The Tampa Bay Lightning have not yet confirmed some of the contracts that we know they have signed, and instead in a press release announced several new (and some familiar) players returning on one-year, two-way contracts as depth pieces for the team and key pieces for the Syracuse Crunch. Here is the list:


Gabriel Dumont (30, C)

Charles Hudon (27, LW)

The Lightning have brought in two French-Canadian forwards. Dumont is an old friend of the Syracuse Crunch and is presumably back for another AHL season. Hudon was once a touted prospect by the ever-optimistic Montreal Canadiens fanbase, but is now an AHLer as well. Benoit Groulx’s Crunch have always had their fair share of Quebecers.
