The Tampa Bay Lightning re-signed forwards Adam Hall and JT Wyman to contracts extensions on Friday.

Hall inked a one-year, one-way deal, while Wyman signed a one-year, two-way contract.

"I'm happy and excited to be returning to the Lightning for the upcoming season," Hall said. "The expectations for this year are understandably high, and I look forward to contributing where I can to help the team return to the playoffs with the ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup."

The 31-year-old Hall played 57 games last season with the Tampa Bay Lightning, collecting two goals and seven points to go along with 17 penalty minutes. The 6'3 forward ranked second in the NHL in faceoff percentage amongst players with at least 200 faceoff wins. Hall also ranked sixth amongst Lightning forwards with 89 hits.

The Kalamazoo, Michigan native was originally selected by the Nashville Predators in the second round, 52nd overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. Hall has played the past four seasons in the Lightning organization, skating in 213 games with the Bolts, recording 14 goals and 35 points. In 565 career NHL games with the Predators, New York Rangers, Minnesota Wild, Pittsburgh Penguins and Lightning, he has registered 65 goals and 143 points.

The 26-year-old Wyman played 40 games last season with the Lightning, collecting two goals and 11 points to go along with eight penalty minutes. The Edina, Minnesota native set career highs last season in games played, goals, assists, points and game-winning goals.

The 6'2 forward was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the fourth round (100th overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
