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 (personal) did not travel with the team but is expected to be available for the Round Robin games.

The Tampa Bay Lightning entered the playoff bubble in Toronto on Sunday but Hedman remained in Tampa for a "personal matter." Hedman and Tampa's strength coach will stay back until Friday, at which point both will fly to Toronto and meet back up with the team. Hedman will miss Tampa Bay's exhibition game against the Panthers on Wednesday but will be available for all three round-robin games, general manager Julien BriseBois said.

Hedman (undisclosed) is questionable to play Sunday in Detroit.

Hedman left Saturday's game in Boston with an undisclosed injury and is questionable to play tonight in Detroit. Head coach Jon Cooper did not have an update on Hedman's status postgame but said he'll be re-evaluated prior to Sunday's game. If Ryan McDonagh isn't ready to return, look for Luke Schenn to replace Hedman.

Hedman (lower-body) will be back in the Lightning lineup on Friday.

The Lightning are in Sweden to face the Sabres in the Global Series, so Hedman will enjoy a homecoming in his return to the lineup. Hedman missed just two games with a lower-body injury and will look to build off of a strong month of October, where he tallied two goals and seven assists (nine points) in 11 games.
