Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman on Tuesday signed to play with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League for the duration of the work stoppage.

The second pick of the 2009 NHL Draft, Hedman had a career-best five goals in 61 games last season, and his 23 points were second among the team's blueliners.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
