TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning signed forward Jerome Samson to a one-year, two-way contract on Thursday.
Samson, 26, played in 68 games for the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League last season. He earned 27 goals with 56 points. A native of Greenfield Park, Quebec, he was second on St. John's in goals and third in points. He has played in 424 career AHL games...
A season to remember
It began as an all too regular regular season for the St. John’s IceCaps.
Up until January 2014, the IceCaps had a 16-13-3 record, including a mediocre 4-5-1 October record. It certainly didn’t give any indication that this team would play in the Calder Cup just a few short months later.
New Year, New Team
I’m not sure what they had to drink on New Year’s...
