  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Signs big contract extension with Tampa

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/16) Hedman has signed an eight-year, $63 million contract extension with Tampa Bay, reports TSN.

    The signing of Steven Stamkos allowed the Bolts to ink Hedman. The big defender would have been on the market next season, so this is huge news for the team. Hedman is a beast on the ice and in fantasy, but there is only so much money to pay for all of the pieces on that team, so there may be other changes coming for the Bolts. Hedman scored 10 goals and added 37 assists in 78 games in 2015-16 and projects to be a consistent 50-point man for the next several years.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Could see contract restructured

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/28/16) Hedman is likely to get a contract extension this summer, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Hedman actually won't be an unrestricted free agent until 2017-18, though general manager Steve Yzerman could wind up restructuring his contract before next season since he's due for a raise after dazzling yet again this year. Hedman finished with 47 points in 78 games in the regular season, followed by 14 more in the postseason. As noted in the report, the team's top priority will be re-signing superstar forward Steve Stamkos with Hedman's agent saying they'll practice patience in waiting for a new deal. There are rumblings that Hedman could command around $9 million annually, which is consistent with how much P.K. Subban, defenseman for the Candiens, currently makes.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Piles on two more points in Game 4 on Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/20/16) Hedman collected a pair of assists and skated to a team-high 26:15 of ice time in Friday's 4-3 win over the Penguins in Game 4.

    The beat goes on for the big Swedish defender, who has been all kinds of hot with a whopping 12 points in his last nine games. That gives him a total of 13 points in 14 contests this postseason which equates to 0.93 points per game -- making him certifiably elite by any standard, and even more impressive given his position. At 25 years old, Hedman is in the prime of his career and is illustrating -- as a franchise cornerstone defenseman capable of significantly impacting the outcome of a game -- why he was selected as the second-overall pick in 2009.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Pots a pair in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/16) Hedman scored a pair of goals in Sunday's Game 5 win over the Islanders.

    He opened up the scoring in the first period, then later helped bury the game by connecting on the power play to put the Bolts up by three. Hedman had just one point in the opening round, but he couldn't be contained this series, as the defenseman tallied eight points (four goals, four assists) in the five games against the Islanders, so he'll look to carry over that momentum into the Eastern Conference Final.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Records three points in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/16) Hedman had a goal and two assists -- including on Brian Boyle's overtime game-winner -- in Tuesday's Game 3 5-4 victory over the Islanders.

    The Swedish defenseman has been on fire in the series, racking up six points through the first three games. He also fired six shots on goal Tuesday, giving him 15 in the last three games. Hedman's 30:15 of ice time in Game 3 marked his highest total of the season and it was the second time he registered over 30 minutes during the postseason.
