Killorn has been moved to the top-line with Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis.
Killorn, 24, had a strong start to the season but has really cooled off as of late. Moving him onto a line with the red-hot Stamkos could get jumpstart Killorn. Whoever plays the LW on this line becomes a solid fantasy commodity. Ryan Malone had seven points in 12 games in that position.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed forward Alex Killorn to a two-year, two-way contract, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced today.
Killorn will likely begin his pro season in the AHL.
