptick in offense and his usual steady defensive work. The 26-year-old center is up to 15 points, 51 shots on net, 29 blocks, 20 PIM and a minus-4 rating through 28 contests overall while regularly featuring on the second line.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Flashes two-way game in win

    Cirelli delivered a power-play goal and a season-high four blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Penguins.

    Cirelli stayed hot following his two-goal performance from Monday's 4-0 win over the Stars. Still, despite managing a No. 2 power-play role, Cirelli has just two points in that key special teams spot. Fantasy managers are likely underwhelmed by his current output of 12 points (six goals, six assists) through 26 games, but the pivot may be turning the corner offensively without losing a step in the defensive zone.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Nets two goals Monday

    Cirelli had two goals in a 4-0 win over Dallas on Monday.

    Cirelli enjoyed his first multi-goal game and his second multi-point outing of the 2023-24 campaign. He's up to five markers and 11 points in 25 appearances this year. Cirelli's offense has trickled in throughout the season with his longest scoring streak being a three-game stretch from Oct. 14-17. Since then, he's failed to factor on the scoresheet in even back-to-back contests.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Tallies lone goal in loss

    Cirelli scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Avalanche.

    Cirelli got the Lightning on the board late in the second period, but they didn't cash in on that momentum in the final frame. He's picked up two points over four games since returning from a hand injury that cost him one contest. On the year, Cirelli has three tallies, nine points, 32 shots on net, 18 blocked shots, 14 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 21 outings. He plays in a second-line role, but his offense is limited enough to make him an option in only deeper fantasy formats.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Expected back against Bruins

    Cirelli (hand) is slated to suit up versus Boston on Monday, per NHL.com.

    Cirelli missed just one game due to his hand injury and looks set to retake a second-line role against the Bruins. The 26-year-old center has scored just once in his last 14 games while putting 21 shots on net. The Ontario native managed four helpers over the stretch but will need to be significantly more productive if he is going to be the 40-point producer he was back in 2021-22.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Out of action Saturday

    Cirelli (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup versus Edmonton on Saturday.

    Cirelli was injured Thursday versus the Blackhawks after he blocked a shot in the second stanza. Cirelli will be replaced in the lineup by Cole Koepke, who was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Saturday. Cirelli had two goals and seven points in 17 games before his injury.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Exits after shot block

    Cirelli (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Blackhawks after blocking a shot in the second period, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Cirelli was limited to one shot on goal in 5:52 of ice time prior to his injury. If Cirelli misses additional time beyond Thursday, Alex Barre-Boulet would likely rejoin the lineup, while Tyler Motte could see additional playing time.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Second goal of season

    Cirelli scored a power-play goal and added an assist Thursday in a 5-3 loss to Chicago.

    He put the Lightning up 1-0 just 3:20 into the first when he scored on a one-timer from the high slot. It was Cirelli's second goal of the season and his first since Oct. 15. Big things were projected for the pivot this season, but his defense-first focus has kept his offense low. The 26-year-old has just seven points and 20 shots in 14 games. With 366 games under his belt, Cirelli may simply be who he's been so far from an offensive standpoint, unless a late 20s breakout comes in a few seasons.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Points in three straight

    Cirellii picked up an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss against the Sabres.

    Cirelli set up Brandon Hagel's goal in the second period, cutting Tampa's deficit to 3-2. The 26-year-old Cirelli has points in three straight games, recording a goal and two assists in that span. After tallying just 11 goals and 29 points in 58 games last season, Cirelli is looking to bounce back in 2023-24. He'll work in a top-six role, centering the Lightning's second line, while seeing some power-play time on the second unit.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Notches first goal of season

    Cirelli scored a goal in Sunday's 5-2 road loss to the Senators.

    Cirelli leveled the scoring at 1-1 early in a seesaw second period on a goal assisted by Darren Raddysh and Tanner Jeannot. The veteran pivot added a plus-2 rating, four shots on goal and two blocked shots while winning 11 of his 20 face-off attempts in 21:20 of ice time. Cirelli will look to build on this effort when Tampa concludes its three-game road trip Tuesday in Buffalo.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: More offense needed this season

    Cirelli will be under pressure to add more offense to a Lightning squad that lost key depth contributors in the offseason.

    There's a big offensive drop-off at forward after Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point, Steven Stamkos and Brandon Hagel, so Cirelli will need to pick up some of the scoring that the departed Alex Killorn put up. Cirelli is best known for his penalty killing, and since his debut (late 2018), he has scored 11 shorthanded goals. The next closest contributor for the Lightning since that time has just three. Cirelli's best season (44 points) came in 2019-20, and he scored at a 41-point pace (29 in 58 games) after returning from injury last season. His offensive skills don't leap off the page, but he works hard. The pressure is on for Cirelli to deliver 50-55 points. It remains to be seen if he can do it.

  • Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Six points in six playoff games

    Cirelli picked up an assist in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Toronto in Game 6.

    Cirelli heads into the offseason after putting up six points (three goals, three assists) in six games against the Maple Leafs. He, Alex Killorn and Brandon Hagel had a strong postseason as a line, but the helper came when Bolts coach Jon Cooper juggled lines and put Steven Stamkos with Cirelli and Killorn. Next season, Cirelli is likely to have at least one new linemate, as Killorn is a UFA heading into the summer.
