Lightning's Victor Hedman: Points keep piling up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman scored and added two assists in Saturday's 7-1 victory over the Sharks. He also finished plus-3.

The two helpers came on the power play. Hedman has points in five-straight games and 27 in 25 games. His offensive pace is at a career high, but his plus-minus just broke even Saturday. That's a far cry from Hedman's plus-24 last season or plus-32 the year before. We're sure that category will pick up soon. Enjoy the output regardless.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Opens scoring in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman scored a goal on two shots and logged a team-leading 23:41 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win versus Nashville.

Hedman opened the scoring eight minutes into the game with his fifth goal of the season. The big defenseman now has points in three straight games and in 10 of his last 12. He's racked up three goals and 14 points in that latter stretch and is averaging exactly one point per game for the season.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Takes game up a notch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman set up two goals Saturday in a 6-2 victory over the Ducks.

His point streak now stands at seven games and 11 points (two goals, nine assists). Hedman has been the model of consistency so far this season -- he's only been held off the scoresheet twice in 18 games. But it's important to note that his production has taken a big jump in the last week-and-a-half. Hedman has three multi-point games in his last five. Use him well.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Rolling since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Blues.

Since returning from a two-game absence, Hedman has found the scoresheet eight times in five games and is now up to 17 points through 16 games. The towering Swedish defenseman appears to be back to full health and should continue churning out fantasy fruit, provided Hedman does not find himself back on the shelf with an injury.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Second multi-point game in row
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman tallied a goal and an assist Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Jets.

He's riding a four-game point streak that includes two goals and five assists. Hedman hadn't put up a multi-point game this season until Thursday night and now he has two in a row. This Norris-worthy defender is warming up. That's good for every fantasy owner.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Playing in Global Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (lower body) will be in the lineup against Buffalo on Friday in his native Sweden.

Hedman returns following a two-game stint on the shelf due to his lower-body issue. The blueliner has yet to put together a multipoint effort this season but still has racked up nine points in 11 contests. In addition to eating up big minutes at even strength, Hedman figures to be back on the top power-play unit Friday.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (lower body) skated with the Lightning during Tuesday's practice in Stockholm, Diana C. Nearhos of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Hedman missed the first two of the Bolts' practices in Sweden while he recovers from the lower-body injury that sidelined him for the team's previous two games, but his presence on the ice Tuesday bodes well for his chances of returning from injured reserve ahead of Friday's Global Series matchup with the Sabres in his native country. Per Caley Chelios of the Lightning's official site, Hedman skated on the Bolts' top defensive pairing alongside Kevin Shattenkirk.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Hoping to play in Global Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (lower body) is optimistic that he'll be ready for the Lightning's Global Series matchups with Buffalo in his native Sweden next week, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Hedman's absence for the two games in Sweden would no doubt be a huge disappointment to the local fans, as well as for fantasy owners who would like to get the world-class blueliner back into their lineups. The 28-year-old has nine points to start the season and has only failed to register a point in two games. At this pace, Hedman is a near lock for a fourth consecutive 50-plus point campaign.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

The Lightning are dealing with multiple injuries, so they called up three players from AHL Syracuse. In order to free up roster space, both Hedman and Patrick Maroon (upper body) were placed on IR. Hedman will miss at least two games, as he won't be eligible to play until Nov. 8 against the Sabres.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Ruled out against Devils
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (lower body) won't suit up for Wednesday's matchup against the Devils, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Hedman exited Tuesday's loss to the Rangers after just 6:37 of ice time and didn't return, and now he'll miss his first game of the year. Ryan McDonagh figures to be the Lightning's top left-handed defenseman in this contest while either Jan Rutta or Luke Schenn should fill into the bottom pairing.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: In doubt Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (lower body) is considered day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's matchup with New Jersey, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

While it's never good timing for an injury, Hedman leaving the first game of a back-to-back doesn't provide a lot of time for him to return to the lineup. While the team has yet to make an official announcement on the blueliner's status, he should be considered questionable at best. If Hedman is unable to give it a go, Jan Rutta figures to slot into the lineup for the first time this season, while Mikhail Sergachev would likely see an uptick in ice time.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Won't return to Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman suffered a lower-body injury during Tuesday's game against the Rangers and won't return, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear what caused Hedman's exit, but it's certainly concerning he was ruled out for the evening before the midway point of the game. His status for Wednesday's matchup against the Devils is uncertain.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Scores game-winner on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman scored a power-play goal on three shots and logged a team-high 23:22 in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Penguins.

Hedman broke a 2-2 deadlock with his power-play goal with only 57 seconds left in regulation. It was his second straight game with a goal after going the first seven contests without one. Despite the low goal output, Hedman has managed to reach the scoresheet in eight of nine games this season and leads Tampa Bay defensemen with eight points.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Fight night at home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman scored his first goal of the season Saturday in a 6-2 home loss to Colorado.

He also picked up a fighting major. Hedman has seven points in eight games so far and sits third in team scoring behind Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov. The Bolts have been up and down this season -- they sit 10th in goals scored after being number one by a significant margin last season. Hedman's production is actually remarkable, considering the team's quiet offence.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Jon Cooper, Hedman (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Panthers, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Hedman was labeled day-to-day with an undisclosed issue by Cooper on Monday, but he was never in serious danger of missing Thursday's contest. The 28-year-old Swede is expected to skate on Tampa Bay's second pairing and first power-play unit against Florida.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Status uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, though coach Jon Cooper told reporters he was "hopeful" the blueliner would be available for Opening Night versus Florida on Thursday, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Missing Hedman for Opening Night would certainly hinder the club's scoring options from the blue line. Injuries limited the 28-year-old to 70 games last season, but he still managed to reach the 50-point mark for a third consecutive year. If the Swede can stay healthy, he should be in the mix for the Norris Trophy at the end of the year.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Cleared for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (undisclosed) told's David Satriano that he's 100 percent healthy ahead of Tampa Bay's training camp Thursday.

Hedman missed the Lightning's last four regular-season contests and the final two games of his team's first-round loss to the Blue Jackets due to an undisclosed injury last year, but he's apparently been partaking in his normal training regimen this summer and feels fully recovered ahead of September's training camp. The 28-year-old Swede, who was a finalist for the Norris Trophy for a third consecutive campaign in 2018-19, will remain an elite fantasy option in 2019-20, and shouldn't have any trouble posting double-digit goals and 40-plus assists for a fourth straight season if he's able to avoid the injury bug.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: Unable to return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (undisclosed) was never able to return to action before the 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: Norris finalist once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hedman (undisclosed) was announced as a finalist for the 2018-19 Norris Trophy on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

The 28-year-old Swede has now been a Norris finalist for three straight seasons, winning the coveted award last year. Hedman's campaign ended in disappointing fashion though, as Tampa Bay was swept in the first round while he watched Games 3 and 4 from the press box with an injury. He finished the regular season with 12 goals and 54 points in 70 contests.

Lightning's Victor Hedman: No go for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
