Cal Foote has signed a one-way contract with the Stanley Cup champion Lightning

Foote inks deal in Tampa

Cal Foote is staying put.

The restricted free-agent inked a new two-year contract with the reigning Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday.

The $1.7 million deal carries with it an annual average value of $850,000.

It's a one-way contract, meaning Foote will be paid the full amount of the contract whether he sticks with the NHL club, or is sent down to the American Hockey League.

Foote, a former Kelowna Rockets captain, played 35 games during his rookie 2020-2021 season, scoring once and adding a pair of assists.

He didn't see any action during Tampa's playoff run.
