It wasn't all hard work for the Tampa Bay Lightning during their time in Southwest Florida. Following Thursday's practice, the team spent some time at Fort Myers Beach to get to know each other a little bit better off the ice, enjoy the gorgeous weather, and have a little bit of fun.
Part of the team-building activities included a beach volleyball tournament which was won by Steven Stamkos, Vinny Lecavalier, Tom Pyatt and Sam Salo.
"We had a full round-robin format. Championship game was actually two-out-of-three sets," Stamkos said of the tournament. "We beat Marty (St. Louis) and Teddy (Purcell)'s team. We swept them in two sets. It was fun, though. We had a great time.
"Things like this, you don't have a lot of time usually during the season so any chance you get to be around the guys more, it is only going to benefit you."
Following the tournament, players had a yoga session on the beach.
