  • Lightning's Gabriel Fortier: Signs one-year contract

    Fortier, who was set to become a restricted free agent this summer, inked a one-year, two-way contract with Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

    Fortier had 11 goals and 29 points in 67 contests with AHL Syracuse last season. The 23-year-old has also contributed a goal in 11 career NHL outings. He might compete for a roster spot with the Lightning out of training camp, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him spend the majority of the 2023-24 campaign in the minors.

  • Lightning's Gabriel Fortier: Poised to be 13th forward

    Fortier worked in with the offensive lines through practice on Tuesday and looks set to make the Lightning as the 13th forward, reports

    Fortier was drafted by the Bolts in the second round in 2018 and is best known as a menace on the forecheck. The 22-year-old winger got into 10 NHL games with the Bolts last season and scored one goal. Fortier is a solid skater who plays a physical game, so his game is best-suited for the Bolts' bottom six. Hits may eventually be his fantasy calling card.

  • Lightning's Gabriel Fortier: Promoted from minors

    Fortier was called up from AHL Syracuse on Monday.

    Fortier could be tasked with immediately jumping into the lineup against St. Louis on Tuesday after Mathieu Joseph (undisclosed) was labeled doubtful. In 17 minor-league contests with the Crunch, the 21-year-old Fortier garnered four goals and seven helpers. If he can bring that offensive touch to the NHL level, the winger could offer solid fantasy value.

  • Lightning's Gabriel Fortier: Inks entry-level deal

    Fortier agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

    Fortier -- who was drafted by the Lightning in the second round of the 2018 NHL Draft -- has racked up 14 goals and 28 points through the first 34 games of the year with QMJHL Baie-Comeau. If the 18-year-old continues to produce at that rate, he could force the team to give him a good hard look at training camp next season.
