Tampa Bay Lightning Named Sports Business Journal 2022 Team of the Year!

The tweet says it all! Your Tampa Bay Lightning are the team of the year for 2022 in the 15th annual Sports Business Journal Sports Business Awards, announced on Wednesday in New York.

In naming the Lightning as its 2022 team of the year, SBJ writes:

"The Lightning’s off-ice success in the past year has mirrored the on-ice performance, with the franchise becoming the third team to win back-to-back Stanley Cups (2020 and 2021) since 1998. This season marked the fourth consecutive year Tampa was in the top three in overall league attendance. New season-ticket revenue totaled $5.7 million while sponsorship revenue numbers were 120% of the NHL league average, including a 10% year-over-year increase. "Another trophy we can drink out of," Lighting CEO Steve Griggs exclaimed in celebration. Reflecting on the honor, Griggs said, "We have a saying at the Lightning -- excellence with humility. Each and every day, every game, presentation, every fan experience is about excellence.""

Yes it is, Steve! Congratulations to the Bolts for yet another season of excellence, both on and off the ice!
