Forward Dana Tyrell re-signed with the Columbus Blue Jackets, agreeing to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Monday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Tyrell, 25, played seven games for the Tampa Bay Lightning last season. He played 63 games for the Springfield Falcons and Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League, and had a combined 15 goals and 33 points.

The Blue Jackets acquired Tyrell and defenseman Matt Taormina from the Lightning in March for forwards Dalton Smith and Jonathan Marchessault.

Tyrell, a second-round pick (No. 47) of the Lightning in the 2007 NHL Draft, had seven goals and 24 points in 132 games with Tampa Bay.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
