Hedman recorded his second straight multi-point game Friday, logging two assists in a win over the Red Wings.

The beat goes on for Hedman, who now has 37 points in 52 games on the season. He's piled up 12 points in his last 14 games and is playing a key role for a Lightning team that has suffered just one regulation loss in their eight games. With a plus-13 rating and 40 PIM, the solid all-around fantasy option should be rolled out with confidence every game.

Hedman scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Monday's 4-2 victory over the Canadiens.

He now has double-digit goals (10) and 35 points overall in just 51 games -- that's a pace similar to his career mark from last season. He is likely a mid-50s (or slightly better) player going forward, so start planning your draft next year. This year? Activate him and let it ride.

Hedman scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Stars. He has four points (two goals, two assists) on his current three-game point streak.

He has 33 points in 47 games despite missing considerable time to injury. That pace would put him in line for a new career point total if he'd be healthy all season long. He'll vie for a Norris one of these days and you'll want him to be all yours when he does. #keepergold

Hedman scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Sabres, ending a 10-game goalless skid.

Hedman did stay reasonably productive over those 10 games, picking up five assists. When healthy, he's been one of the game's premier assets on the blue line this year, and he seems poised to finish strong.

Hedman (undisclosed) is on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll be good to go for Friday's game against the Blackhawks, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports.

Though coach Jon Cooper termed Hedman as a game-time decision, but there was never much doubt in the blueliner's availability after he confirmed that he would play following the Bolts' morning skate. Hedman doesn't look to be in danger of facing any limitations Friday, so his fantasy owners should feel comfortable with keeping him active.

Though coach Jon Cooper labeled Hedman (undisclosed) as a game-time decision for Friday's tilt with the Blackhawks, it's expected that the blueliner will play, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Hedman was a full participant in the Bolts' morning skate, so his fantasy owners can probably feel comfortable inserting him into their lineup. His availability will officially be confirmed when pregame warmups commence a half hour prior to the 6:30 ET puck drop.

Hedman (undisclosed) participated in morning skate, ahead of Friday's game against the Blackhawks, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.

Hedman left Thursday's practice early, but it appears the issue isn't overly serious. He can still be considered questionable for Friday's game.

Hedman left Thursday's practice early with an undisclosed injury, but is still expected to play Friday against the Blackhawks, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It's not clear what transpired during the practice that resulted in the injury, but coach Jon Cooper suggested afterward that Hedman's removal was just precautionary. Assuming he's able to get back on the ice for morning skate on Friday, Hedman should be available for his usual minutes in the game later that evening.

Hedman notched an assist in Sunday's loss to the Avalanche.

Since busting out with seven points in his first three games this season, Hedman's production has fallen back to earth a bit, with hand and lower-body injuries presenting setbacks along the way. Even so, he's now tallied an assist in three of his last four games to give him 28 points over 42 games, to go along with a strong plus-12 rating. He won't come close to reaching last season's career-best 55-point total, but his current level of production keeps him among the upper tier of fantasy blueliners.

Hedman netted his sixth goal of the season and picked up four PIM in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Stars.

Hedman's scoring pace has dipped considerably since the early part of January, as he entered Thursday's contest with only two assists over his last nine games. That minor downturn in offense shouldn't deter fantasy owners from keeping Hedman active. If not for a handful of injuries this season, Hedman would likely rank near the top of the league in blue line scoring.
