The good part is that the Lightning say that his lower-body injury isn't long-term. Palat has eight goals on 54 SOG and 11 assist for 19 points in 29 games this season. He's been a big part of the Lightning's deceptively deep attack.

As expected Ondrej Palat's three-year is worth $10 million deal.

He received the same contract that fellow Calder Trophy finalist and teammate Tyler Johnson signed with the Lightning this off-season. "We were almost living together, playing together, and now we have the same contract," Palat said. "It's awesome. I was happy about his deal and I'm sure he's happy about mine." He added that he feels 100 percent now after experiencing headaches as well as light and noise sensitivities from a hit in Round 1 of the playoffs against Montreal. Palat said it wasn't a concussion, but those symptoms sure sound like one.
