*Atlanta Thrashers defenseman Grant Lewis (Upper St. Clair, PA), has not been tendered an offer from the Thrashers to this point, according to a source close to Lewis.
The Thrashers have until July 1st to tender an offer.
The former 2nd round pick in 2004, appeared in one game this season with the Thrashers.
At 6-4, 205 lbs, Lewis, 24, is regarded as a defensive defenseman and will draw some interest league wide with the Tampa Bay Lightning high on him. They could be a potential landing spot.
