LIGHTNING SIGN TOP GOALTENDING PROSPECT TO ENTRY-LEVEL CONTRACT

MAY 1, 2021  (17H16)      COOPER GODIN
Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois announced on Saturday that the team has signed 2019 third round pick Hugo Alnefelt to a three-year entry-level contract that will begin next season (2021-22). In the meantime, Alnefelt will join the Lightning's AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch for the remainder of the season on a try-out contract.

Alnefelt, 19, spent the 2020-21 season in the SHL with HV71. In 22 games he had a record of 5-16-0, a 3.16 G.A.A., and a .904 save percentage. Because of their poor season only winning 17 games, HV71 was relegated to the Swedish second division, HockeyAllsvenskan for the 2021-22 season.

Internationally, Alnefelt has represented Sweden on several occasions, most recently at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship. In 4 games he had a record of 2-2-0, a 2.36 G.A.A., a .902 save percentage, and one shutout as Sweden finished fifth following a loss in the quarter-final against Finland. At the 2020 tournament, Alnefelt had five wins in six games helping his country bring home the bronze medal.
