Cal Foote has signed a one-way contract with the Stanley Cup champion Lightning

Foote inks deal in Tampa

Cal Foote is staying put.

The restricted free-agent inked a new two-year contract with the reigning Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday.

The $1.7 million deal carries with it an annual average value of $850,000.

It's a one-way contract, meaning Foote will be paid the full amount of the contract whether he sticks with the NHL club, or is sent down to the American Hockey League.

Foote, a former Kelowna Rockets captain, played 35 games during his rookie 2020-2021 season, scoring once and adding a pair of assists.

He didn't see any action during Tampa's playoff run.

Gay runs to final

Kelowna’s John Gay has secured a spot in the men’s 3,000 meter steeplechase at the Tokyo Olympics.

Competing in his first Olympic Games, Gay ran in the first of three qualification heats.

His time of eight minutes, 16.99 seconds was nearly four seconds better than his best ever time recorded less than a month ago at the Canadian Trials in Montreal, but only sixth best among those in his heat.

The top three runners in each of the three heats advanced to the final with the next six best times also qualifying.

Gay had to wait out the other two heats, but, when the entire field in the final heat finished with slower times, Gay was off to the final.

Gay qualified 14th, but finished with the 12th best time.

Teammate Matthew Hughes also qualified for the final.

The 3,000 meter steeplechase final goes Monday morning at 5:15 a.m. Pacific Time.
