Victor Hedman injury forces him out of action against Flames

Tampa Bay Lightning all-star defenseman Victor Hedman left Thursday night’s game with a leg injury – and it doesn’t look good.

Here’s the injury that forced Victor Hedman out of the game against the Calgary Flames. The all-star defenseman’s status is unknown but it did not look good.


After departing seven minutes into the period, Hedman’s absence was felt. Calgary scored two quick goals to close out the second period. Hedman did not return to action.

Regardless of the severity, it makes sense for the Lightning to sit Hedman. Their bye week is next week and the All-Star Game is January 28, in Tampa.
