The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed defenceman Daniel Walcott to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced on Thursday.

The five-foot-11, 174-pound defenceman played in 62 games with the AHL Syracuse Crunch this past season, recording five goals and 16 points with a plus-5 rating. He also appeared in seven Calder Cup playoff games in 2018.

A native of Ile Perrot, Que., Walcott has played in 180 career AHL games with the Crunch and Hartford Wolf Pack, amassing 11 goals and 44 points.

The Lightning acquired Walcott’s rights from the New York Rangers in June 2015 in exchange for a seventh-round pick in 2015.
