Tampa Bay is closing in on deals that could add a couple more players to the Syracuse Crunch lineup by the end of this week.

The two players are center/left winger Tanner Richard and defenseman Luke Witkowski.

Richard was a third-round pick by the Lightning in 2012, while Witkowski was a sixth-rounder in 2008.

Tampa Bay assistant general manager Julien BriseBois said final details on contracts with both should be hammered out soon.
"He's a big, strong, good defender, physically minded, physically ready to play professional hockey,'' BriseBois said. "Now, he just needs to adjust to the pace of the pro game.''

Richard was 11-51 for Guelph of the OHL.

"This year he kind of settled in,'' said Guelph coach Scott Walker, a former Syracuse Cruncher. "He has to be more committed, but he's a good player. He's one of the best playmakers in the league.''
