Conacher (undisclosed) is expected to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's Game 5 matchup, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Conacher hasn't played in a game since April 18, it shouldn't come as a surprise he is not going to suit up now that he is healthy. A frequent scratch throughout the regular season, the winger made just 36 appearances for the Lightning, in which he tallied eights goal and four helpers. It will likely take an injury to another forward for the 27-year-old to show up in the lineup the rest of the playoffs.

Conacher (undisclosed) was spotted at Tuesday's morning skate wearing a red no-contact jersey, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

This means Conacher will miss an eighth straight contest, as the winger has been a spectator even when healthy. It appears that Chris Kunitz will continue operating in a fourth-line capacity on the left wing with Conacher tending to his undisclosed issue.

Conacher scored his seventh goal of the season in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

He'd gone seven games without a point before lighting the lamp Wednesday. Conacher now has 10 points in 28 games with the big club, having bounced between the NHL and AHL all season, and there's no guarantee he keeps his spot once Nikita Kucherov (upper body) and Ondrej Palat (lower body) get healthy.

Conacher scored two goals, including the game winner, on two shots in a 7-4 win over the Flames on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

This is a bit of a surprise, as Conacher has been largely absent from the Lightning's lineup recently. He had been a scratch in Tampa's previous five games, and in eight of their previous nine contests. One game with two goals isn't likely going to change much for the 28-year-old.

Despite his recent solid performance, Conacher may find himself sent down to the minors soon, reports the Tampa Times.

EDGE Analysis

He played in his eighth game of the season Saturday. Once Conacher reaches 10 cumulative games or 30 days up in the NHL, he will have to clear waivers to get sent back to AHL Syracuse. There is a chance the Bolts will swap Conacher out of the lineup after Tuesday's game and replace him with someone from the minors.

Conacher is sticking with the Lightning "for now," reports the Tampa Times.

EDGE Analysis

Conacher has notched two goals in the two games he's played this season. He practiced on a line with Yanni Gourde and Alex Killorn on Monday.

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Cedric Paquette (suspension) won't be available for Saturday's matchup with San Jose, so Conacher will round out Tampa Bay's depth up front against the Sharks. The 27-year-old forward has racked up seven goals and 15 points in 18 games in the minors this season.

Conacher was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The second-term Lightning was given somewhat of a raw deal in being sent down Sunday, as he potted a goal and finished with a plus-1 rating in the lone game he played during his recall. That said, even if Conacher is recalled again, don't expect him to replicate that type of production consistently.

Conacher was recalled from the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Lightning placed Conacher on waivers near the start of the season before assigning him to the Crunch, where he's appeared in 17 games and scored a team-high six goals. He'll now join the Lightning in the big leagues, where he has a chance to see the ice for their weekend double-header, starting with Friday's matchup with the Capitals.

Conacher was waived by the Lightning on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

EDGE Analysis

The waiver wire is piping hot, with dozens of transactions made by NHL clubs in preparation for the 2017-18 season. For Conacher, it's likely that he's been deemed expendable due to the Bolts having picked up veteran Chris Kunitz -- formerly with the Penguins -- in free agency. Suffice it to say, there's very little a fantasy owner could do with a part-time NHLer like Conacher -- he's drawn into just 26 games since the 2014-15 campaign, though to be fair, he did spent the following season in Switzerland. Given that he's likely to clear waivers, expect AHL Syracuse to be his next destination.
