Tampa, FL-- Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman is set to return to the game action, Tuesday, against the Capitals.

Hedman has missed 13 games over the past month, after suffering a concussion in the Flyers' game Dec. 27.

He's been practicing with the team, and has received clearance to play from team doctors.

"I feel good.  It's been a long road back, after being out such a long time," Hedman said after Monday night's practice at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.  "I wanted to come back right away.  But this is what I do for a living, this is what I love to do, so it will be fun to come back and play again."
