The Tampa Bay Lightning has seen a lot of talent come and go, but who were some of the greatest goal scorers in Tampa Bay Lightning history?

Since the team’s inception in 1992, the Tampa Bay Lightning has seen more than its fair share of talented players come down the tunnel and take the ice. Some players have been with the team for what seems like a lifetime like Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis. Other players like Steven Stamkos and Tyler Johnson are just starting their hockey journeys and have many successful seasons ahead of them.

Everyone on the team has their own job to do. For some players, it is protecting the net against the onslaught of the opposing team. For others it is making big hits, knocking their opponents off the puck, and being the last line of defense between the blue line and the goaltender. One of the most important roles on a successful hockey team is a red hot offense who knows how to quickly and efficiently get the puck in the back of the net.

These are the players we are going to look at today. In this article, we are going to take a look at 20 of the greatest goal scorers in Tampa Bay Lightning history. There are plenty of names on this list the casual Lightning fan will remember. At the same time, there are others that only the most diehard Tampa Bay Lightning fans will be able to recall from memory.
