Lightning looking to re-sign Callahan
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Tampa Bay Lightning is looking to re-sign pending unrestricted free agent right wing Ryan Callahan past this season.

Callahan, 29, was traded to the Lightning from the New York Rangers at the March 5 trade deadline in exchange for veteran Martin St. Louis.

The pending unrestricted free agent is currently in his final year of a three-year, $12 million deal.

Callahan's agent, Steve Bartlett, told ESPN that he spoke with Bolts GM Steve Yzerman regarding an extension. According to Bartlett, Yzerman made it clear they'd like to talk about an extension.

"Yeah, we'd love to sign him," Yzerman told ESPN. "He's a good fit, a good person, a good player, has style of play that really complements our group well; hes fit in really well. So we hope to sign him. But we wont talk until after the year."

Callahan was unable to work out a contract extension with his former club, and was rumored to be asking around $6.5 million a season.

Callahan has six goals and four assists in his 14 games with the Lightning, so far this season.
