by Staff Writer / Tampa Bay Lightning

TAMPA BAY – The National Hockey League cancelled the three remaining Lightning preseason games today. Cancelled home games include Tuesday, October 2 at Germain Arena in Ft. Myers against the Florida Panthers and Thursday, October 4 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum against the Panthers. In addition, the Lightning’s final preseason game on Saturday, October 6 at BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL against the Panthers was also cancelled.

The cancellation of the games was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.

The Lightning are offering Season Ticket Members multiple refund options through its Loyalty and Rewards Program. Season Ticket Members, as well as those with 21- and 10-game plans, can visit or call the Lightning service department at 813.301.6800 for more information.
