Free Agent Salo Eyeing Return

News: Sami Salo (wrist) is almost fully recovered from his recent surgery, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner is still a free agent, but he is reportedly receiving interest from multiple teams now that he's almost healthy. He's still interested in returning to the NHL, so keep an eye out for a team to sign him in the coming weeks.

Free Agent Salo Undergoes Wrist Surgery

News: Sami Salo underwent wrist surgery recently, Sportsnet's Dan Murphy reports.
Analysis: Considering the lengthy recovery timetable of the procedure, as well as his age (40), Sami Salo has more than likely chosen to hang up his skates for good. Salo, who suited up in 71 games in 2013-14, has spent 15 seasons in the NHL with the Senators, Canucks and Lightning, accumulating 339 points in 878 career games.

Bolts' Salo To Miss Second Straight Game

News: Sami Salo (upper body) will not be available for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Canadiens, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: In addition to Sami Salo, the Bolts will also be without Radko Gudas on defense, after he evidently suffered a left knee injury Sunday. The absence of both players could leave goalie Anders Lindback in a world of trouble as the Lightning attempt to stave off elimination.

Lightning's Salo Out For Sunday's Game

News: Sami Salo (upper body) will miss Sunday's game against the Canadiens, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Sami Salo will thus take a seat Sunday after having been held without a point over the first two games of the Lightning's series against Montreal.

Bolts' Salo Returns Sunday

News: Sami Salo (upper body) returned to the ice for Sunday's game against the Capitals, seeing 16:01 of ice time in the victory.
Analysis: Sami Salo missed the previous two games with the upper-body injury, but Sunday's return would suggest he'll be safe to suit up when the Bolts begin postseason play Wednesday. He finished the regular season with 17 points, 57 hits and 66 blocked shots in 71 games.

Lightning's Salo To Sit Out Friday

News: Sami Salo (upper body) will not play in Friday's game against the Blue Jackets, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Sami Salo was able to take part in Friday's morning skate, but after sitting out Thursday's game, he will miss his second straight contest Friday. It remains to be seen if he will play in Sunday's regular season finale, but he should be good to go when the playoffs begin next week.

Bolts' Salo Likely Out Thursday

News: Sami Salo (upper body) appears unlikely to play Thursday against the Flyers, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Coach Jon Cooper downplayed the severity of Sami Salo's injury, but said the blueliner would likely need a day off to recover. As long as Salo is healthy for the playoffs, that's probably all that matters to the Lightning at this point in the regular season.

Sami Salo

Bolts' Salo Has Upper Body Injury

News: Sami Salo is day-to-day with an upper body injury, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: The blueliner has just four goals and 13 assists through 70 games this season, so his absence shouldn't affect too many lineups if he can't play Thursday against the Flyers.

Bolts' Salo: Five Points In Last 10 Games

News: Sami Salo scored his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Analysis: Go figure -- he actually has five points, including two goals, in his last 10 games. He's on the downside (and slide) of a 15-season career, but he remains valuable in a limited role ... at least on the ice.

Two Points For Tampa's Salo

News: Sami Salo collected two power-play assists and went plus-1 in Thursday's 5-4 win over Ottawa.
Analysis: The assists were both of the secondary variety, but when they come on the man advantage, no fantasy owners will complain. Sami Salo's been warm lately, with four points and a plus-3 in his last five games.

Bolts' Salo Says He'll Play Thursday

News: Sami Salo (lower body) will draw back into the lineup Thursday vs. the Panthers, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Sami Salo was forced to exit Tuesday's game against the Coyotes after logging just three minutes of ice time, but he was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice and doesn't look like he'll miss any further action. Injuries have plagued the 39-year-old throughout his lengthy career, but Tuesday's injury qualifies as only a minor bump.

Bolts' Salo In For Practice

News: Sami Salo (lower body) took part in Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Sami Salo left Tuesday's loss to the Coyotes with the injury, but his presence on the ice Wednesday suggests his ailment isn't too serious. Fellow injured blueliner Radko Gudas also practiced Wednesday, so there would seem to be a decent chance that the Bolts will have one or both of those players available for Thursday's tilt with the Panthers.

Bolts' Salo Nursing Undisclosed Injury

News: Sami Salo left Monday's game against the Coyotes with an undisclosed injury, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Though it's not certain what type of injury is in play for Sami Salo, it occurred when he attempted to block a shot on just his third shift of the game. He ended up with only 3:05 TOI as a result, and his status is seemingly in question for Thursday's game vs. the Panthers.

Tampa's Salo: Two Assists In Win

News: Sami Salo had two assists in a win Saturday over Detroit. It's his first multi-point game since Oct. 10.
Analysis: His game now is more about angles and own-zone control, and less about points. His fantasy value is limited in his current role and stage of his career. But his leadership on the back end helps stabilize some of the younger defenders.

Bolts' Salo Will Play Thursday

News: Coach Jon Cooper said that Sami Salo (ankle) will play Thursday vs. the Islanders, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Sami Salo apparently checked out fine during morning skate and will be back in the lineup after missing the last two games. Andrej Sustr heads to the press box to make room for Salo on defense.

Bolts' Salo Present For Morning Skate

News: Sami Salo (ankle) took part in Thursday's morning skate, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Sami Salo received news earlier this week that the ankle injury he suffered Saturday was nothing more than a bruise, so he could be ready to go after sitting out the last two games. If he skated without an issues in the morning, he'll more than likely be included in Thursday's lineup.

Bolts' Salo Considered Day-To-Day

News: Sami Salo (ankle) is considered day-to-day after tests revealed no structural damage to his left ankle, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: It appears that Sami Salo is only nursing a bruise, but it will be enough to keep him out of the lineup Monday against the Blue Jackets, as he wasn't a participant at morning skate. Even so, it looks as though he'll avoid landing on injured reserve and probably won't miss many games beyond Monday's tilt.

Bolts' Salo Spotted With Crutches After Game

News: Sami Salo, who left Saturday's game with a lower-body injury, was seen using crutches in the locker room after the game.
Analysis: It's possible that Sami Salo was just using the crutches as a precautionary measure, but it seems likely the defenseman could miss some time after taking a puck off his left ankle Saturday. The Bolts will see how he feels heading into next week before determining when he might return to action.

Bolts' Salo Departs With Lower-Body Injury

News: Sami Salo left Saturday's game vs. the Flyers with a lower-body injury, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: It looked like a leg injury for defenseman, as Sami Salo didn't appear to be putting any weight on the limb after leaving the ice. No stranger to injuries over his long career, Salo could be forced to miss some action due to his latest ailment, though that probably won't be determined until he's evaluated over the next day or so.

Lightning's Salo Returning Sunday

News: Sami Salo (upper body) will return to the lineup Sunday against the Oilers, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: There was some hope that Sami Salo would be able to go Friday, but he ended up sitting out a fourth consecutive game with the upper-body injury. He's ready to go Sunday, however, and will likely pair up with Victor Hedman. Mark Barberio is expected to be a healthy scratch.

Bolts' Salo Expected To Play Friday

News: Sami Salo (upper body) is expected to play Friday against the Flames, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: After getting non-contact work in for both of the team's last two practices, Sami Salo is set to resume duty on the blue line for the first time in three games. The 39-year-old has seven points and a plus-4 rating in 34 contests this season.

Bolts' Salo Still Sporting Non-Contact Jersey

News: Sami Salo (upper body) was wearing a non-contact jersey during Tuesday's practice, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The fact that Sami Salo is back practicing with the team is an encouraging sign, but it doesn't look like he'll be ready to go for Wednesday's game against the Canucks. If he can get cleared for full contact within the next couple of days, Salo could make his return to action over the weekend.

Bolts' Salo Likely Out Saturday

News: Sami Salo (upper body) is unlikely to play Saturday vs. the Canadiens, Eric Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: With fellow blueliner Eric Brewer also set to sit out Saturday, the Bolts will move to recall a defenseman from AHL Syracuse for the game. Sami Salo first suffered the injury Monday in the second period of a victory over the Panthers.

Bolts' Salo: Upper-Body Injury

News: Sami Salo left Monday's game in the second period and didn't return, according to the Associated Press. He appeared to have suffered an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Sami Salo has been a steady, if not unspectacular presence on the Bolts' blue line this year, but he certainly wasn't producing much from a fantasy perspective. However, his loss will put pressure on the rest of the blue line and that could negatively affect the output of the other defenders.

Bolts' Salo: First Point In 21 Games

News: Sami Salo picked up an assist Tuesday. It was his first point in 21 games.
Analysis: He's chewing up big minutes, but it appears as though his best fantasy days are well behind him. He'll deliver you about a hit and a block per game, but that's about it.
