Yanni Gourde on leaving the Lightning and Tampa – The Athletic

The past 24 hours have been a whirlwind for Yanni Gourde.

It started with an unforgettable phone call from GM Julien BriseBois Wednesday afternoon, eight hours before the draft Seattle Kraken expansion.

“You have been chosen,” BriseBois told the veteran striker.

Gourde, 29, said a lot of emotions hit him at once. There’s excitement for a new challenge with an expanding group, tension about his family’s next cross-country move. There is also the disappointment of leaving Lightning, his comrades who have been together for life won the Stanley Cup in a row. This is the organization that gave him an opportunity to be an untrained freelance agent in 2014. They believed in him, developed him, allowed him to grow.
