TAMPA, Fla. - Dwayne Roloson is close to re-signing with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The two sides worked Wednesday to finalize a one-year contract for Roloson, a major contributor in Tampa Bay's run to the Eastern Conference finals. The team isn't commenting until the deal is completed.
Roloson, acquired from the New York Islanders on Jan. 1, went 18-12-4 in helping Tampa Bay earn its first post-season berth in four years. The 41-year-old goalie was 10-6 in the playoffs.
Tampa Bay re-signed Adam Hall to a one-year contract.
Hall had seven goals and 18 points last season. The 30-year-old centre played in all 18 playoff games, finishing with a goal and four assists. He has played 508 NHL games with Pittsburgh, Minnesota, the New York Rangers, Nashville and Tampa Bay.
