  • Lightning's Peter Budaj: Signs two-year extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/19/17) Budaj agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with Tampa Bay on Monday worth $1.025 million annually, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    With the roster freeze in place, this deal is not yet official but has been agreed to in principle, per Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times. Budaj figures to continue serving in a backup role behind Andrei Vasilevskiy but could certainly see some significant ice time if Vasi struggles as he has in the past. Another consideration with this deal is the Vegas expansion draft, as Budaj is still an option and could be selected to serve as the backup in the desert. Last season, the 34-year-old posted a 30-21-3 record, including a remarkable seven shutouts, so it wouldn't be a surprise to hear his name kicked around the Golden Knights' draft room.

    Peter Budaj: May end up back in Tampa in 2017-18

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/20/17) The Lightning are interested in bringing Budaj back for 2017-18, reports the Tampa Times.

    Budaj is an unrestricted free agent on July 1. "We were very pleased with the finish to the season Peter had, we'd very much be interested in bringing him Peter back," GM Steve Yzerman said Thursday. And Budaj himself expressed interest in returning at the end of the season. This could be a match made in heaven.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Stops 23 shots in Sunday's victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/17) Budaj allowed three goals on 26 shots in Sunday's 6-3 win against the Stars.

    Budaj wasn't perfect in this one, but he didn't have to be with the offensive support of his young teammates. He is making the league minimum in salary, but you can bet that is going to change for the 2017-18 season. Budaj will be receiving a nice raise to serve as a backup somewhere next year.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Will start Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/17) Budaj will start Sunday against the Stars.

    Budaj starting was expected as the Lightning are playing the second of a back-to-back set Sunday. He is 1-1 with an .810 save percentage in two starts against Dallas this season.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Rides offense to win over Bruins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Budaj gave up three goals on 31 shots en route to a 6-3 road victory in Boston on Thursday.

    Budaj hasn't seen a lot of run since being dealt to Tampa Bay, as this was just his fifth appearance. The win's nice for those who still own him in fantasy, but the Czech veteran's value has predictably taken a nosedive since Jonathan Quick's return made him expendable in Los Angeles.
