NOTE: Evgeny Artyukhin signing in Russia does not mean the Bolts have lost control of him - he is simply unsigned and likely not to play on the Tampa Bay roster this season. Timo Helbling (who played only a handful of games with the Bolts last season) has been released by the Lightning. Some of the above signings are 2-way signings, while other 2-way signings have not been chronicled.
