Tampa Bay did a bit of housekeeping today and they’re keeping one of their tougher customers around.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie (aka: Nacho Labrie) re-signed with the team on a one-year, one-way deal.

Last season, Labrie played 19 games with the Lightning and had two goals and an assist to go with 30 penalty minutes. At 6'2" 200-pounds, he tends to play even bigger than his size and functions as a rough customer.

He also talks a bit of a tough game as he did earlier this season when speaking about getting revenge on Philly’s Zac Rinaldo.

Oh yeah, and if you don’t understand the post title, you’ve got some Simpsons studying to do. That’s a paddlin’.
