News: Hedman (hand) took part in a full-contact session during Wednesday's morning skate, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Hedman had been eyeing a return to action Saturday, and if ditching the non-contact jersey at practice is any indication, he seems on his way to meeting that goal. Before breaking his hand, the 23-year-old was arguably the league's top-performing blueliner, netting three goals and assisting on four others in the Bolts' first five games. His fantasy owners should immediately clear a lineup spot for him upon his return.(RotoWire, )

News: Hedman (hand) did some light shooting and saw limited involvement in the Lightning's practice Thursday morning, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: Now that he's resumed shooting the puck, Hedman seemingly only has a few more barriers to clear before the team's medical staff determines that he's sufficiently recovered from the hand injury. The blueliner said after Thursday's workout that he's about a week and a half away from a return, putting him on schedule for a late-November or early-December activation.(RotoWire, )

News: Hedman (hand) has begun skating in full gear, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Hedman is likely just trying to stay conditioned while he continues to miss extensive time due to the fractured finger, which he first suffered in an Oct. 18 game in Vancouver. The blueliner continues to wear a splint on his finger and has yet to be cleared for shooting drills, so a return still isn't imminent at this time. The Bolts continue to project him to rejoin the team at some point in early December.(RotoWire, )
