Cody Kunyk took part in Thursday's morning skate.

He will a restricted free agent at the end of the season, but that doesn't guarantee him any game action in Tampa Bay's last nine outings. The Lightning have been trying to acclimate him to the pro level after signing him out of college last week. "You just get to get in, feel the environment, know where to go building, get to know the players and you just get that much more comfortable and knowledgeable about what is going on when you go into camp next year," coach Jon Cooper said. "And he might play games, who knows, we may need him, but I just think, not go to in wide-eyed and wet behind the ears, to get all the experiences, so it's good for him to be here."

Tampa Bay has signed free agent prospect Cody Kunyk to a one-year deal.

The contract will expire at the end of this season, so Kunyk will be restricted free agent. He is slated to join the Lightning as a result. Kunyk notched 22 goals and 43 points in 37 games during his senior campaign with the University of Alaska-Fairbanks in 2013-14. It's unclear where he'll fit into Tampa Bay's lineup at this time.
