The Tampa Bay Lightning will welcome Victor Hedman back to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators, head coach Jon Cooper announced after the morning skate.

The stalwart defenseman missed a game after suffering a concussion - the third of his career - on Oct. 15.

Hedman recorded four assists and five shots while averaging 20 minutes of ice time in five games this season.

He skated with regular defense partner Anton Stralman in practice, and will resume logging heavy minutes and driving the offense from the defensive zone.
