    Lightning's Jason Garrison: Will miss 3-to-5 weeks

    Garrison (lower body) was placed on injured reserve and will miss a minimum of three weeks, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Garrison's absence may make a significant impact on the Lightning blue line, but is unlikely to affect fantasy rosters as he's registered a paltry seven points in 52 contests. Additionally, the defenseman has rarely seen action on the power-play, which further lowers his value. Tampa will call-up the untested Slater Koekkoek to fill the veteran's spot on the depth chart.

    Lightning's Jason Garrison: Suffers injury

    Garrison left Monday's game against the Senators with a lower-body injury and will not return. Garrison left Monday's contest against Ottawa after just 4:10 of ice time. The 31-year-old veteran defenseman can be considered day-to-day for now, and his next chance to return to action will come Tuesday when the Lightning play at Montreal.

    Lightning's Jason Garrison: Goal in each of last two games after 34-game slump

    Garrison now has a goal in each of his last two games after going 34 games without a goal. He picked up an even-strength marker in Monday's shootout loss to Montreal. Do not consider this the moment of resurrection for the once powerful point shooter. Garrison's best-before date has passed, at least from a fantasy perspective. He's on pace for fewer than 15 points this season.

    Lightning's Jason Garrison: One point in last 26 games

    After picking up three points in his first two games, Garrison has just a single assist in the next 26 games. Last season, Garrison had 30 points and a plus-27 rating in 70 games. But his struggles mirror those of his team right now. Garrison's a long way removed from his massive, 16-goal breakout in Florida. His best is probably behind him, at least from a fantasy perspective.

    Tampa Bay Lightning's Jason Garrison Two-goal performance powers win

    Garrison scored twice, including the game winner, in Thursday's overtime win over the Flyers. The winner came on a breakaway in the 3-on-3 overtime period. He's not the typical breakaway type, but his owners will take it. The first goal was his typically heavy, seeing-eye hammer from the blue line that made its way through traffic and eluded starter Steve Mason. Nice outing, but this isn't something you should come to expect.

  • Garrison Powers Bolts To Win With Big Goal

    News: Jason Garrison scored the game-winning goal on the power play and added an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks.
    Analysis: He has a massive shot, but he hadn't shown it much during the regular season -- he had a great year, but had powered home just four snipes. He now plays a much more well-rounded game and that tends to make him relatively ordinary in fantasy circles.
  • Bolts' Garrison Gets Assist In Return

    News: Jason Garrison (upper body) returned to action Thursday in Game 4 against the Red Wings and picked up an assist in 14:14 of ice time.
    Analysis: Tampa eased him back into action and he looked fine. Jason Garrison's presence should provide the Lightning with stability on the back end as they battle to get past Detroit in the first round.
  • Lightning's Garrison Takes Ice For Warmups

    News: Jason Garrison (upper body) is on the ice for pregame warmups ahead of Thursday's Game 4 against the Red Wings, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
    Analysis: Jason Garrison is considered a game-time decision, but he hinted that he should be able to play. Given his participation in warmups, he'll likely be in the lineup for Thursday's game.
  • Bolts' Garrison: Game-Time Call Thursday

    News: Jason Garrison (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 4 against the Red Wings, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
    Analysis: Coach Jon Cooper wouldn't divulge his lineup for Game 4, but for what it's worth, Jason Garrison said he would be "comfortable" playing if needed. It hasn't been determined yet if Garrison will take part in warmups, but if he does, it would more than likely foreshadow his return to the lineup. Should Garrison indeed suit up, it's unclear who he might replace in the lineup, though rookie Nikita Nesterov would seem the most vulnerable after logging the fewest minutes among the Bolts' blueliners in Game 3.
