Gratton Done After Surgery

The Tampa Bay Lightning have now lost centre Chris Gratton (Box 21) for the remainder of the season after he was tipped for hip surgery next week to repair his torn labrum.

Gratton played in 60 games, picking up 21 points (10G, 11A) this season for the Ligntning in his second return to the club. This could be a pretty big blow for the Lightning, who wanted to salvage something from this season, but now the spot opens up for a young player to jump in from the minors and get some big league time.
