    Boo Nieves signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.Nieves skated with the Lightning during training camp while on a PTO, and he's now an honest member of the franchise. The 26-year-old center spent last season in the Rangers' system, and he posted 27 points over 43 games with AHL Hartford.

    Lightning's Boo Nieves: Secures PTO

    Boo Nieves agreed to a professional tryout with Tampa Bay on Friday, Bryan Burns of the Tampa Bay Lightning's official site reports.Nieves was selected by the Rangers with the 59th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft but has struggled to maintain a regular spot in the NHL. Last year, the 26-year-old center managed just four appearances with New York in which he registered two shots, four PIM and three hits while averaging 7:32 of ice time. If the Bolts do part ways with Tyler Johnson, the extra cap space could open up a roster spot for Nieves, though the taxi squad may be in his future.

The 25-year-old Nieves should remain atop the list of potential call-ups for the remainder of the year.

    Boo Nieves signed a one-year, one-way contract with the New York Rangers on Monday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports, adding that the deal is valued at $700,000.Nieves is an efficient fourth-line grinder for the rebuilding Rangers.
