Hedman Helps Out In Tampa Bay Win

News: Victor Hedman earned an assist and had three shots on goal in Thursday's Game 4 victory over the Red Wings.
Analysis: Victor Hedman's helper came on Tyler Johnson's game-winning goal, as the skilled defenseman led a 3-on-1 rush on the right side of the ice, before sliding the puck off Mrazek and into the waiting stick of an opportunistic Johnson. The goal capped an impressive comeback for the Bolts -- who were down 2-0 with less than six minutes to play -- and gave Hedman his second point of the series.

Hedman Returns To Bolts' Lineup, Gets Assist

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) returned to action Thursday against the Devils. He picked up a power-play assist in 22:53 of action.
Analysis: He also finished minus-1 on the night. He should be good for the postseason and is a worthy activation for those of you vying for a strong finish in daily leagues. The Bolts have one more game (Saturday).

Lightning's Hedman Set To Return

News: Coach Jon Cooper indicated that Victor Hedman (lower body) is slated to play Thursday against New Jersey, NHL.com's Bryan Burns reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman, who last suited up on March 30, checks back into the Tampa Bay lineup with 37 points in 57 games. Prior to being sidelined, Hedman had gone five games without notching a point.

Bolts' Hedman Practices Again Wednesday

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) practiced with the Lightning again Wednesday, NHL.com's Bryan Burns reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman was on the ice for the second consecutive day with team without a no-contact jersey. He looked to be a full participant, as he skated on the top pairing next to Matt Carle. Though coach Jon Cooper hasn't confirmed as much yet, Hedman certainly looks to be on track to play Thursday against the Devils.

Lightning's Hedman Targets Thursday Return

News: Victor Hedman (lower-body injury) practiced Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman, who did not sport a no-contact jersey Tuesday, is slated to practice again Wednesday in the hopes of playing Thursday against New Jersey. "I felt good," Hedman said after practice Tuesday. "Hopefully it's going to react good, too. I want to get in and play as soon as I can. Hopefully that's Thursday."

Bolts' Hedman Aiming To Return Next Thursday

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) said after Saturday's morning skate that he hopes to return to the lineup for next Thursday's game against the Devils, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman didn't take the ice Saturday until after the team's healthy regulars had departed, but he hopes to join the squad for practice beginning Tuesday. The blueliner noted after his rigorous skating session that it was the best he's felt since sustaining the injury earlier in the week against the Canadiens. Some bad luck on the injury front has ruined what might have been a Norris Trophy-worthy season for Hedman, who has accumulated 10 goals, 37 points, and a plus-12 rating over 57 games.

Bolts' Hedman Skates Friday

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) skated in full gear during Friday's optional practice, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Lightning appear to have already ruled out Victor Hedman for Saturday's game against the Panthers, but it's nonetheless encouraging to see him get in a skate. After Saturday's game, the Lightning will have a four-day break in their schedule, which may afford the blueliner enough practice time to demonstrate that he's healthy and ready to play again.

Bolts' Hedman Likely To Miss Next Two

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Senators, and isn't expected to play Saturday against the Panthers, either, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman hasn't been able to skate since leaving Monday's game against the Canadiens with the lower-body injury. The Lightning originally listed him as day-to-day after reviewing his situation, and while Hedman doesn't appear in danger of missing any playoff action just yet, his return might not come until the final two games of the regular season. This late in the fantasy playoffs, those owners waiting on Hedman's return are probably best served cutting bait with the blueliner in favor of a healthier lineup option.

Bolts' Hedman Won't Play Tuesday

News: Coach Jon Cooper confirmed Victor Hedman (lower body) will miss Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman is still being listed as day-to-day and could still play in the remaining two games of the Lightning's three-game road trip, which will take the team to Ottawa on Thursday. Considering that the blueliner has dealt with a multitude of injuries this season, the Lightning are likely just relieved that his latest setback doesn't appear to put his availability for the postseason in danger. AHL call-up Slater Koekkoek will fill in for Hedman on Tuesday.

Lightning's Hedman Day-To-Day

News: Victor Hedman is officially listed as day-to-day by the Lightning with a lower-body injury, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: With Victor Hedman looking questionable at best for Tuesday's game against the Leafs, the Lightning have recalled fellow blueliner Slater Koekkoek from AHL Syracuse.

Lightning's Hedman Questionable For Tuesday

News: Victor Hedman suffered an undisclosed injury in Monday's game against the Canadiens and is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's not clear what type of setback Victor Hedman is dealing with, but he was only able to take one shift in the third period before leaving the Bolts' bench. The Lightning likely don't know the full extent of Hedman's injury yet, but the team figures to pass along further information on the blueliner's status sometime shortly before Tuesday's contest. The team is already without the services of three rearguards in Jason Garrison, Andrej Sustr, and Braydon Coburn, so the potential loss of Hedman, the Bolts' top defenseman, could prove crippling to their depth.

Bolts' Hedman Puts Up Two Assists

News: Victor Hedman recorded his second straight multi-point game Friday, logging two assists in a win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: The beat goes on for Victor Hedman, who now has 37 points in 52 games on the season. He's piled up 12 points in his last 14 games and is playing a key role for a Lightning team that has suffered just one regulation loss in their eight games. With a plus-13 rating and 40 PIM, the solid all-around fantasy option should be rolled out with confidence every game.

Bolts' Hedman: Game-Winning Goal Plus Assist

News: Victor Hedman scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Monday's 4-2 victory over the Canadiens.
Analysis: He now has double-digit goals (10) and 35 points overall in just 51 games -- that's a pace similar to his career mark from last season. He is likely a mid-50s (or slightly better) player going forward, so start planning your draft next year. This year? Activate him and let it ride.

Bolts' Hedman On Three-Game Streak

News: Victor Hedman scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Stars. He has four points (two goals, two assists) on his current three-game point streak.
Analysis: He has 33 points in 47 games despite missing considerable time to injury. That pace would put him in line for a new career point total if he'd be healthy all season long. He'll vie for a Norris one of these days and you'll want him to be all yours when he does. #keepergold

Bolts' Hedman Breaks Goal Slump

News: Victor Hedman scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Sabres, ending a 10-game goalless skid.
Analysis: Victor Hedman did stay reasonably productive over those 10 games, picking up five assists. When healthy, he's been one of the game's premier assets on the blue line this year, and he seems poised to finish strong.

Bolts' Hedman Looks Set To Play Friday

News: Victor Hedman (undisclosed) is on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll be good to go for Friday's game against the Blackhawks, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Though coach Jon Cooper termed Victor Hedman as a game-time decision, but there was never much doubt in the blueliner's availability after he confirmed that he would play following the Bolts' morning skate. Hedman doesn't look to be in danger of facing any limitations Friday, so his fantasy owners should feel comfortable with keeping him active.

Bolts' Hedman Expected To Play Friday

News: Though coach Jon Cooper labeled Victor Hedman (undisclosed) as a game-time decision for Friday's tilt with the Blackhawks, it's expected that the blueliner will play, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman was a full participant in the Bolts' morning skate, so his fantasy owners can probably feel comfortable inserting him into their lineup. His availability will officially be confirmed when pregame warmups commence a half hour prior to the 7:30 ET puck drop.

Lightning's Hedman Skates Friday Morning

News: Victor Hedman (undisclosed) participated in morning skate, ahead of Friday's game against the Blackhawks, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman left Thursday's practice early, but it appears the issue isn't overly serious. He can still be considered questionable for Friday's game.

Bolts' Hedman Dinged Up In Practice

News: Victor Hedman left Thursday's practice early with an undisclosed injury, but is still expected to play Friday against the Blackhawks, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: It's not clear what transpired during the practice that resulted in the injury, but coach Jon Cooper suggested afterward that Victor Hedman's removal was just precautionary. Assuming he's able to get back on the ice for morning skate on Friday, Hedman should be available for his usual minutes in the game later that evening.

Points Trickling In For Bolts' Hedman

News: Victor Hedman notched an assist in Sunday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: Since busting out with seven points in his first three games this season, Victor Hedman's production has fallen back to earth a bit, with hand and lower-body injuries presenting setbacks along the way. Even so, he's managed to put up 28 points over 42 games -- including three in his last four contests -- to go along with a strong plus-12 rating. Hedman won't come close to reaching last season's career-best 55-point total, but his current outputs keep him among the upper tier of fantasy blueliners.

Bolts' Hedman Finds Twine, Gets Four PIM

News: Victor Hedman netted his sixth goal of the season and picked up four PIM in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Victor Hedman's scoring pace has dipped considerably since the early part of January, as he entered Thursday's contest with only two assists over his last nine games. That minor downturn in offense shouldn't deter fantasy owners from keeping Hedman active. If not for a handful of injuries this season, Hedman would likely rank near the top of the league in blue line scoring.

Bolts' Hedman:Two Helpers And Plus-3

News: Victor Hedman picked up two assists and finished plus-3 in Tuesday's win over the Canucks.
Analysis: The big man has 22 points in 28 games and he's plus-11, too. His value just keeps climbing.

Bolts' Hedman (Lower Body) Returns To Action

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) returned to action Saturday and finished minus-1 with five shots on net and a minor penalty in 24:06 of action.
Analysis: Get him back in there. He's good to go.

Lightning's Hedman (Lower Body) Will Play Saturday

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) is on the ice for warmups against the Avalanche on Saturday and is expected to play, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: This outcome was expected as Victor Hedman was in line to play leading up to Saturday's warmups. He'll be snapping a two-game streak off the ice but managed to have a successful practice skate Friday which bodes well for his performance Saturday.

Bolts' Hedman (Lower Body) Likely To Play Saturday

News: Victor Hedman (lower body) is officially being listed as a game-time decision, but is fully expected to play Saturday against the Avalanche, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Victor Hedman resumed practicing with full contact Friday and didn't seem to show any limitations during Saturday's morning skate, which will likely be enough for the team's training staff to give the go-ahead for his return. The blueliner has missed 20 games due to injury this season, but is still tied for the team lead in defenseman scoring with 20 points in 26 games.
