TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed free agent forward Mitchell Chaffee to a one-year, two-way contract worth $775,000 at the NHL level, vice president and general manager Julien BriseBois announced today.

Chaffee spent the 2022-23 season with Minnesota’s American Hockey League affiliate in Iowa where he skated in 10 games and posted five goals, seven points and a plus-eight rating before a knee injury cut his season short.

During the 2021-22 season, he ranked second on the Wild for goals (23) and fourth for scoring (39 pts.).

The 6-foot-1, 201-pound Chaffee went undrafted after three seasons at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and was originally signed by Minnesota as a free agent on March 24, 2020.
