Tampa Bay Lightning

The Lightning have signed Yanni Gourde to a six-year extension worth $30.996M ($5.166M AAV).

Gourde was an undrafted free agent that worked his way to the NHL after playing 298 AHL games and 38 ECHL games. The 26-year-old exploded onto the scene in 2017-18, scoring 25 goals and 39 assists (64 points) in 82 games. Gourde will turn 27 in December, so this contract will take him through his age-33 season.

The Lightning have signed Yanni Gourde to a two-year extension worth $2.0M ($1.0M AAV).

Gourde, 25, had eight points (6G / 2A) in 20 games with the Lightning this season and had 48 points (22G / 26A) in 56 games while with the Syracuse Crunch (AHL). Gourde’s new deal is a one-way deal, so the undersized winger will likely start the year in Tampa Bay.

Gourde, 25, appeared in two games with the Lightning last season, but this is his first call-up of 2016-17. Gourde has 10 goals and 16 assists (26 points) in 29 games with Syracuse. He could make his season debut tonight with Vladislav Namestnikov and Brayden Point both leaving last night’s game with injuries.
