The Lightning are gearing up for Game 1 of their first round Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs and injury issues have been plaguing Tampa Bay in recent weeks, including to their big trade deadline acquisition, Tanner Jeannot.

On Monday, Lightning Head Coach Jon Cooper told reporters that Jeannot will not play in Game 2 on Tuesday night in Toronto, but his injury is progressing well and has gotten to the point where he is no longer week-to-week, but rather day-to-day.

"He's definitely not going in Game 1, but what went from week-to-week has definitely been trimmed down to day-to-day." Cooper told reporters.

Jeannot, 25, suffered the injury to his right leg during Tampa Bay's 6-1 loss to the New York Islanders back on April 6th. At the time, it was unclear if he would miss the rest of the season, playoffs included, which would have been a massive blow, considering the price they paid to acquire him from the Nashville Predators.


The Oxbow (Saskatchewan) native was traded to Tampa Bay in late February in exchange for Cal Foote, a 2025 first-round pick, a 2024 second-round pick, as well as third, fourth and fifth round picks in 2023. In 20 games with the Lightning, Jeannot has four points (one goal, three assists), 22 penalty minutes and is a minus-six.
