Tampa Bay Extends Prospect Blueliner Dominik Masin

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed defenseman Dominik Masin to a one-year, two-way contract, vice president and general manager Julien BriseBois announced today.

Masin, 23, skated in 69 games with the Syracuse Crunch during the 2018-19 season, posting two goals and 12 points to go along with a plus-36 rating. He led the Crunch and ranked tied for second in the American Hockey League for plus/minus. The 6-foot-2, 198-pound defenseman also appeared in four playoff games in 2019.

The Mastec Kralove, Czech Republic native has played in 214 career AHL games, all with the Crunch over the past four seasons, notching 14 goals and 42 points. Masin set career highs for goals (nine), assists (15) and points (24) during the 2017-18 season. He was originally drafted by the Bolts in the second round, 35th overall, at the 2014 NHL Draft.

AHL Playoff Game Night: 4-25-19 Crunch at Monsters

Long offseason begins for Lightning organization.

SYR-0
CLE-3

Cleveland Wins the Series 3-1

Eddie Pasquale allowed 3 goals on 25 shots for the loss.

First Period
6:36 CLE Foudy (1), (Letestu, Milano)

Second Period
4:31 CLE Broadhurst (1), (unassisted)
18:02 CLE Foudy (2), (Milano, Wade)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Cleveland got the early goal in this one and immediately had Syracuse chasing the game. The Crunch, unfortunately, just never caught up despite putting a lot of pressure (38 shots) in Cleveland's direction, especially in the final 40 minutes.

With salary cap issues requiring changes up top, we may well see Dominik Masin and Cal Foote, among others, make the jump to the next level.

Frustrating postseason top to bottom. It hurts badly, and the Lightning organization has some serious wagon-circling to do once the aftermath of Steve Yzerman departing to Detroit shakes out. This felt like an era ending with a whimper tonight, to be honest.

NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-21-18 Lightning at Predators

Lightning youth shows up. Shows out.

TB-5
NSH-1

Louis Domingue allowed just 1 goal on 39 shots for the victory. Nice way to ease into the season.

First Period
7:18 TB Erne (1), (Volkov)
9:06 TB Erne (2), (Cirelli)
9:24 TB Katchouk (1), (Colton, Andreoff)

Second Period
8:34 NSH Josi (1), (Subban, Forsberg)(PP)
9:25 TB Andreoff (1), (Dumont)(SH)

Third Period
17:12 TB Masin (1), (unassisted)(EN)

Adam Erne and Andy Andreoff were the game's first and second stars.

After a pair of ultra flat games against Carolina to start the preseason, the Lightning youth roared to life tonight in the First Period against a veteran NHL'er-laden Predators lineup to get the 3-0 lead and never look back. Kudos to the Lightning after a performance so bad in Carolina, I didn't write a story about it (actually, a full and complete box score was never published with correct goaltender statistics, so there's that).

Mathieu Joseph was +2 with 2 penalty minutes and 5 shots in 16:49. He's having a pretty good preseason. Knocking on the door.

Slater Koekkoek was +5(!) with 1 hit and 2 blocked shots in 20:10 of duty. Dare we dream this is the year for Slater?

Cameron Gaunce had 3 shots in 21:11.

Boris Katchouk had a goal and was +1 with 2 shots and 2 hits in 14:48. Goals in back to back preseason tilts for Katchouk.

Taylor Raddysh had 1 hit in 16:08.

Kevin Lynch had 1:00 of ice time.

Matthew Spencer had 1 hit in 15:00.

Anthony Cirelli had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots and 1 blocked shot in 19:12 and he was 56% on 18 draws.

Erne had 2 goals and was +2 with 3 shots and 2 hits in 15:31. Annual reminder that Adam Erne has the goods athletically, and just needs to stay healthy.

Dominik Masin had a goal and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, and 3 blocked shots in 15:43.

Alexander Volkov had a helper and was +2 with 1 hit in 17:18.

Erik Cernak had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 20:35.

Ross Colton had a helper and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes and 2 shots in 10:18. He was also 38% on 8 draws.

NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-18-18 Hurricanes at Lightning

Woof.

CAR-4
TB-1

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

First Period
4:06 CAR Cajkovsky (1), (McKegg)
13:05 Wallmark (1), (Bean, Svechnikov)(PP)

Second Period
19:09 CAR Zykov (1), (Brown, VanReimsdyk)

Third Period
4:38 TB Joseph (1), (Raddysh, Johnson)(PP)
7:11 CAR Svechnikov (1), (DiGiuseppe, Wallmark)(PP)

Mathieu Joseph was the game's third star.

It was the first preseason game, so we should put very little weight on this one. Still, you'd have hoped for a little better with a lot of your top back end players in the lineup, but the team just lacked possession in the preseason opener.

Joseph had a goal and was -1 in 15:17 with 3 shots and 2 hits in 15:17.

Alexei Lipanov had 1 shot and was 30% on 10 draws in 9:34. I kind of expect him to get a copy of the home game and to be returned to junior expeditiously, but we'll see.

Taylor Raddysh had a helper and was -1 in 11:49.

Jonne Tammela had 1 hit in 9:19.

Dominik Masin had 4 penalty minutes and 1 blocked shot in 15:59.

Alexander Volkov had 1 shot and 1 hit in 18:40 in premier minutes with the top liners.

Gabriel Fortier was -1 with 2 penalty minutes and 2 hits in 13:16. I'd expect he also goes the same route back to junior sooner rather than later, although he got a good amount of minutes relative to more established prospects tonight.
