The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed Taylor Raddysh to a three-year, entry-level contract.
A 19-year-old forward, Raddysh was drafted last year in the second round, 58th overall. He really rose to prominence at the World Juniors just a few months ago, when he had five goals in seven games for Team Canada.
Raddysh’s Erie Otters will represent the OHL in the 2017 Memorial Cup, which begins Friday in Windsor. He has 12 goals and 19 assists in 22 playoff games this year.
Taylor’s older brother, Darren, is also on the Otters. An undrafted 21-year-old defenseman, Darren Raddysh has drawn interest from a number of NHL teams, including the Vancouver Canucks.
