  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Notches helper in return

    Hedman missed Sunday's game versus the Ducks due to a lower-body injury, but he was back to his usual self Wednesday. He led the Lightning with 25:49 of ice time and earned his 10th point in nine March appearances with a helper on Nikita Kucherov's empty-net goal. Hedman is up to 70 points (12 goals, 58 assists), 147 shots on net, 93 blocked shots, 62 PIM and a plus-17 rating through 69 contests overall.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Poised to return Wednesday

    Hedman (lower body) is slated to play in Wednesday's matchup with Boston, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Hedman looks set to return to action after missing just one game due to his lower-body issue. While the blueliner has scored just two goals in his last 10 outings, with both tallies coming in the same game, he did rack up eight helpers over that stretch for a point-per-game pace. With Hedman back in action, he should reclaim his spot at the point with the No. 1 power-play unit.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Won't play Sunday

    Hedman (lower body) is considered day-to-day and will not be available Sunday against Anaheim, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    The day-to-day designation is good news, but Hedman will be absent for at least one game. The veteran blueliner has been productive as usual on the offensive end this year, racking up 12 goals and 69 points through 68 contests. His next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Bruins.

Hedman sits third overall in scoring from the blue line with 66 points (12 goals, 54 assists) in 64 games. This season has been a sweet rebound for the big defender, who saw his output drop last season to only 49 points.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Three helpers against Isles

    Hedman picked up three assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Hits 700 NHL points

    Hedman picked up three assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

    His first helper was his 700th point. Only 29 defenders have achieved 700 career points in the NHL. Hedman heads into the All-Star break on a four-game, six-point scoring streak (one goal, five assists). He also has 50 points in 48 games, which is third on the team behind Nikita Kucherov (85) and Brayden Point (54). So much for all the speculation that Hedman's career was in decline after he posted just 49 points last season.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Four-point outburst leads way

    Hedman scored a goal and added three assists in a 7-4 win over Minnesota on Thursday.

    It was Hedman's seventh career four-point game, tied with Roman Josi (Nashville) for second among active defensemen. Erik Karlsson (Pittsburgh) has 10 to lead active defenders. Hedman's goal came on a one-timer from the point in the first period to knot the game at 1-1. He's put up eight goals and 44 points this season in just 43 games. That puts him on an 80-plus point pace like he delivered in 2021-22. The 33-year-old has effectively rebounded from a 49-point season in 2022-23.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Adds two more helpers

    Hedman notched a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

    Both of Hedman's helpers came on the power play -- he set up Steven Stamkos in the opening period and Nikita Kucherov late in the third. The 33-year-old Hedman now has four assists in his last two games and 11 helpers in his previous eight contests. The four-time All-Star is up to 38 points (five goals, 33 assists) through 37 games this season.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Three-game, five-point streak

    Hedman had a three-assist night Thursday in a 5-4 win over the Golden Knights.

    Hedman is on a three-game, five-assist streak, and suddenly, he's at 32 points in 32 games. That's good enough for a tie with Evan Bouchard of the Oilers for fourth overall in NHL scoring from the blue line. Anyone still worried about a decline in the great Swede can park that thought. This is classic Hedman form.

  • Lightning's Victor Hedman: Grabs helper in return

    Hedman logged a power-play assist, three shots on goal, two blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Flames.

    Hedman missed the previous two games with an upper-body injury. He led all Lightning skaters with 24:41 of ice time in his return, so he should be considered virtually 100 percent going forward. The 32-year-old defenseman has 28 points (12 on the power play), 58 shots on net, 33 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating over 30 appearances this season as the Lightning's top blueliner.
