2021 Fantasy Outlook
One of the big fishes of free agency, Coleman was caught by Calgary on a six-year deal. A late-blooming power forward, Coleman exceeded 30 points for the third straight season as a member of the Lightning's stellar third line last year. The 29-year-old often played more of a middle-six role, and it's versatility that gives him some added appeal in fantasy. He can play center or wing, although he's mostly been a winger in the NHL, and he can play throughout the lineup effectively. While he won't set any scoring records, the Texas native will bring some heaviness to the Flames' core, and he's likely good for close to 200 hits in a full season. He's shown 30 points to be his floor, but he could challenge for 40-plus points if he sees regular top-six usage and more power-play time than the 21 seconds per game he got last year.

Notches assist Wednesday

Coleman provided an assist, three shots on goal, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Stars in Game 5.
ANALYSIS
Coleman had the secondary assist on Mikael Backlund's game-tying goal at 6:49 of the third period. The helper snapped a 10-game point drought for Coleman, who has yet to find much success on offense. He's recorded eight shots on net, 15 hits and a plus-1 rating through five playoff contests, and his strong checking has made an impact even when his scoring is quiet.

Coleman enjoyed a solid year between the Devils and the Lightning in 2019-20, racking up 32 points and 191 hits in 66 contests. His production in the playoffs was even better, with 13 points in 25 games to help the Lightning lift Lord Stanley's chalice. Coleman's floor in 2020-21 will be third-line duties, but there should be a bit of competition between him and Tyler Johnson for a job on Anthony Cirelli's right flank. Whichever of those two players gets the second-line assignment will be the fantasy player to own -- Johnson has the edge in training camp, but the 29-year-old Coleman seems like the better option long term. Coleman will have a major advantage with his physicality, which makes him worth rostering in standard formats.
Coleman took another step forward with 22 goals and 36 points in 2018-19 after recording 13 goals and 25 points during his first full season in 2017-18. His shot total also climbed from 146 to 213, suggesting Coleman's enhanced production wasn't simply due to luck. Coleman also plays a physical brand of hockey, as evidenced by his 71 PIM last season. While neither his scoring nor his physicality stand out on their own, combine them and you get a useful deep-league asset with room for growth given his career trajectory thus far.
Coleman was a fantastic grinder in his first full NHL season, posting 25 points and 13 goals, including three shorthanded. He should hold down an important role in the bottom six and on the penalty kill, but it's hard to see the Texas native turning into the kind of scorer that really moves the needle in the fantasy realm. Coleman turns 27 in November, so he's probably past the point when you can expect major growth in his game. For what it's worth, he did lead the Devils with 216 hits last season.
Coleman was a third-round selection by the Devils in 2011 after playing his junior hockey with the USHL's Indiana Ice. Coleman played collegiately at Miami University last year, putting up 23 points in 39 games. Turning 21 in November, Coleman likely won't see NHL ice for a few seasons.
Coleman posted 92 points (34 G, 58 A) a year ago for the USHL's Indiana Ice to go along with 72 penalty minutes. As the Devils' third-round selection in this year's draft, Coleman isn't likely to show up in the NHL this season.
