Callahan has 126 hits and 53 blocked shots this season and both tallies lead the Lightning. He has a point in each of his last three games, but his 17 in 52 this season have been a massive disappointment for fantasy owners after 54 points last season. Callahan will be 31 in March and the Bolts surely wish his contract wasn't on the books. He's just not delivering in a way that benefits most fantasy squads.
Callahan (lower body) will play Friday against the Oilers, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Callahan exited Tuesday's game against the Flames with a lower-body injury, but returned to practice Thursday, which was the first indication he would likely be available for Friday's matchup with Edmonton. The 30-year-old winger has tallied 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in 39 games this season.
Callahan (lower body) returned to practice Thursday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Callahan exited Tuesday's game against the Flames with a lower-body injury, but his presence at practice Thursday bodes well for his chances of suiting up for Friday's matchup with Edmonton. Expect an update on Callahan's status following Friday's morning skate.
Callahan left Tuesday's game with a lower-body injury and will not return, the Tampa Tribune's Erik Erlendsson reports. He was one of three Lightning players with a minus-2 plus/minus rating in just 5:31 of ice time Tuesday before exiting. His next chance to take the ice will be Friday in Edmonton.
Callahan was all over the box score in Thursday's win over Ottawa, recording two assists (one on an empty-netter), a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes, three shots, a block, four hits and four takeaways. Well, that gives Cally three points in two games and pushes him into double-digit points for the year, but he's still looking to break a lengthy goal drought that extends all the way back to Nov. 1. The great thing about Callahan is that he's such a rock defensively, he doesn't lose minutes when he's not scoring. Now that he's starting to pick it up on the offensive end, it may not be long until he snaps the goal drought.
