AHL scoring champ Verhaeghe re-signs with Bolts

The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed forward Carter Verhaeghe to a one-year, two-way contract.

Verhaeghe, 23, won the AHL’s scoring title in 2018-19 when he recorded 82 points in 76 games with the Syracuse Crunch. Verhaeghe also owned a share of the league lead with 34 goals, and posted a plus-26 rating as well.

Verhaeghe added one goal and five assists in four Calder Cup Playoff games.

A Toronto native, Verhaeghe has tallied 73 goals and 102 assists for 175 points in 211 career AHL contests with Syracuse, Bridgeport and Toronto.

Originally a third-round selection by Toronto in the 2013 NHL Draft, Verhaeghe was acquired by the Lightning from the New York Islanders in exchange for goaltender Kristers Gudlevskis on July 1, 2017.
