    Lightning's Jake Dotchin: Shows up for morning skate

    Jake Dotchin (illness) participated in morning skate Thursday, Bryan Burns of the Tampa Bay Lightning's official site reports.It's a safe bet that the two-way defenseman will be fit to play in the evening's home contest against the Senators. His output of six points (two goals, four assists) through 23 games needs to be viewed through the proper lens, as Dotchin's actually working with a robust 7.1 shooting percentage to complement a plus-5 rating over 15:36 of average ice time. Those are quality numbers for a second-year skater learning the nuances of a tough position.

    Lightning's Jake Dotchin: Surprise absence Tuesday

    Jake Dotchin (illness) wasn't on the ice for warmups and won't play in Tuesday's game against the Golden Knights, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Dotchin wasn't in the rotation during Tuesday's morning skate either, so this may have been planned to some extent. He's played just four games since returning from an undisclosed ailment, recording two assists and a plus-4 rating in that span. Slater Koekkoek will likely slot into Dotchin's place.

    Lightning's Jake Dotchin: Doubtful against Avalanche

    Jake Dotchin (undisclosed) is unlikely to suit up for Thursday's tilt versus Colorado.The news that Dotchin probably won't play comes despite the fact that he took part in practice without a non-contact jersey, per Bryan Burns of the Tampa Bay Lightning's official site. When the Ontario native is cleared to return, he will need to be activated off injured reserve, which would also require a corresponding roster move -- likely Jamie McBain heading back to the minors. Dotchin does appear to be making strides in his recovery and should be available sooner rather than later -- perhaps Saturday versus the Jets.

    Lightning's Jake Dotchin: Sporting non-contact jersey

    Jake Dotchin (undisclosed) took part in Monday's practice in a non-contact jersey, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.According to coach Jon Cooper, Dotchin is "still on track (to) make a possible return this week," per Erik Erlendsson of Tampa Bay LightningInsider.com. The blueliner will need to be cleared for contact prior to returning to game action, which probably makes Tuesday's outing versus the Islanders a long shot. Once given the green light -- and activated off injured reserve -- Dotchin figures to bounce Slater Koekkoek from the lineup.

    Lightning's Jake Dotchin: Will miss at least Saturday's game

    Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper hopes to get Jake Dotchin (undisclosed) back in the lineup next week, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.This effectively rules out Dotchin for Saturday's contest against the visiting Sharks, but the playmaking defenseman in his second year is sure to be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's home clash with the Islanders. Self-supported by a 9.5 shooting percentage, which is rather impressive for a rearguard, Dotchin has added two goals and just as many assists through 19 games this season.

    Lightning's Jake Dotchin: Unavailable during road trip

    Jake Dotchin (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup for the Tampa Bay Lightning's upcoming two-game road trip, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.While Dotchin will be sidelined for Tampa Bay's next two outings, he appears to be trending in the right direction and could be ready in time for Saturday's home clash against the Sharks. The defenseman's return would mark the end of a five-game stint on the injury report. Even once cleared to play, the 23-year-old will need to compete with Andrej Sustr for regular minutes.
