Lightning's Anton Stralman: Placed on IR

Stralman (upper body) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Stralman reportedly has been able to take full contact in practice, a sure sign that he's making progress in his rehab, but the Lightning chose to recall a pair of forwards from the minors -- Michael Bournival and Joel Vermin -- on Wednesday, necessitating Stralman's move to injured reserve. Based on the league's retroactivity rules, he'll be eligible to return once healthy. The Lightning next play Thursday night against host St. Louis.
