The Tampa Bay Lightning have moved their training camp to Nashville, in light of Hurricane Ian's impact on Florida, according to beat writer Chris Krenn.

The National Hurricane Center in the U.S. on Tuesday predicted a "life-threatening storm surge" from Hurricane Ian, with "the highest risk from Fort Myers to the Tampa Bay region." Several professional and collegiate sports teams have either postponed, moved, or cancelled games in the coming days because of weather concerns.

The Lightning will play a pre-season game in Carolina on Tuesday night, followed by a re-scheduled encounter with the Predators in Nashville on Thursday. The latter game was originally supposed to take place in Tampa.
