Lightning sign Blujus to entry-level contract
The Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday signed 2012 draft pick Dylan Blujus to a three-year, entry-level contract

Defenseman Dylan Blujus signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Blujus, 20, was a second-round pick (No. 40) in the 2012 NHL Draft. He had four goals and 30 points in 55 games this season for the North Bay Battalion of the Ontario Hockey League. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound player had four goals and 10 points in 22 playoff games. Blujus led all North Bay defensemen in goals in the playoffs, with three on the power play. He helped the Battalion reach the OHL finals.

Blujus has 17 goals and 119 points in 256 OHL games in four seasons with Brampton and North Bay.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
