After a terrific start to the season in the AHL, defensemen Calle Rosen signed a 2 year, 1 way extension. Since it is a one way deal he will need waivers to be sent to the Marlies next year so it appears Rosen is in the plans for next year. This is a very smart signing since next year when they need to sign Matthews, Marner and more they will need to fill out the bottom of their lineup with cheap young players developed from the Marlies
With the 152nd overall pick, we select goaltender Magnus Chrona from the Naka HK of the Swedish Junior League!⚡️ Chrona appeared in 41 games, posting a 2.13 GAA and a .931 SP. Welcome to Tampa Magnus!⚡️⚡️ #tblightning#nhldraft#boltsnation#boltssocial#gobolts @tblightning
To some fans, it may seem interesting that Yzerman decided to draft 2 goalies in the 2018 draft. However, I see what he’s trying to do. In my opinion, Steve is trying to find a goalie with a lot of potential and skill. Not saying that our goalie depth is awful, but you would always love to have that other star in the organization for many reasons. I was actually surprised this decision was made. #tblightning#nhldraft#boltsnation#boltssocial#gobolts @tblightning
