Ryan Callahan (lower-body) says he will be ready for Sunday night's matchup against the Anaheim Ducks.

Ryan Callahan tallied his first goal of the season on Tuesday night.

Oct 25 - 9:34 AM

Ryan Callahan left Saturday's game after blocking a shot, but Lightning coach Jon Cooper said it was just for precautionary reasons.

We'll have to wait to see if there's anything more there, but Callahan is still tentatively projected to be available for the regular season opener. He played in just 18 games last season due to a hip injury, but that seems to be behind him so it would be particularly unfortunate if an unrelated incident forced him to start the campaign on the sidelines.
Oct 1 - 10:33 AM

Ryan Callahan scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Callahan played just 18 games last season because of a serious hip injury. He says he's completely over the injury, but he's clearly not the same player he once was. The 32-year-old had two goals and two assists last season. Callahan doesn't have any fantasy value heading into this season.
Sep 26 - 10:05 PM

Ryan Callahan felt comfortable in his preseason debut on Friday.

It was Callahan's first NHL game since January 7 due to a hip injury. "I didn't think about my hip or anything when I was out there," Callahan said. "It's a big thing for me to get the first game out of my system, blocking shots, taking some hits, giving some hits. It's a good step." He isn't likely to be a significant offensive contributor even if he is healthy, but it'll certainly be a boost for Tampa Bay to have him back after he was limited to 18 contests last season.
Sep 24 - 5:52 AM

Ryan Callahan looked strong in his pre-season debut Friday night.

The rugged winger hadn't played in an NHL game since January 7th due to on-going hip problems that ultimately led to surgery. Callahan was a force in about nine minutes of ice time against the Predators Friday night and will lineup on Tampa's third line once the season starts. He has limited fantasy value in that slot.
Sep 23 - 11:39 AM

Ryan Callahan (hip) will be ready for the start of training camp.

Callahan took part in voluntary workouts with some of his Lightning teammates on Monday. "I'm full go, right from Day One," Callahan said. "It's going to be nice to be able to do a hard training camp this year. It goes without saying this is the most excited I've been in a long, long time going into a season after only playing 18 games last year and feeling the way I do now." He had two goals and two assists in 18 games last season.
Aug 22 - 12:48 PM

Ryan Callahan told reporters Saturday that he is feeling great and that his hip issues are behind him.

In fact, Callahan was very optimistic about his readiness level for next season. "I feel great, no limitations at all," Callahan said. "I think this is going to be the hungriest I've ever been". That said, Callahan remains an injury risk. He is also likely destined for third-line duty which also supresses his fantasy value.
Jul 2 - 10:36 AM

The Lightning haven't asked Ryan Callahan to waive his no-movement clause, so he'll presumably be included in Tampa Bay's list of protected players.

Callahan's no-movement clause forces the Lightning to protect him unless he agrees to waive it in order to make space for someone else on Tampa Bay's list. Vegas might have passed on him even if he was available given that he was limited to just 18 games in 2016-17 due to a hip injury. That being said, Callahan is projected to be available for the beginning of the 2017-18 campaign.
