Lightning Sign Stamkos...



According to the St. Petersburg Times, the Tampa Bay Lightning have signed the 1st overall pick in the 2008 entry draft, Steven Stamkos. As expected he has gotten the maximum for a rookie, signing for 3 years at $850k plus $2.4mil in bonuses. The Lighting cap hit will be around $3.25mil. The Bolts will make the signing official tomorrow at the opening of there rookie camp in British Columbia. The rookie camp will also include the likes of newly acquired Ty Wishart and former 1st round draft pick, goaltender Riku Helenius among 17 others. The event will be held at owner Len Barrie's Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria British Columbia, and will be open to the public.


IMO: Nothing shocking here. This was expected from the beginning.
