All of us fans have been excited these past few days as NHL hockey is finally back and we are loving every second of this pre-season.

Unfortunately for the Tampa Bay Lightning though, things must come to a halt for the time being as training camp is being shut down at the moment due to Hurricane Ian.

The storm is currently over the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to hit the Tampa Bay area with some very strong storm surges possibly as early as Wednesday.




Due to the location of the Tampa Bay arena, they will be looking for a new area to relocate to finish training camp.

Awaiting word from #GoBolts officials, nothing back yet, but Evacuation Zone A in HIlls. Co. under mandatory evacuation orders, this includes the Marriott Waterside where many players are staying during camp as well as Amalie Arena area and many of the areas the players reside

But with Amalie in Evacuation Zone A, hard to see either of this week's scheduled preseason games behind held (Wed/Thurs) in town plus players staying Marriott have to be transported elsewhere. Team could take camp out of town, maybe Nashville, for the next few days.
