Condra cleared waivers Wednesday and returned to AHL Syracuse, reports the Tampa Times.

EDGE Analysis

The Bolts are deep up front and there simply wasn't room for the veteran winger. The 31-year-old delivered 48 points in 55 games for the Crunch last season, but at his age, he's a senior citizen in the NHL.

Condra (back) was waived by the Lightning on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Condra had been on the non-roster injured list and hasn't played in a game yet this season. Nobody is going to complain about Tampa Bay's offensive production thus far, so it would seem that the Lightning aren't in need of Condra's services, even when he returns to full health.

Condra (back) remains on the non-roster injured list and is projected to be scratched against the Red Wings on Monday, Dave Hogg of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Condra has yet to get into a game for the Lightning this season and will not be available Monday. Considering Tampa Bay is headed into a back-to-back, he is probably doubtful to return Tuesday versus the Devils either. Once back to 100 percent, the 31-year-old will need to be activated which will force the team to make a corresponding roster move.

Condra (back) joined the team for practice Monday in a regular jersey, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Condra started the season on the non-roster injured list after he hadn't been cleared for contact. Now that the winger can fully participate in practice, he could be in line to return soon, but has not been activated to the 23-man roster and won't be ready in time for Monday's matchup with Washington.

Condra will start the 2017-18 season on injured reserve, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Condra still hasn't been cleared for contact, so this move was to be expected. The 31-year-old winger, who went scoreless in 13 games with the Lightning last season, will likely be assigned to AHL Syracuse once he's been given a clean bill of health.

Condra (back) returned to the Lightning after a rehab stint with AHL Syracuse, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Condra is not cleared for contact, but it is a good sign that he is back with Tampa Bay. The winger is likely still going to start the year on injured reserve and remains without a clear timeline to return to action -- putting his availability for the Bolts back-to-back start to the season in doubt.

Condra (back), who's currently rehabbing in Syracuse following summer back surgery, could start the season on injured reserve, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old winger only drew into 13 games with the big club last season, and he failed to tally a single point over that span, but he also served as AHL Syracuse's captain in 2016-17, so Tampa Bay's AHL affiliate could be without a fantastic source of veteran leadership early on this campaign. Another update on Condra's status should be released if and when he's officially placed on IR.

Condra (back) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Seeing as this is the first preseason game for the team in Tampa Bay, there's apparently no rush to get Condra back into game action just yet, as the club likely wants to make sure he is fully recovered from his offseason back surgery first. The Michigan native remains day-to-day for the time being.

Condra (back) remains day-to-day as the Lightning kick off training camp Thursday, Lightning Insider Erik Erlendsson reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tampa Bay kicks off the preseason Sept. 19 versus Carolina, which would be Condra's first chance to get back in the lineup. Regardless of when he suits up during training camp, the winger appears to be trending in the right direction and should hopefully be ready in time for Opening Night versus Florida.

Condra (back) has yet to resume skating after offseason back surgery, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Condra had a great minor-league campaign last year -- 48 points in 55 outings -- but this lingering back issue could impact his ability to parlay that into more ice time with the Lightning. If he can't give it a go for training camp, the winger will likely be forced to begin the season in the AHL. Once fully healthy, the 31-year-old should be able to suit up in more than the 13 contests he did in 2016-17 -- although fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect him to be much more than a 20-point player in the NHL.
