TAMPA - JT Wyman '08, a former Dartmouth men's hockey player, has re-signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League (NHL), the club announced late Friday afternoon.
Wyman, who made his NHL debut in 2009-10 with the Montreal Canadiens, signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Bolts after suiting up in 40 games a season ago.
In his first year with Tampa Bay, the former Big Green forward set new career highs in games played, goals, assists (9), points and game-winning goals. His first career NHL tally and helper came in the same game when he scored and assisted on another against his former team from Montreal on Dec. 29 at home.
Originally drafted by the Habs with the second pick of the fourth round (100th overall) in 2004, Wyman would go on to play four collegiate seasons at Dartmouth. He finished his career in the Green and White with 85 points on 41 goals and 44 assists in 123 games.
In each of his four seasons in a Big Green sweater Wyman improved his goals and points totals, culminating in his best campaign as a senior (2007-08) when he scored 15 times and added 15 assists for 30 points.
Wyman also appeared in 29 games in 2011-12 for the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL), scoring six goals for 12 points.
