(VIA TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING COMMUNICATIONS) -
TAMPA BAY –The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired defenseman Brent Seabrook from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for forward Tyler Johnson and the Lightning’s 2023 second round draft pick, vice president and general manager Julien BriseBois announced. Seabrook missed the entire 2020-21 regular season and will remain on LTI for the remainder of his contract due to a hip injury.
“I’d like to personally thank Tyler for what he has meant to this organization over the past nine years since he joined the Lightning as an undrafted free agent,” BriseBois said. “He played a pivotal role in the success the team has enjoyed and will forever be remembered as a two-time Stanley Cup Champion with the Bolts. We wish him all the best in Chicago.”
