  • Kucherov is set to undergo hip surgery and will miss the entire 2020-21 regular season, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. Losing Kucherov will be a huge blow for the Lightning's chances of repeating as Stanley Cup champions considering he racked up 33 goals and 52 helpers in 68 games last season. The world-class winger figure to head to long-term injured reserve which will free up $9.5 million worth of cap space for the Bolts. If healthy Steven Stamkos (abdomen) will almost certainly step into Kucherov's spot on the top line.

  • Kucherov (hip) received an injection in his hip last week, reports TSN.ca, and could end up on long-term injury reserve if it fails to respond by next week. Oh boy -- that's not the way the Bolts want to get under the salary cap. Kucherov can only go on the LTIR if he misses 10 games or 24 days, and that's a significant proportion of the season if it comes to pass. The Russian sniper has been remarkably durable in his career, missing just four games over the last three years. Kucherov, his agent and the team are keeping this incredibly quiet, so hopefully that's not a sign of greater concern.

  • Kucherov has sustained a hip injury which puts his status for the start of the 2020-21 campaign in doubt, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. Even with just 56 games this season, Kucherov likely would have pushed for the 30-goal threshold for a sixth consecutive campaign if fully fit. If the winger does miss any time, it could be a significant chunk of the season considering the possibility for a condensed schedule that includes frequent back-to-backs. If Kucherov is unavailable for Opening Night, Steven Stamkos (abdomen) could be an option to move up to the top line if healthy.
