“We are pleased to have B.J. with the Lightning organization for another two years,” Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said in a press release. “He has proven to be a hard-nosed right winger and reliable penalty killer, as well as a very popular teammate of outstanding character.”
In 30 games this season Crombeen has seven points, 86 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating.
The 27-year-old was originally acquired by the Lightning from the St. Louis Blues last July.
“I am very thankful to the organization for giving me the opportunity to re-sign for two more years,” Crombeen said. “I am very excited to move forward with the group we have and chase a spot in the playoffs.”
The Denver native has appeared in 318 career NHL games with the Lightning, St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars, collecting 28 goals, 63 points and 666 penalty minutes.
