|(6/24/16) Witkowski was re-signed by the Lightning on Friday, earning a one-year, two-way deal.|
Tampa selected Witkowski with its sixth-round (160th overall) pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He played extensively with AHL Syracuse last season, and delivered three goals, 11 assists, and a plus-2 rating in 70 games. The 26-year-old has a bit of a mean streak, having also warmed the penalty box for 166 minutes over the course of the minor-league campaign. Witkowski was an injury call-up option for the Bolts in 2015-16, ultimately appearing in four games, and he should be set for a similar role next season since he's still on a two-way contract.
