Ex-Ranger Callahan Signs Six-Year NHL Contract With Lightning

June 25 (Bloomberg) -- Ryan Callahan signed a six-year contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning, just over three months after being acquired in a trade with the New York Rangers.

Callahan, 29, had six goals and five assists in 20 National Hockey League games this past season after joining the Lightning. The Rangers, who lost in the Stanley Cup Final to the Los Angeles Kings, sent Callahan and two draft picks to Tampa Bay for Martin St. Louis in the March 5 trade.

“I am excited for this new chapter of my career,” Callahan, who became an unrestricted free agent after the season, said in a statement. “As soon as the season ended I knew it was a place I wanted to be.”

Callahan was unable to reach an agreement on a new deal with the Rangers before the trade and had been seeking about $6 million per season, the New York Daily News reported. Financial terms of his contract with the Lightning weren’t disclosed.
