Draft Player News (Feb. 26)

In the game between the Lightning and the Penguins on Saturday afternoon, defenseman Victor Hedman left the game, with what the Bolts are calling an upper-body injury.

On Sunday morning, there was no official update as to the status of Hedman, but there was some indication that he is unlikely to play on Sunday against the Devils, as they have recalled Evan Oberg from Norfolk of the AHL, who will likely take his place.

Allan S. is sitting quietly in 10th place after Saturday's proceedings, 15 points back of 9th and 8 points up on 11th, so there is a mighty fine chance that he will be finishing the week in the top 10.  Allan's defense as a whole has been below-average all season long and this injury is not likely going to help his cause at all, especially if the injury is long-term.
