Lightning sign Moore to two-year contract
Veteran forward Dominic Moore found a new home Friday, agreeing on a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"Dominic's skating ability, strength on faceoffs and versatility will be a great edition to our lineup," Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said. "We're pleased to welcome him to the organization."

Moore split last season between the Panthers and Canadiens, recording 10 goals and 28 points in 69 games while averaging just less than 15 minutes of ice time per contest. He ranked 18th in the NHL among forwards who took 600 faceoffs or more, winning 365 of 663 draws for a 55.0 percentage. Moore was traded from Florida to Montreal on Feb. 11 and went on to play in 19 Stanley Cup Playoff games with the Canadiens, recording 4 goals and 5 points.

Moore, who was drafted by the New York Rangers in the third round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, has played in 374 career NHL games with the New York, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Toronto, Buffalo, Florida and Montreal. He has amassed 45 goals, 9 power-play goals, 3 shorthanded goals, 3 game-winning goals, 128 points and 243 penalty minutes. Moore has also played in 23 career Stanley Cup Playoff games with New York and Montreal.






Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
