Lightning's Hedman out 3-to-6 weeks with lower-body injury

Lightning's Hedman out 3-to-6 weeks with lower-body injury”

Tampa Bay Lightning All-Star defenseman Victor Hedman will miss three to six weeks with a lower-body injury, the team announced Friday.

That puts Hedman's return in the February 2-23 window, which would mean missing anywhere from seven to 17 games. He can help dictate a lot of the play in how we're doing things, but it's not like we haven't lost him before. I guess the big worry would be if it's long term, but, again, it's hard to say... In Hedman's absence, Mikhail Sergachev's role will likely increase, per the Tampa Bay Times.

Hedman, who picked up the injury in the second period of Thursday's loss to Calgary, has been a rock for the Lightning this season.

Hedman has been one of the top defensemen in the National Hockey League this season, with six goals and 33 points in 44 games.

Stamkos, who missed 65 games last season with a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee, said Thursday that Hedman's skill set can not be replaced in the lineup.

Hedman was selected to play in the 2018 NHL All-Star game to be held here in Tampa.
