The Tampa Bay Lightning have agreed to terms with free agent forward Antti Miettinen to a two-year, one-way contract.

Miettinen appeared in 20 games with Ak-Bars Kazan of Russia's Kontinental Hockey League this season, recording two goals and eight points. He last appeared in an NHL game as a member of the Minnesota Wild during the 2010-11 season when he registered 16 goals and 35 points in 73 games.

Miettinen has skated in 472 career NHL games with the Wild and Dallas Stars and has amassed 89 goals and 212 points throughout his NHL career.

Miettinen has also represented Finland in international competition, suiting up for his native county on six occasions. He was named to Team Finland's Olympic roster in 2006, and most recently, in 2010, when he helped his squad bring home a bronze medal.

Miettinen was original drafted by the Stars in the seventh round, 224th overall, at the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.

TB puts Anti Miettinen on waivers. Obviously, signed from Europe.
