TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed center Adam Hall to a
one-year, one-way contract today, vice president and general manager Steve

“We are pleased to have Adam return to the Lightning for another season,”
Yzerman said. “His outstanding work ethic and leadership were, and will
continue to be, very important to us.”

Hall, 6-foot-3, 213 pounds, played in all 82 games with the Lightning last
season, recording seven goals and 18 points. He led the Lightning in
face-off percentage with 55 percent and ranked fourth overall with 360
face-offs won. Hall also led the team with 152 hits and was third among
forwards with 59 blocked shots. He was Tampa Bay’s nominee for the Bill
Masterton Memorial Trophy after battling his way back to the NHL in
2010-11. He was one of four Bolts to play in all 82 games. The
30-year-old veteran also played in all 18 Stanley Cup Playoff games with
the Lightning as they made it to within one game of the Stanley Cup Final.
He recorded a goal and five points during the postseason.

A native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, Hall has played in 508 NHL games with the
Lightning, Pittsburgh Penguins, Minnesota Wild, New York Rangers and
Nashville Predators. He has amassed 63 goals, 136 points and 28
power-play goals during his career. After being signed by the Bolts as a
free agent prior to the 2008 season, Hall has gone on to notch 12 goals
and 28 points in 156 games in a Lightning uniform. He has also played in
49 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, recording seven goals and 13 points.
This past season was his first appearance with Tampa Bay.

Drafted in the second round, 52nd overall, by Nashville in 1999, Hall
captained the U.S. National Team Developmental Program’s U-18 team in
1997-98 before embarking on a four-year career at Michigan State. With the
Spartans he recorded 64 goals and 126 points in 159 career games, and he
served as captain his senior season. Hall was named to the CCHA
All-Tournament Team (2000-01), the All-CCHA Second Team (1999-00) and the
CCHA All-Rookie Team (1998-99).
