Malone, who has four goals and one assist in 10 games this year, is listed by the team as day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Pierre-Cedric Labrie will play his third game of the season and 17th of his career in place of Malone.
Malone played 18:19 in the Lightning's most-recent game, a 4-2 loss in New Jersey on Thursday.
It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
