TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Tampa Bay Lightning backup goalie Olaf Kolzig was scheduled to have what was expected to be season-ending surgery Saturday on his left forearm.

Kolzig has a distal biceps tendon rupture, which normally has a three-to-four month recovery period. He hasn't played since beating Montreal on Dec. 11.

The 38-year-old goalie is 21st on the career victory list with 303. He signed with Tampa Bay as free agent in July after 16 seasons with Washington. He's 2-4-1 with a 3.66 goals-against-average in eight games this season.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
