Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy will return to the crease for Thursday night's tilt against the Toronto Maple Leafs, head coach Jon Cooper confirmed after the team's morning skate.

The Bolts netminder missed the last 14 games with a broken foot, an injury he sustained during a November practice.

Tampa Bay went 12-2 in his absence and has won seven straight games. It holds the best record in the NHL.

Before his injury, Vasilevskiy started 13 times for the Lightning, posting a 9-3-1 record with a .927 save percentage.
