Veteran forward Brenden Morrow signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team announced Friday. Financial terms were not released, but Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reported the value at $1.55 million.
"I think it's a young team that is coming into their own in the next couple of years, so their window of where they are going to be expected to have a championship season,'' Morrow told The Tampa Tribune.
"And they have great leadership and a coach (Jon Cooper) that has won at every level. They are an exciting team. They are a hungry team, and I'm excited about the opportunity to play with this group."
