Ryan Callahan (hip) will be sidelined for at least another four weeks.

At this point the question isn't just about when Callahan will return, but if he'll be back at all this season. Callahan had surgery on his hip in June and has been limited to just 18 games in 2016-17 due to ongoing issues with it. If there doesn't appear to be much progress in the next few weeks, it's possible that Tampa Bay will put him on the long-term injured reserve list, shutting him down and potentially using the saved cap space during the trade deadline.

Ryan Callahan (hip) isn't expected to be available to Tampa Bay until the end of January, at the earliest.

The veteran forward hasn't played since Jan. 7th, and he isn't traveling with the team on their six-game road trip. The trip ends on the 26th, and then Tampa will have their five-day bye week before finishing January with a game against the Bruins on the 31st.
Jan 15 - 7:40 PM

The Tampa Bay Lightning are concerned about Ryan Callahan's health.

Callahan plays a physical style, so it's normal that he gets banged up, but he's now been forced to sit out three different stints this season. "There's lots of concern," coach Jon Cooper said. "It's tough. … Let's move our team aside; it's Callahan. Everybody knows who follows our team what a gamer he is, his passion to play and to help our team, especially when things haven't gone as well as we'd have hoped. Callahan missed the first eight games of the year because of off-season hip surgery. He returned but missed more time because of the hip and he's now out with a lower-body injury.

Jan 4 - 5:10 PM
