The Tampa Bay Lightning has been a dominant force in the NHL over the last 10 years. Today, they've announced a signing that should help them continue that dominance.

They struck quite the deal when they acquired the pending restricted free agent Tanner Jeannot days prior to the deadline. The Lightning gave up a massive haul to acquire him from the Preds:

- Cal Foote
- 3rd Round Pick 2023
- 4th Round Pick 2023
- 5th Round Pick 2023
- 2nd Round Pick 2024
- 1st Round Pick 2025

The Lightning we're headed to arbitration, and today, the two parties agreed on a new deal for the next two years with a cap hit of $2.665M.



Jeannot, 26, managed 4 points in 20 games with the Lightning. His career-best came with the Predators when he collected 41 points in 82 games during the 2021-2022 campaign.
