The Tampa Bay Lightning have agreed to a four-year contract extension with forward Nate Thompson, the club announced Saturday.

Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com and TSN reported the deal is worth $6.4 million, so it carries a salary cap hit of $1.6 million through the 2016-17 campaign.

Thompson, slated to be an unrestricted free agent after this season, has six goals and 10 points in 30 games for the Lightning this season. He has been a fixture on one of the bottom two lines for the Lightning in recent seasons since being claimed on waivers from the New York Islanders in 2010.
