Leland Irving says never mind to PTO with Tampa Bay Lightning, signs in KHL

The former Calgary Flames goaltender, who spent last season in Finland with Jokerit, has signed with Ufa in the KHL and will not be attending Lightning camp. With the depth in net already in place in the organization, the goal was likely just to get Irving in for camp to balance out the groups with six goaltenders , with no real plan to sign him to a contract or bring him into the organization long-term.

Leland Irving to join Tampa Bay Lightning on a tryout

In spite of notable goaltending depth, the Tampa Bay Lightning will have at least one interesting invitee at training camp later this month: former Calgary Flames goaltender and first round pick Leland Irving , who will attend on a professional tryout contract . Irving is a career .907 SV% goaltender on nearly 5000 AHL shots, which is far from spectacular and might suggest why he never cracked the NHL on more than a part-time basis.
