Ben Thomas - Signs in Sweden Thomas inked a one-year contract with Leksands IF (Sweden) on Wednesday.
Impact Thomas made just five appearances for the Lightning last year, instead spending the bulk of the year in the minors with AHL Syracuse. With the Crunch, the 25-year-old blueliner notched eight points in 16 contests. At this point, its hard to see a path back to the NHL for the 2014 fourth-round selection.

Mike Condon - Joining coaching ranks Condon will be coaching at Northeastern University this season, ending his playing career.
Impact Condon didnt play anywhere last season and hasnt featured in an NHL contest since 2018-19 when with the Senators. Undrafted coming out of Princeton, the netminder appeared in 129 games for Montreal, Pittsburgh and Ottawa in which he went 45-58-17 with six shutouts and a 2.79 GAA.

Sean Day - Inks deal with Tampa Day signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Sunday.
Impact The 23-year-old has played professionally in the AHL and ECHL since the 2018-19 season, most recently producing a career-high 15 points in 29 games last year with AHL Syracuse. Given that level of production, one would assume Day would have a shot at the NHL roster this season, but the Lightning are deep on the blue line, so we wouldnt expect him to make a fantasy impact anytime soon.

JULY 30 • SYRACUSE.COM
Alex Barre-Boulet - Inks three-year pact Barre-Boulet secured a three-year, $2.275 million contract with Tampa Bay on Friday.
Impact Barre-Boulets new deal will be a two-way in the first year before converting to a one-way contract, so fantasy players can likely expect him to still end up in the minors periodically during the 2021-22 campaign. In limited action for the Lightning last year (15 games), the Quebec native registered three goals on 26 shots, including a pair of power-play tallies, while logging 15:15 of ice time per game.
