Player News
  • Budaj (leg) is expected to require 6-to-8 weeks to recover from his Dec. 29 injury, meaning his return will slot in around mid-February, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Budaj was originally handed a week-to-week label, but now the timeline has been clarified. Louis Domingue will continue to back up Andrei Vasilevskiy in his stead. Even when healthy, Budaj has played poorly this season in his minimal role, posting a 3.80 GAA and .878 save percentage over seven games.

  • Budaj is considered week-to-week after sustaining a leg injury Friday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Budaj -- who has already been placed on injured reserve -- will be replaced by Louis Domingue in the backup role. Considering how heavily the Lightning have relied on starter Andrei Vasilevskiy, the veteran Budaj probably won't miss that many games that he otherwise would have started.

  • Budaj will be out indefinitely with his lower-body injury. Budaj favored his left leg after getting plowed over in the cage by Flyers forward Scott Laughton on Friday night, but the team is using the more nebulous lower-body label in reference to the backup goalie's ailment. Either way, Budaj is on injured reserve with no clear timeline for a return, and the Bolts have called up Louis Domingue to serve as an emergency goalie behind Andrei Vasilevskiy.

  • Lightning's Peter Budaj: Stops 29 in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Budaj made 29 saves on 33 shots before exiting with a leg injury in the third period of a 5-3 loss to Philadelphia on Friday. Things weren't going well for Budaj before the injury, as he'd conceded 16 goals in his past four starts. With Lightning coach Jon Cooper saying postgame that the team expects to call up a goaltender to replace him and Tampa about to travel for a five-game road swing, it's a reasonable guess that he stays sidelined until the Bolts return home on Jan. 9. Even if he returns before then, he's not all that useful as even a spot starter on your roster.

  • Lightning's Peter Budaj: Plays horribly in victory
    By RotoWire Staff

    Budaj allowed five goals on 37 shots against the Avalanche, but the good news is that was enough to nab a 6-5 win Saturday night. The 35-year-old received just his sixth start Saturday, and it went about as well as his first five. The Lightning even spotted him a 4-0 lead, but Budaj yielded four third-period goals to make things interesting. Budaj came into the night 2-2-1 with an .881 save percentage and 3.40 GAA, and those totals got even worse despite a victory. Budaj played very well in place of an injured Jonathan Quick last season for the Kings, but since joining the Lightning around the 2017 trade deadline, he owns an. 886 save percentage in 13 appearances.
