The Tampa Bay Lightning took the time today to make a major announcement regarding their franchise.

Lightning Give Update On Vasilevskiy



Today during a press conference Jon Cooper gave an update on Andrei Vasilevskiy's recovery from surgery. Cooper was enthusiastic about the progress and even gave a timeline for when we might see Vasilevskiy return.

Tampa coach Jon Cooper says they're hoping to get Andrei Vasilevskiy back around U.S. Thanksgiving or so, says the star goalie's recovery and rehab going well




The Lightning can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their franchise centerpiece is just around the corner from being back. In the meantime, Jonas Johansson will continue to fill the gaps and keep the Lightning in the playoff race.

Once Vasilevskiy returns it will be fascinating to see how the two goalies split games. Vasilevskiy is notorious for playing a ton of games each season.

With Johansson playing well and the Lightning wanting to be cautious a more traditional split could be in order.
