The Tampa Bay Lightning have added plenty to their defense this offseason and now they’re adding to their depth as well.
The team announced they’ve signed former New Jersey Devils blue liner Matt Corrente to a one-year two-way contract. Corrente spent last season in the Carolina Hurricanes organization with the AHL Charlotte Checkers. In his NHL career, he’s played 34 games with the Devils during the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons.
Corrente will likely join the Syracuse Crunch in the AHL and be on call to help out when injuries arise in Tampa Bay. After signing Anton Stralman and acquiring Jason Garrison from Vancouver, the Lightning’s top-six on defense is looking good as they’ll join Victor Hedman, Matt Carle, Eric Brewer, and Radko Gudas. Mark Barberio and Andrej Sustr will also compete for time.
