Brayden Point earns Player of the Week honors after leading the Bolts with seven points in four games last week. 

In the Lightning's 4-0 shutout of the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, Point led the way with two goals and an assist. Point scored in the first period to double the Bolts' lead and then again late in regulation to give Tampa Bay a comfortable cushion. He also picked up the secondary assist on Nikita Kucherov's third period goal.

On Thursday vs. the Hurricanes, Point factored on all three of the Lightning's goals. Point assisted on Ondrej Palat's game-tying goal midway through the third perod and then scored twice in the final four minutes to help the Bolts secure a 3-1 win. 

It only took Point 26 seconds to get on the scoresheet in Tampa Bay's 5-3 win over Buffalo on Saturday. Off a faceoff win, Point was stationed out in front to fire home a rebound of a Nikita Kucherov shot. 

Point leads the Bolts with 29 goals and is second on the team with 61 points.
