Victor Hedman will indeed play Saturday night against Colorado as Matt Carle, JT Brown and Luke Witkowski are all scratched.

Victor Hedman will almost certainly play against the Avalanche Saturday night.

He seems to have recovered from a lower-body injury that kept him out of action this week. Activate Hedman immediately.

Victor Hedman (lower body) hopes to return on Saturday night.

He's optimistic that he'll be back before the All-Star break after taking part in Friday's practice. In 26 games this season, Hedman has five goals and 20 points. He suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's game against Philadelphia.

Victor Hedman (lower body) didn't practice Thursday.

It isn't clear if he'll be able to play before the All-Star break, but it's probably doubtful that will happen. Hedman is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Victor Hedman (lower body) will not be available on Tuesday.

Hedman was hurt during Monday's contest. He might be back before the All-Star break though. Nikita Nesterov will probably come out of the press box as a result of Hedman's injury.
Jan 13 - 1:01 PM

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper admitted that there's good chance Victor Hedman and Tyler Johnson won't be available on Tuesday.

Both players suffered lower body injuries on Monday's loss to Philadelphia. "There’s a chance that both of them might not play tomorrow," said Cooper. "There’s a good chance of that." The Lightning travel to Boston to take on the Bruins on Tuesday. Losing either player for a significant amount of time would be a serious blow for Tampa Bay.

Updating a previous item, Victor Hedman won't return to Monday's game against Philadelphia.

Hedman suffered a lower body injury at some point in the first period. The 24-year-old already missed 18 games earlier this season because of a finger injury. With Radko Gudas already lost for the season, the Lightning can't afford to lose Hedman for a long period of time.
Jan 12 - 9:20 PM

Victor Hedman left Monday's game against Philadelphia.

It's unclear why Hedman left the game. The Lightning defenseman didn't take a single shift in the second period. Even if the injury isn't significant, it's unlikely we'll see Hedman return tonight because the Lightning are being blown out, 7-2. We'll keep you updated on Hedman's situation.

Victor Hedman had a part in all three Lightning goals in Tuesday's 5-3 defeat at the hands of the Capitals.

Hedman's three assists bring his point total to an incredible 13 in 11 games this year. If not for an untimely injury, we might be discussing him as the Norris Trophy favorite at this point in the campaign. Steve Stamkos, Brian Boyle and Valtteri Filppula all scored goals for Tampa in the losing effort.
