In 13 games played in December, Killorn scored nine goals and added eight assists for a team-high 17 points. He also led the Lightning with three game winning goals last month.

Killorn's best performance of the month came on December 7 against San Jose when he scored a goal and added three assists in Tampa Bay's 7-1 win. With the Bolts up by a goal midway through the second period, Killorn scored the eventual game-winning goal, jamming a home a loose puck to double the lead. He also contributed three assists as the Lightning blew the game open. Killorn's four points were the most he's had in a game this season and one shy of his career-high.
