TAMPA BAY, FL-Former UAF hockey player Cody Kunyk inked a one year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning this week. Last year's WCHA player of the Year was a restricted free agent at the end of Tampa's season and did get a qualifying offer from the Lightning a week ago.
He signed a two-way deal on Tuesday. The details of his deal were not available. He'll either be a part of Tampa Bay or their AHL affiliate team the Syracuse Crunch which means he can receive two different salaries.
