LIGHTNING RE-SIGN GOALIE ROLOSON TO ONE-YEAR, $3M DEAL

rol_45755.jpg

The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed goalie Dwayne Roloson to a one-year deal worth $3 million.

The 41-year-old netminder enjoyed a renaissance this spring with some strong play to backstop the Lightning to an appearance in the Eastern Conference Final.

Roloson split his time last season between the New York Islanders and the Lightning, posting a combined 24-25-5 record with four shutouts and a 2.59 goals against average. He then excelled during Tampa Bay's playoff run with a 10-6 record and a .924 save percentage during series victories over Pittsburgh and Washington. The Lightning eventually lost in seven games to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins.

The veteran of 13 NHL seasons began his career with Calgary before moving onto Buffalo, Minnesota, Edmonton, and the Islanders before he was traded to the Lightning on Jan. 1 this year.

Roloson also earned $3 million last season in the final season of a two-year, $5 million contract. He was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this Friday had he not been locked up by Tampa Bay.

Lightning announce 5-year extension for Hedman

The Tampa Bay Lightning have made it official, announcing they've signed defenseman Victor Hedman to a five-year contract extension today.

Terms of the deal were not released, but TSN earlier reported the value at $4 million a season.

"We are extremely pleased to announce that we have agreed to a five-year contract with Victor," said Lightning GM Steve Yzerman. "He has shown tremendous growth as a player in just more than two seasons in the NHL while also becoming a key member of our team. We look forward to his continued development in a Lightning uniform."

The second pick of the 2009 Entry Draft, Hedman has 2 goals and a minus-5 rating in 20 games, and he's second on the team in average ice time per game at 22:55.

Hedman's numbers might be down a bit this season, but the 6-foot-6, 229-pound 20-year-old posted a career-best 26 points last season, and had 6 points in 18 playoff games while playing more than 22 minutes per game and emerging as a top-pairing defense.

"I'd like to thank our owner, Mr. (Jeff) Vinik, and of course GM Steve Yzerman for helping me move forward in my career," said Hedman. "I love it in Tampa Bay with the Lightning and I will do all I can to help this organization be successful on and off the ice."

The Tampa Bay Lightning have agreed to terms with free agent forward Antti Miettinen to a two-year, one-way contract.

Miettinen appeared in 20 games with Ak-Bars Kazan of Russia's Kontinental Hockey League this season, recording two goals and eight points. He last appeared in an NHL game as a member of the Minnesota Wild during the 2010-11 season when he registered 16 goals and 35 points in 73 games.

Miettinen has skated in 472 career NHL games with the Wild and Dallas Stars and has amassed 89 goals and 212 points throughout his NHL career.

Miettinen has also represented Finland in international competition, suiting up for his native county on six occasions. He was named to Team Finland's Olympic roster in 2006, and most recently, in 2010, when he helped his squad bring home a bronze medal.

Miettinen was original drafted by the Stars in the seventh round, 224th overall, at the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.

Defenceman Kyle Quincey was traded twice in the matter of minutes on Tuesday. In the first deal, the Tampa Bay Lightning dealt forward Steve Downie to the Colorado Avalanche for Quincey. The Lightning then dealt Quincey to the Detroit Red Wings for a first round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and minor-league defenceman Sebastien Piche.
