The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed Yanni Gourde to an ELC.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have agreed to terms with free agent forward Yanni Gourde

Gourde will be on an AHL contract for the remainder of 2013-14 season and a two-way NHL contract for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. He is expected to report to the Syracuse Crunch this week.

Gourde, 22, has skated in 25 games with the Worcester Sharks this season, posting four goals and 25 points to go along with 26 penalty minutes. Gourde's PTO with Worcester expired on Saturday, and the Lightning quickly scooped him up.

I'm quite puzzled that San Jose never offered him a deal, even an AHL one, especially in light of his 25 points in 25 games in the AHL.
