Steven Stamkos Leaves Lightning for Nashville Predators

Thank you, Stamkos. The Tampa Bay Lightning legend won’t be wearing the iconic Bolts blue next season. The Nashville Predators have signed forward Steven Stamkos to a four-year contract worth $8 million per season, as reported by TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.

After 16 seasons with the team and two Stanley Cups with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Steven Stamkos will forever live in the hearts of Lightning fans. Stamkos posted this on X the morning of July 1:

“Thank you, Tampa. I don’t have the words yet ….. I will soon. It’s still too early to process. Just wanted everyone to know how thankful we are for 16 years as a bolt. My family and I are excited for the next chapter….”

The Lightning also recently said goodbye to Mikhail Sergachev, who spent 7 seasons with the team, as well as Tanner Jeannot. Follow the Tampa Bay Lightning on Instagram for more updates, and check out the Lightning’s full pre-season schedule here.
