The 31 year old Hall had two goals, seven points and 17 penalty minutes in 57 games with the Bolts last year. He ranked second in the NHL in faceoff percentage, winning almost 60% of his draws. The nine year veteran winger also ranked sixth on the team in hits with 89.
“I’m happy and excited to be returning to the Lightning for the upcoming season. The expectations for this year are understandably high, and I look forward to contributing where I can to help the team return to the playoffs with the ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup,” said Hall.
Wyman played in 40 games for the Lightning last season and accumulated two goals, 11 points and eight penalty minutes, all career highs. He recorded his first NHL goal in December, against the Montreal Canadiens. The right winger also played 39 games with the Norfolk Admirals netting six goals and 12 points.
