Picture of Alex Killorn. Will he test free agency or re-sign with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Will the Tampa Bay Lightning be able to re-sign Alex Killorn? We say no and he will likely test free agency in the summer.

The Tampa Bay Lightning will have some decisions to make in the offseason. They have $2.4M in Lightning salary cap space to sign a handful of players.

One of those players is Alex Killorn who currently makes $4.45M and will be a free agent this summer. Would Killorn take a hometown discount on a $2.5-$3M/year deal? But even that might too much for the Lightning to take on unless they find a way to dump salary.

What can Alex Killorn offer to teams who will look to sign him

Alex Killorn, 33, is known for his versatility on the ice, as he can play both center and wing positions. He is also recognized as a strong two-way player who can contribute offensively while also being responsible defensively.

Will a team like the Detroit Red Wings look to sign Killorn to a 3-year deal? GM Steve Yzerman knows him well from his days with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Could the Nashville Predators target Killorn at Free Agent Frenzy? They have over $13 million in available cap space to sign the forward to a contract.

Whomever Killorn signs with, it will likely not be the Tampa Bay Lightning as he will be another casualty of the NHL salary cap system.
