Gourde scored his first goal of the season in Saturdays's 6-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Gourde was the darling of the NHL when he broke in to the league in 2015-16. His 64 points that season were likely lightning in a bottle for this diminutive forward. He has just four points in eight games so far in 2019-20. Given his small stature and placement on a lower line, Gourde's fantasy value is likely to continue to be depressed.
Gourde picked up an assist Thursday in a 4-3 shootout victory over Boston.
Gourde remains without a goal in seven regular-season games this season and 10 total, dating back into early April. But he does have three assists. Gourde may never recapture the glory of his 64-point rookie season. But he can still be fantasy relevant in deeper formats.
Gourde recorded a power-play assist in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.
Gourde had a secondary assist on Kevin Shattenkirk's power play score in the first period to mark his second helper in as many games. The Lightning's will remain powerful on the man advantage this year, so Gourde shouldn't have trouble matching or surpassing last year's 48-point mark as long as he stays on the power-play unit.
