Lightning Offseason: Tampa Bay Re-Signs Mike Angelidis

The Tampa Bay Lightning made another offseason move on Monday. Team vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced that the team re-signed forward Mike Angelidis to a one-year contract.

Angelidis played in six games for Tampa Bay this season, recording one goal in his very first NHL game in January against the Columbus Blue Jackets. At 26, he spent most of last season with the Norfolk Admirals of the AHL, where he had 14 goals and 27 points to go with 125 penalty minutes. As captain of that team, he helped them win their first Calder Cup in 2012.

Most of his early hockey career has been in the AHL. Angelidis has also played for the Albany River Rats, totaling 369 career games in the AHL. During that span, he has 76 goals, 150 point and 760 penalty minutes.
