Callahan scored once and added two helpers. Playing with Steven Stamkos has helped the gritty winger start fast, with five goals and nine points in nine games. We could be looking at Callahan topping his career-high 54 points from 2011-12, so long as Callahan stays healthy and in the lineup. Tyler Johnson scored twice, with J.T. Brown (goal, two assists), Anton Stralman (goal) and Brian Boyle (goal) potting the other markers. Jonathan Drouin got two assists as well.
Nov 8 - 9:58 PM

Ryan Callahan has been cleared to return to action Saturday night against the Capitals.

He had missed the last 10 days due to a lower-body injury. Activate Callahan immediately as he was skating in Saturday morning's scrimmage on the top line alongside Steven Stamkos and Valteri Filppula on what could be a dominating unit.
Nov 1 - 11:40 AM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) has declared himself ready to return to the Lightning's lineup.

"I'm good to go," Callahan said on Friday. "That's the goal, as long as nothing shows up tomorrow, something that's bugging me from today's skate. But I felt really good today so don't see why not." Tampa Bay has already sent Cedric Paquette to the minors, so the stage is set for Callahan to rejoin the Lightning. He has three goals and five points in six games in 2014-15.
Oct 31 - 6:04 PM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) hasn't been ruled out of playing Thursday, but he said it's more realistic that his return could come on Saturday.

He participated in a full practice on Wednesday and remained on the ice for a little while afterward. "We've been hammering it with treatment and rehab, and it's responded well," Callahan said. "It's improved tremendously." He has been sidelined since Oct. 20.
Oct 30 - 11:38 AM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) skated on his own before joining his teammates for parts of Tuesday's practice.

He took part in some drills in a limited capacity. Coach Jon Cooper said Callahan might be available to play in Saturday's game against Washington, so it's unlikely that he'll be ready for Thursday's game versus Philadelphia. Callahan is listed as day-to-day.
Oct 29 - 12:40 PM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) has been upgraded to day-to-day.

Callahan was previously regarded as week-to-week. He hasn't played since Oct. 20th.
Oct 28 - 12:25 PM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Callahan injured himself Monday against the Oilers. He is being declared week-to-week at this point. The 29-year-old is an effective, physical player when he’s in the lineup. The problem is, he’s rarely healthy for a full season. Callahan has five points in six games in 2014-15.
Oct 25 - 8:12 PM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) was on the ice Friday.

Callahan thinks he's making progress, but he didn't engage in starts/stops during his skate. He isn't expected to return Friday or Saturday.
Oct 24 - 2:32 PM

Ryan Callahan (lower body) isn't expected to play on Friday or Saturday.

Saturday's match will wrap up the Lightning's five-game road trip. The team should know about Callahan's status when they return. He suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's game against Edmonton.
Oct 23 - 3:15 PM

Ryan Callahan exited Monday's game against Edmonton because of a lower-body injury.

He appeared to be favoring his leg when he left late in the second period and he didn't return. Callahan is unlikely to play Tuesday night in Calgary, according to coach Jon Cooper.
Oct 21 - 10:27 AM

The Lightning have shuffled their lines during Saturday morning's skate.

Ryan Callahan was skating alongside Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat instead of Tyler Johnson. Johnson skated with Valteri Filppula and Alex Killorn. If this is the way the Bolts line up against the Sens Saturday night, it goes without saying Callahan is a must start.
Oct 11 - 11:13 AM

Ryan Callahan is finally starting to feel at home in Tampa Bay and should be a leader this season.

Callahan inked the six year deal with the Lightning in the offseason after getting traded in a blockbuster trade-deadline deal involving Martin St. Louis. "You definitely feel a lot more comfortable," Callahan said. "It's tough to come in and be vocal and assert your leadership on a group when you come in (March). I feel a lot more comfortable in the room, with the coaching staff and hopefully that translates with my play." Callahan had 17 goals and 19 assists in 65 games played last season.
