The Lightning and Sun Sports agreed on a contract extension that begins with the 2013-14 season and guarantees at least 70 games televised annually.

No other details were available from either the team or Fox Sports Florida, which oversees Sun Sports. But it is believed the deal is for between seven and 10 years and will pay the Lightning more than the average $6.5 million it gets from the current contract that was signed in 2000 and runs through this season.

Ratings for Lightning games have skyrocketed from .60 in 2009-10 to 1.39 in 2011-12. A ratings point equals about 18,000 homes.
