Sounds like Tanner Jeannot closing in on a two-year extension in Tampa Bay
– Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) July 15, 2023
Jeannot, who was already having a difficult campaign, ended his season with the Lightning with just 4 points, including a single goal, in 20 games. The left winger played only three playoff games, sitting out the other three, although it was later determined that this was the result of a troubling injury he’d been nursing for the past few weeks.
It’s important to note that, despite the difficult end to his season with the Lightning, it’s difficult to integrate so quickly with a team at the trade deadline, especially when it’s a well-established club that made it to the finals the previous year.
But it’s also important to remember that Jeannot was a never-drafted late bloomer who didn’t prove himself over more than one season in the best league in the world.
In his rookie season, at age 25, Jeannot scored 24 goals and added 17 assists for a total of 41 points in 81 games. As recently as 2020-2021, he was lining up with the Predators’ ECHL club-school.
If Jeannot turns out to be a flash in the pan, the Lightning will be biting their fingers for a long time… but until then, let’s give him a chance!

– He does it all!
– Very interesting reading.
The group was on the ground just a few hours in Barcelona in Sept. 2019. In a hotel suite, Jorge Mas met Jorge Messi for the first time.
Four years later, Lionel Messi became an Inter Miami player. This is the behind-the-scenes story of how it happened.https://t.co/PFvfcgBzec
