Tampa Bay Makes Move for Cap Relief

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired goaltender Mike Condon and a 2020 sixth-round draft pick from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for forward Ryan Callahan and the Lightning’s fifth-round selection in the 2020 NHL Draft, vice president and general manager Julien BriseBois announced today.

Condon, 29, has played in 129 career NHL games over the past four seasons with the Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens, posting a record of 45-58-17 to go along with a 2.79 goals-against average and .905 save percentage. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound goaltender set career highs for games played (55) and wins (21) during his first season in the league in 2015-16 while with the Canadiens. Condon recorded five shutouts and a 19-14-6 record with Ottawa during the 2016-17 season.

The Holliston, Massachusetts native appeared in two games with Ottawa last season, missing the majority of the year with a hip injury. Condon also made one appearance for the Belleville Senators of the American Hockey League in 2018-19.

Condon went undrafted and was signed as a free agent by Montreal on May 8, 2013.
