Tampa Bay Lightning captain Marty St. Louis is reportedly in a walking boot and missed Wednesday's practice after suffering a lower body injury in Tuesday's victory over the Los Angeles Kings, according to a report Wednesday from the Tampa Bay Times.

St. Louis injured himself after taking a slap shot off the foot of Kings defenseman Drew Doughty in the third period. The Lightning won the game convincingly by a score of 5-1, but the 38-year-old St. Louis was seen limping after the game when he left the locker room.

According to the report, he was seen wearing the walking boot when he left Tampa Bay Times Forum. Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said as far as he can tell, St. Louis' injury is not "alarmingly serious." No other information about the extent of his injury is immediately available.

In his first six games, St. Louis has four goals and is second in points in the league (10), behind only Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. Tampa Bay is currently 4-2-0. It's unclear whether St. Louis will be ready for Thursday's home game vs. the Minnesota Wild.
