NHL Cap Hit: $83,404,166 Puckpedia Profile

The Lightning have signed Chris Gibson to a one-year, two-way contract.

Gibson was steady in net for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL) in 2020, going 10-8-5 with a 2.78 GAA and .914 SV%. Gibson has played very sparingly in the NHL throughout his seven-year pro career, going 3-4-3 with a 3.45 GAA and .904 SV% in 14 career games. Gibson will likely be the No.1 netminder in Syracuse (AHL) in 2021 and would come up if something were to happen to Andrei Vasilevskiy or Curtis McElhinney.

The Lighting have signed Pat Maroon to a two-year contract extension worth $1.8M ($900K AAV).

Maroon has won back-to-back Stanley Cups and returns to the Lightning on a two-year extension. In his first season, he had 23 points (9G / 14A) in 64 regular season games and added six points (1G / 5A) in 25 playoff games. Maroon is a perfect fit for the Lightning's fourth line.

Stephens was a second-round pick (No.33 overall) in 2015 and graduated to the NHL in 2020. The 23-year-old centre had 10 points (5G / 5A) in 24 AHL games before getting promoted and picking up six points (3G / 3A) in 38 games in Tampa. He appeared in seven playoff games, scoring one goal en route to getting his name on the Stanley Cup.

Stamkos is unlikely to play in Game 2 but has not officially been ruled out.

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said that he doesn’t think Stamkos will play in Game 2 but didn’t rule it out either. That makes Stamkos a game-time decision but more doubtful than probable. The Lightning have scored just four goals in their last three games (1.33 GF/gm) so they could use a 400-goal scorer.

Point will be a game-time decision for Game 6 vs. the Islanders.

Point missed Game 3, returned for Game 4 and then missed Game 5 of this series. Prior to the last game, head coach Jon Cooper said that they are trying to manage the injury, so it sounds like they want to try and rest him and still get to the Stanley Cup Final. Point is listed as a game-time decision but don't be surprised if he sits out a second straight game.
