Lightning all-star Victor Hedman out 3-6 weeks
Tampa Bay defenceman has lower-body injury, will miss NHL showcase in home arena
The Tampa Bay Lightning will be without star defenceman Victor Hedman for the next three to six weeks due to a lower-body injury.
Hedman was hurt in Tampa's 5-1 home loss to the Calgary Flames on Thursday when he was hit on side of his left knee during a collision with Calgary's Garnet Hathaway and needed assistance to the locker room.
The injury will force Hedman to miss the all-star game in the Lightning's home arena later this month.
