TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed goaltender Sebastien Caron, and hope to add him to the roster Tuesday, if he clears waivers.

Caron, whose equipment already was in place in the Lightning locker room, has been playing for German team Iserlohn Roosters and if all goes well, will join the team in time for Thursday's game against Edmonton.

Caron has appeared in 92 NHL games with a record of 25-47-12 with a 3.45 goals-against average.

"We'll go one game at a time and give him some time to get accustomed first, flying back here, being back in the NHL and getting used to NHL shots and NHL type of game, and we'll see when we can put him in," Boucher said.

Once Caron joins the team, Dustin Tokarski will be returned to AHL Norfolk for the playoffs.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
