Somppi will start the 2020-21 campaign on loan with the Lahden Pelicans (Finland).

Somppi saw action in 45 games with AHL Syracuse last year, garnering five goals and 13 helpers, but he wasn't able to earn a call up to the NHL. The 22-year-old center will likely join the Lightning for training camp ahead of next season but will be hard-pressed to secure a spot on the 23-man roster.
