    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Unable to return to action

    Victor Hedman (undisclosed) was never able to return to action before the Tampa Bay Lightning were defeated in the playoffs.Hedman suited up in just two of the final eight games of the season due to an undisclosed injury. The Swede will enter the fourth year of his eight-year contract extension he signed in 2016, having produced 12 goals and 54 points this campaign. Following the strong showing, the 28-year-old is up for the coveted Norris Trophy for the third year in a row. Just two years removed from a 72-point showing, Hedman will likely use the offseason to get healthy before readying for a potential bounce-back year in 2019-20.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: No go for Game 4

    Victor Hedman (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 against Columbus.Hedman tried to play through his undisclosed injury during Games 1 and 2, but it clearly affected his play, as he went scoreless while posting a minus-2 rating in back-to-back home losses. Coach Jon Cooper decided to keep the Swedish blueliner out of the lineup for Sunday's Game 3 in hopes it'd give him time to recover ahead of Game 4, but Hedman's obviously still ailing. The reigning Norris Trophy winner will have to hope that his team will be able to steal a win on the road Tuesday to give him an opportunity to return to action Friday for Game 5.

Hedman was forced to miss Game 3 with an undisclosed injury, and could very likely miss Game 4. More information should become available closer to puck drop.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Iffy for Game 3

    Victor Hedman is "banged up" and didn't practice Saturday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.This is the last thing Tampa Bay fans want to see, as the Tampa Bay Lightning can ill afford to lose their best defenseman heading back to Columbus for Game 3 while down two games to none in the series. Confirmation on Hedman's status for Game 3 should surface prior to puck drop, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him labeled a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's contest.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Ready for Game 1

    Victor Hedman (upper body) practiced again Tuesday and indicated afterward that he's feeling fresh ahead of Wednesday's playoff opener against the Blue Jackets, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. He will play against the Blue Jackets in Game 1 on Wednesday, Bryan Burns of the Tampa Bay Lightning's official site reports.Hedman's full participation in practice again Tuesday suggested Hedman would make his return, and coach Jon Cooper confirmed that was the case after the session. While he's had a slightly down year in the form of 54 points over 70 contests, the output still ranks Hedman among the top 15 defensemen in the league. He should be a big piece for Lightning in the playoffs and again in 2019-20.

    Victor Hedman (upper body) was a full participant for Monday's practice and is "looking encouraging" for Wednesday's Game 1 against Columbus, Bryan Burns of the Tampa Bay Lightning's official site reports.Hedman hasn't seen the ice since March 30. The Swede will be an important piece if the Lightning want to win the Stanley Cup, as Hedman produced 54 points in 70 games this campaign. The fact that he's practicing is a positive sign for his possible return Wednesday, but as always, check back later in the week for an official word from the team.

    Lightning's Victor Hedman: Hopeful for playoff return

    Head coach Jon Cooper said Monday that Victor Hedman (upper body) is doubtful to suit up for the rest of the regular season, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.Hedman was knocked out of Saturday's game against Washington, after logging just 7:58 of ice time. Cooper would go on to say the team is hoping for a playoff return for the blueliner, but it's unclear at this point. The possibility of a concussion is also in play, which could be a tricky situation for both the player and team. For the time being, expect Jan Rutta to draw into the lineup in Hedman's stead.
