Mikhail Sergachev News
Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev (upper body) is ready to return to the lineup Tuesday against Toronto. He came out of the lineup a week ago, with head coach Jon Cooper saying that Sergachev is a little banged up, and the Russian rearguard ended up missing two games. The 24-year-old has put in immense work for the Lightning this season, posting 27 points in 28 games with 48 shots, 35 hits and 59 blocks. His return will lead to Cal Foote's exit from the lineup.
Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev is banged up and might not play Thursday versus Columbus, according to head coach Jon Cooper. The Russian rearguard has yet to miss any games this season, and he should be desperate to keep his ironman streak going, but the team will definitely be looking at a longer perspective and might elect to keep him out of action. Sergachev has been a beast on the Tampa blue line all season with 27 points, 48 shots, 35 hits and 59 blocks in 28 games. His absence would open a spot on the second power-play unit, and Nick Perbix and Cal Foote will be competing for bigger minutes.
Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev had the game of his life Sunday against Washington, opening a 6-3 victory with a four-point first period. He became the first blue-liner in franchise history to rack up as many as four points in the first 20 minutes of action. With the effort, Sergachev also matched the NHL record for most points in any period by a defenseman. The 24-year-old posted two goals and two assists, grabbing half of the points with the man advantage. Sergachev is playing a much bigger role for Tampa this season and is on his way to having a career year. He hasn't yet managed more than 40 points in a single campaign but is already on 14 points with 15 games played in 2022-23.
Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against Florida but should be available for next week's season opener. The Russian blue-liner left Thursday's preseason action against the Panthers with an undisclosed injury and it put his status for the first regular-season game of the year in doubt, but Lightning head coach Jon Cooper has delivered good news by noting that Sergachev should be fine for Tuesday's clash with the Rangers. The 24-year-old is set for a significantly bigger role in 2022-23 and should be scooped up in most fantasy leagues.
