The Lightning officially announced the re-signings of forward Pat Maroon and defenseman Luke Schenn on Thursday afternoon.

Maroon, a back-to-back Stanley Cup champion, signed a two-year deal with an annual average value of $900,000 while Schenn signed a one-year deal with an AAV of $800,000.

The signings were first reported earlier this month, along with the news of defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk leaving for Anaheim on a three-year, $11.7 million deal with the Ducks.

In addition to Shattenkirk, the Lightning lost forward Carter Verhaeghe, who agreed to a two-year, $2 million deal with Florida. Tampa Bay re-signed Mitchell Stephens to a two-year, one-way deal of $737,500 earlier this month.

The Lightning still aim to re-sign forward Anthony Cirelli and defensemen Erik Cernak and Mikhail Sergachev.
