Defenseman Victor Hedman will be a game-time decision when the Tampa Bay Lightning play the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Place on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET; TSN3, SUN, NHL.TV).

Hedman has missed five games with a lower-body injury sustained during a 5-1 loss to the Calgary Flames on Jan. 11.

"He's doing pretty well," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "What did we say, 3-6 weeks? Today is three weeks, so he'll be a game-time decision. We will see how he feels after we get off [the ice]. We did some battling drills there at the end. It's been encouraging, so we will see what happens."

Hedman has 33 points (six goals, 27 assists) and averages a Lightning-high 25:36 of ice time in 44 games this season. The 27-year-old has 334 points (71 goals, 263 assists) in 593 games in nine NHL seasons.
