The Lightning will place Ryan Callahan on long-term IR.

Callahan has degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine that will likely end his career at the age of 34. Callahan has one-year remaining on his contract that would have carried a $5.8M cap-hit but LTIR will provide the Lightning with some cap relief. Callahan finished the 2018-19 season with seven goals and 10 assists (17 points) in just 52 games.

Callahan (shoulder) is expected to make his season debut on Thursday.

Callahan has missed the first four games of the season after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery, but will be back tonight vs.the Red Wings. His return comes earlier than expected, but doesn’t bring a lot of offence to the lineup at this point in his career. Adam Erne is expected to be the healthy scratch.

Callahan (lower-body) is listed as probable for Thursday’s game.

Callahan has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury, but is set to return to the Lightning lineup on Thursday. At this point in his career Callahan is more of a depth forward than the 40-50 point player he used to be. He has just two goals and two assists (four points) in 15 games this season.
