Hedman is on the ice for warmups and is expected to play in Game 1 vs. Columbus.
Hedman was hurt early in their last round-robin game but will play in Game 1 vs. Columbus. The injury didn't look great at the time, so it's great news for the Lightning that he is feeling no lingering effects. Hedman had one assist in the three round-robin games.
Hedman will be a game-time decision for Game 1 vs. Columbus.
Hedman was injured early in the Lightning’s round-robin finale vs. the Flyers and did not return. Head coach Jon Cooper did not have an update on his status on Monday and said his availability will be determined on Tuesday. The Lightning play in the first game of the day (3:00 PM) so there will be no morning skate for Hedman to test out his injury.

Hedman left Saturday's game in Boston with an undisclosed injury and is questionable to play tonight in Detroit.
