The Tampa Bay Lightning, who are still looking at a deal for forward Steven Stamkos, have made a signing prior to Friday's NHL Entry Draft.

Defenceman Eric Brewer has agreed to a four-year deal with the club that will pay him just under $16 million.

"We are very pleased to get Eric re-signed today," general manager Steve Yzerman said in a statement.  "He was an important part of our team after being acquired at last year's deadline and he played a key role in the playoffs both on and off the ice."

The 32-year-old, who recorded nine goals and seven assists in 76 games last season with the St. Louis Blues and the Lightning, was set to become a free agent on July 1.

"I'm happy to be a part of the Lightning going forward," Brewer said.  "The organization is clearly moving in the right direction and I'm proud to be a part of it."

Brewer, who won a gold medal with Canada at the Olympics in 2002, has 65 goals and 145 assists in 758 career games.
