Sources say Nick Paul and the Tampa Bay Lightning are closing in on a multi year agreement. Not done yet, but the Paul extension was a priority today.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) July 1, 2022
While no deal has been reached yet, Dreger states that the Paul extension was a priority today.
Paul, 27, skated in 21 regular season games, recording five goals and nine assists for 14 for the Lightning after being acquired from the Ottawa Senators mid-season.
The Mississauga, Ont., native also played in 23 playoff games for the Lightning, tallying five goals - two of which were against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 of the first round - and four assists for nine points.
