The Lightning got F Gabriel Dumont back, claiming him off waivers Wednesday from Ottawa.

Dumont, 27, was reassigned to AHL Syracuse, where he will provide a veteran presence. He's a potential callup option down the stretch for a bottom six role and faceoff specialist.

Rookie F Matt Peca was also reassigned to Syracuse. He had two goals and three assists (plus-6) with the Lightning this season in a 10-game callup.

The Lightning had lost Dumont on waivers earlier this season to Ottawa, and he ended up playing in 23 games for the Senators (one goal, one assist). No callups are coming in return from Syracuse, per assistant GM Julien BriseBois.
