The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed forward Carter Verhaeghe to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Friday.

Verhaeghe recorded 34 goals and 82 points in 76 games with the Syracuse Crunch last season in the American Hockey League. The 23-year-old set career-highs for games played, goals, assists and points while also leading the Crunch in points and assists during the 2018-19 season.

During his five seasons in the AHL, the Toronto, Ont. native has posted 73 goals and 175 points in 211 career games with the Crunch, Bridgeport Sound Tigers and Toronto Marlies.

Verhaeghe was acquired by the Bolts from the New York Islanders in exchange for goaltender Kristers Gudlevskis on July 1, 2017.
