The Tampa Bay Lightning re-signed forward Tye McGinn to a one-year, two-way contract on Thursday.

McGinn, 27, skated in 21 games with the Lightning's AHL affiliate in Syracuse, N.Y. last season, scoring 10 goals and nine assists to go along with 16 penalty minutes.

McGinn missed most of the regular season due to injury. Four of his 10 goals came while on the power play. McGinn also skated in 22 Calder Cup playoff games, recording five goals and 16 points.

The 6-foot-3, 218-pound forward has appeared in 256 career AHL games over five seasons, collecting 76 goals and 142 points.

In 89 career NHL games, including two with the Lightning during the 2015-16 season, McGinn has nine goals and 17 points to go along with 44 penalty minutes.

McGinn was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the fourth round in 2010.
