The Tampa Bay Lightning shared some bad news in the last few minutes.

Andrei Vasilevskiy underwent a back surgery that'll keep him off the ice for 8 to 10 weeks.


Per Kevin Weekes:

"Breaking News 🚨 📰 🚑
I'm told @TBLightning G Vasilevskiy 88 underwent successful back surgery and is expected to make a complete recovery in an 8-10 week timeframe."


This puts the Lightning in a horrible situation.

Now, the Bolts are in a tough spot. They'll need to either rely on Jonas Johansson, their number two goalie, or make a trade.

A few goalies are still available on the market and the Avs could devide to go and get one.

Jaroslav Halak might be their best option here. Would you like to see that happen?
