It’s not injury-related or huge news that Tampa Bay Lightning fans should be worried about, but defenceman Victor Hedman will not fly to Toronto with the team on Sunday. Reports coming out of Tampa Bay are that Hedman first needs to attend to a personal matter.

GM Julien BriseBois told reporters on Sunday that Hedman is on the Lightning’s Return to Play to play roster and should be with the team for their first round-robin game against the Washington Capitals on August 3.

Hedman will stay back with team strength coach Mark Lambert and both will join the team in the Toronto hub on Friday.

That said, the Lightning won’t have Hedman, nor Steven Stamkos in the lineup for their first exhibition game against the Florida Panthers on July 29.
