Hedman (undisclosed) is expected to be fully fit when the NHL resumes Phase 2 workouts, per Joe Smith of The Athletic. Prior to getting hurt and the league going on hiatus, Hedman racked up 13 points in his previous 15 contests. With the announcement that the NHL will jump straight into the playoffs, Hedman will close out the regular season with 55 points, marking the fourth straight year in which he reached the 50-point threshold. Given his role with the Lightning's No. 1 power-play unit, Hedman figures to be a top-end fantasy option in DFS contests and playoff pools.
Hedman (undisclosed) beat out John Carlson for best defenseman in the NHLPA player pool. Hedman received 37.88 percent of the vote followed by Carlson (21.35) and Roman Josi (9.04). Prior to the shutdown, the 28-year-old Hedman missed two games due to an undisclosed injury but figures to be available should the season pick back up.
Hedman (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Hedman will miss a second straight game Tuesday, but he's still considered day-to-day with his undisclosed issue, so he should be ready to return sooner rather than later. Another update on the 29-year-old Swede's status should surface prior to Thursday's matchup with Philadelphia.
Hedman (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Wings, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. Hedman will miss Sunday's game after leaving Saturday's game against the Bruins with an undisclosed issue. The specifics around the defenseman's injury remain unclear; however the team did announce that Hedman is considered day-to-day. Despite the Swede sitting out, the team did get good news with fellow defenseman Ryan McDonagh (lower body) set to return to the lineup after almost a month absence. Hedman's next chance to suit up is in Tuesday's game against Toronto.
Hedman (undisclosed) played only 4:36 during Saturday's game against the Bruins, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. Hedman was never officially ruled out for the game and remained on the bench, but he wasn't able to get much playing time. Per Smith, Hedman will be re-evaluated in the coming days. It may be too quick a turnaround for the Swedish defenseman to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the Red Wings. If he can't go, Luke Schenn will likely enter the lineup.
