Tampa Bay Lightning's Ryan Shannon out for season after shoulder surgery, Dustin Tokarski reassigned

It's been a brutal season in terms of injuries for the Tampa Bay Lightning, and it got a little worse Tuesday as wing Ryan Shannon was sidelined for the last 10 games after surgery to repair his right shoulder.

No other information was immediately available.

Shannon left Saturday's loss to the Blues in the second period, though it is believed he aggravated a injury with which he already was dealing when he missed three games in February. He missed 15 games in December and January with a knee injury.

Shannon had four goals, 12 points and was minus-11 in 45 games this season.

In other news, goaltender Sebastien Caron, who on Monday signed a prorated one-year deal, cleared waivers. He will be Dwayne Roloson's backup Thursday against the Oilers.

As expected, Dustin Tokarski was reassigned to AHL Norfolk. He was 1-3-1 in five games with a 3.44 goals-against average and .879 save percentage.
