Seattle Kraken forward Alex Barre-Boulet will be making his way back to the Tampa Bay Lightning after getting claimed off waivers Friday.

The 24-year-old was claimed off waivers by Seattle from Tampa Bay earlier this month, appearing in two games, recording an assist while averaging 8:39 in ice time.

Barre-Boulet made his NHL debut last season with the Lightning, scoring three goals in 15 games. The Montmagny, Que., native signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Lightning in 2018 after going undrafted.
