Lightning Recall Cole Koepke
Pro Hockey Rumors » Tampa Bay Lightning

The Lightning are rewarding one of their better minor-league producers this season, as the team announced Thursday that Cole Koepke is heading up from AHL Syracuse. No corresponding moves are necessary, as the team has an open roster spot and ample space in their LTIR salary pool. A sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft, Koepke produced near a point-per-game rate at the University of Minnesota-Duluth in his sophomore and junior years. However, he has had an inconsistent development track since turning pro in 2021. He was a surprise name on Tampa Bay’s opening night roster in 2022-23, but he ..read more

The Tampa Bay Lightning could be viewing Noah Hanifin as their replacement for Mikhail Sergachev, per TSN’s Chris Johnston on Insider Trading. Sergachev has had terrible injury luck this season, recently fracturing both bones in his lower left leg just 10 minutes into his return from a separate lower-body injury that held him out for two months. The 25-year-old defenseman has played just 34 games this season, scoring 19 points. He’s now out indefinitely and is currently on the team’s long-term injured reserve. Hanifin would be a darling replacement for Sergachev and a major addition to a Tampa ..read more

The Chicago Blackhawks are reportedly working with local doctors to see if Connor Bedard can make a surprise return to the lineup on Thursday night, per Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman. This return would come well ahead of expectations, with head coach Luke Richardson previously stating his hope was for Bedard to return next week. To say Bedard’s return would be impactful is an understatement. The 18-year-old rookie phenom still leads the team in scoring despite missing their last 14 games. The Blackhawks have been abysmal in his absence, going 3-10-1. This includes a seven-game losing streak (0 ..read more

Tanner Jeannot Placed On LTIR
Pro Hockey Rumors » Tampa Bay Lightning

To make room for the activation of Mikhail Sergachev from LTIR earlier today, the Lightning quietly placed winger Tanner Jeannot on LTIR, reports Erik Erlendsson of Lightning Insider (Twitter link).  The 26-year-old has missed more than a month already with his lower-body injury so this placement is simply procedural but it allows them to avoid any salary cap-related transactions for a little longer.  However, Jeannot is expected to be activated at some point on their current road trip so the roster will need to be trimmed down soon enough.  Jeannot has a dozen points in 41 game ..read more
