Lightning's Kucherov out indefinitely with lower-body injury

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Lightning star Nikita Kucherov will be out indefinitely with a lower-body injury he suffered late in the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions' overtime win over the Washington Capitals last weekend.

"It's definitely not a day-to-day thing, so we'll wait until we get an official word, but he's definitely out," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said after practice Monday. "He's going to be out for a while here. We're not going to put a timetable on it until we get an official word. In the short term here he's definitely out."

Kucherov missed all of the 2020-21 regular season after undergoing hip surgery in the offseason. He returned in the playoffs to have eight goals and 24 assists to help the Lightning win their second consecutive Stanley Cup.
