Lightning Goalie Buys House In South Tampa

Our Tampa Bay Lightning goalie has bought a new house in south Tampa. Andrei Vasilevskiy, also known as the Big Cat purchased this home in South Tampa for $8.5 million. The house has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It is 5,196 square feet and is located Near Ballast Point in South Tampa. In March Vasy put up his house for sale that he purchased in November of last year for $3.5 million. That house is also located in South Tampa and has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. That house was 3,555 square feet so obvious he needed a little bit more room for his new house. I’m just glad the Big Cat is staying in Tampa, which means only good things for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He has become one of if not the best goalkeepers in the National Hockey League. He has helped the Tampa Bay Lightning win two Stanley Cups the first one coming in 2020 and then they went back-to-back with another one in 2021. They went back in 2022 before falling to the Colorado Avalanche. During the Lightning's 2020 Stanley Cup victory the Big Cat won the Conn Smythe trophy, which is the MVP of the playoffs. The Lightning goalie has also won the Vezina trophy which is awarded to the league’s top goalkeeper that year. The reason why he is called the Big Cat is because of his size and his calmness under pressure. The Lightning's Success Since Becoming A Franchise The Lightning's first season was in 1992.
