(TAMPA, Fla.) — The Tampa Bay Lightning signed winger Teddy Purcell to a three-year, $13.5 contract extension Tuesday.
“I really don’t think there is a better fit for me and I still believe I can get better every day,” Purcell said to lightning.nhl.com. “So I’m looking forward to remaining with the Lightning and taking my game another step.”
The 26-year-old Purcell had a career high in goals (26) and assists (41), last season.
Purcell has played for the Lightning since the 2009-10 season when he was traded over from the Los Angeles Kings for center Jeff Halpern and a third round draft pick.
