Lightning, Crombeen agree on contract extension


The Tampa Bay Lightning and B.J. Crombeen have come to an agreement on a two-year contract extension, the club announced on Twitter Monday evening.

The contract should be signed tomorrow, the club added.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted out a sample of the financial details in the contract extension for the 27-year-old winger.

Crombeen has one goal and seven points in 30 games for the Lightning this season – his first in Tampa Bay.

It’s not his goal-scoring the Lightning are interested in. Crombeen, who has just nine goals in his last 150 games, has hit 100 minutes or more in penalties three times in his NHL career and offers the Lightning a physical presence and toughness.
