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.

He helped the Battalion reach the OHL finals.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
