Hedman scored an into an empty net for his first goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Sabres. It only took Hedman a month to light the lamp, but since it was into an empty net, it only really counts in fantasy terms. Hedman's numbers have been down with the Lightning struggling on offense, but perhaps this is a turning stone in the season for the Bolts.
Hedman picked up two assists in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Predators. Hedman was questionable with a head injury entering Tuesday's tilt, but was able to suit up, and picked up two more points. He now has six points in as many games on the year, and should continue to be one of the NHL's brightest young stars on the blue line.
Hedman (head) will suit up for Tuesday's matchup with the Predators, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Hedman missed Saturday's game against the Sabres with the head injury, but returned to practice Monday without limitations, and will re-join Tampa Bay's lineup for Tuesday's tilt against Nashville. The star defender has already tallied four assists in five games this season.
Hedman (head) indicated that he felt good after Monday's practice and was without limitations, and he seems to be trending towards playing Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Hedman left last Thursday's game against Stars after getting his head slammed into the boards, and missed Saturday's game as a result. His return to practice Monday certainly bodes well, and assuming nothing happens over the next day, it seems more likely than not he'll be in the lineup.
Hedman (head) returned to practice Monday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Hedman was part of the defensive pairings as well, potentially foreshadowing a return to the lineup Tuesday against the Predators. The team hasn't confirmed as such, but that will likely be revealed before the contest.
