TSN and various news outlets are reporting the Tampa Bay Lightning have signed unrestricted free agent Brad Lukowich to a three-year contract.

Lukowich, 30, played for the Lightning during the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons, helping the team to back-to-back Southeast Division titles and the 2004 Stanley Cup.

"Brad Lukowich is a warrior," Lightning general manager Jay Feaster in a Lightning press release. "He plays the game with his heart on his sleeve and he does whatever it takes to win. He knows our system, he knows our core personnel, he knows how we do things in Tampa and what we expect from our players, and he is a winner. He is also a very good teammate and a popular player in the locker room. He has personality and spirit and old-school flair about him. We like everything about him and we are thrilled to welcome him back to our hockey team."
