Callahan will be a game-time decision Thursday against Arizona after missing Tuesday's clash with the Blues due to an undisclosed ailment, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Callahan took part in line rushes during practice, it bodes well for his return to the lineup Thursday. The 24-year-old has notched just one helper in nine outings since returning from a lower-body malady. Its unclear whether this latest injury is related to that one or if the center picked up a new knock.

Callahan (personal) took rushes with the fourth line Saturday and will be in the lineup for Saturday's contest against the Jets, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Callahan never seemed to be in danger of missing this one and he's projected to run alongside Cedric Paquette and Chris Kunitz for Saturday's showdown. The veteran winger will look to notch just his seventh point of the season, which puts him off the fantasy radar for the foreseeable future.

Callahan missed practice Friday due to personal reasons, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Without additional details regarding the nature of Callahan's absence, it's hard to gauge his availability, however, it seems more likely than not that he will be available against the Jets on Saturday. If the winger suits up at the game-day skate prior to the clash with Winnipeg, he should be considered a lock for the lineup.

Callahan picked up his first point in six games Tuesday in a 6-2 win over the Islanders.,

EDGE Analysis

Points have been few and far between for this once-productive forward. But the game has passed Callahan by and he is playing limited minutes on the fourth line in Tampa. So the Bolts will roll Callahan out as long as he's healthy, but you shouldn't. There are much better options available on the wire.

Callahan took part in pregame warmups Saturday, meaning he's expected to be active for the home game against the Sharks, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The New York native was able to participate in morning skate, and his presence for warmups further points to his getting the green light against Team Teal. Still, long gone are Callahan's days playing in the top six, so we wouldn't rush to follow suit and activate him in fantasy.

Callahan (undisclosed) participated in morning skate ahead of Saturday's home game against the Sharks, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lightning coach Jon Cooper said Callahan's been dealing with "maintenance issues" but it doesn't sound like anything too serious. He's shaping up to be a game-time decision.

Callahan and Braydon Coburn both missed practice Friday, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. "There's definitely some maintenance issues going on here, so hopefully it's not long term," said Lightning coach Jon Cooper. "It may require a couple call-ups, so we'll have to see."

EDGE Analysis

It's difficult for us to deduce how long these players might be held out, but Cooper's comments don't inspire confidence in their chances of drawing into Saturday's home contest against the Sharks. The oft-injured Callahan has only missed one game this season, but fantasy owners depending on him should certainly be monitoring this situation. He's added five points (one goal, four assists) through 24 contests, and the silver lining behind this development could be that he's not highly owned in fantasy leagues to begin with.

Callahan (lower body) will return for Sunday's tilt against Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old has been nagged by injuries in 2017-18, but his most recent ailment will only cost him one game. Still Callahan has struggled to put his name on the score sheet this season as he only has two points through 16 games, and he'll skate with Alex Killorn on the fourth line in his return.

Callahan (lower body) won't play Thursday against LA.

EDGE Analysis
