Pittsburgh's Chris Kunitz looks to pass the puck against Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman.
Tampa, FL-- Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman is set to return to the game action, Tuesday, against the Capitals.
Hedman has missed 13 games over the past month, after suffering a concussion in the Flyers' game Dec. 27.
He's been practicing with the team, and has received clearance to play from team doctors.
"I feel good. It's been a long road back, after being out such a long time," Hedman said after Monday night's practice at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. "I wanted to come back right away. But this is what I do for a living, this is what I love to do, so it will be fun to come back and play again."
