Kucherov, 28, has been out since suffering the injury after a minor collision with Garnet Hathaway of the Washington Capitals during a game on Oct. 16.

Kucherov missed the 2020-21 regular season after having hip surgery in December, but was able to return for the playoffs. The Russian led the league in postseason scoring with eight goals and 24 assists for 32 points over 23 games as the Bolts won their second straight Stanley Cup.
