Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman sustained a lower-body injury during the second period of Thursday's game against the Calgary Flames and was not able to return.

The injury occured on a collision with Flames forward Garnet Hathaway.

After the game, head coach Jon Cooper had no update to offer, adding the defenseman will undergo tests Friday to determine the extent of the injury.

Hedman has recorded six goals and 27 assists in 43 games, once again establishing himself as a Norris Trophy contender based on his steady and consistent play.
