As rumored weeks ago, the Lightning have signed Finnish netminder Fredrik Norrena to a one year contract.

Norrena, 32, recorded 37 saves in a 5-0 victory against Canada in the bronze-medal game. He led the tournament in goals-against average (1.11), save percentage (.951) and shutouts (three), and also appeared in two games for the silver medal-winning Finns at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Italy, recording a pair of shutouts.

...

Norrena, selected in the seventh round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, has a 9-3 record (including seven shutouts) in 12 international starts for Finland in the Olympics (2006) and World Championships (2002, 2004-06).

Of course, this does not end the Lightning's quest for goaltending help and I expect another signing or player movement. Just don't look for hte big-name acquisition that everyone has been expecting.
