Assistant team captain and defensive leader Mattias Ohlund has missed the past two games with what had been an undisclosed foot injury. It was revealed by the team after yesterday's loss to the Penguins that it's an ankle sprain and that Ohlund is now out indefinitely as he recovers.
Damian Cristodero wrote a blog post about the Lightning injury woes and about Ohlund's status before the team took to the ice for yesterday's game:
Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mattias Ohlund was limping noticeably through the Lightning locker room this morning with ice around his left ankle. Coach Rick Tocchet said Ohlund is getting "aggressive" treatment for the injury, which Tocchet said has not required tests but is obviously more than just a bump.
There is no timetable for Ohlund's return, and forwards Ryan Malone and Zenon Konopka remain sidelined as well with their own injuries.
