Lightning's Hedman out 4-6 weeks with broken finger

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman will have surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured finger on his right hand and will miss 4-6 weeks, the team announced Monday.

Hedman left Tampa Bay's game Saturday after blocking a shot. Lightning coach Jon Cooper said after the game that Hedman was returning to Florida and is likely to miss the final four games of the current road trip, which continues Monday night against the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place.

"You just feel for [Hedman]," Cooper said after the game Saturday in Vancouver. "He's come out of the gate so strong, he's poised just to build on the year he had last year and now he might be sidelined here for a little bit. I really feel for him."

At the Rink: Wild at Kings

The Minnesota Wild and Los Angeles Kings did not hold a morning skate in advance of their 3 p.m. ET game Sunday at Staples Center.

After beginning the season with consecutive shutouts of the Colorado Avalanche, the Wild lost 2-1 on Friday to the Anaheim Ducks. Goalie Darcy Kuemper made 24 saves and saw his franchise-record shutout streak end at 163:46. Kuemper, though, will sit Sunday in favor of veteran Niklas Backstrom, who makes his first start since Jan. 11 and first appearance since Jan. 30 after having abdominal and hip surgeries last season.

Wild coach Mike Yeo said to expect changes on the power play following the loss to Anaheim on Friday. Minnesota is 0-for-11 with the man advantage and one of four teams without a power-play goal. Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, Thomas Vanek, Jason Pominville and Ryan Suter made up the first unit at practice Saturday. Nino Niederreiter, Mikael Granlund, Charlie Coyle, Jared Spurgeon and Jonas Brodin were on the second unit.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.

— Capitals defenseman Mike Green on teammate Alex Ovechkin's highlight-reel goal against the Devils on Saturday
