Victor Hedman (finger) should be considered questionable for Saturday's game.

Hedman recently got the green light to participate in contact drills. He's a big part of the Lightning, but they've been able to excel without him so there shouldn't be any urgency on their part to attempt to rush him back.

Victor Hedman (finger) received clearance to take part in contact drills.

He was a regular practice jersey during Wednesday's optional morning skate. "If he's in a regular jersey, he's very, very close," associate coach Rick Bowness said. "If he's still in a red jersey, you are still looking at a few more days, but he's got to be very close at this point." He could be back next week, but he hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's match against Ottawa.

Victor Hedman (fractured finger) took part in Thursday's morning skate.

He said "it felt pretty good" and he was happy that he was able to take some shots for the first time. "At least another week, week-and-a-half to two weeks," Hedman said referring to his timetable. "I'm very excited about that, but moving forward it's just going to be fun to skate with the team and participate in the drills I can and keep working hard off the ice to stay in shape. It's been a tough four weeks, but the team has been playing well, so that makes it easier."

Hedman was firing on all cylinders before he got injured, with three goals and seven points in five games.
