Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman has sold his Davis Islands mansion — and another Bolt is moving in.
Lightning defenseman Daniel Girardi and his wife, Pamela, paid $3 million for Yzerman’s home at 44 Martinique Ave., according to a Hillsborough County deed filed Tuesday.
A Lightning spokesman declined comment.
Girardi signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Lightning on July 1. Yzerman’s home was listed for sale on June 22 and went under contract within 14 days, said Jennifer Zales, an agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Tampa.
The home originally went on the market in November 2016, around the same time Yzerman purchased a condo on Bayshore Boulevard. Zales re-listed the home at $3.45 million with what she described as “expert marketing, staging and pricing strategies” in a statement.
“This is a strong sale for a canal waterfront property on Davis Islands,” Zales said, “and I was pleased to provide a favorable outcome for my sellers.”
The home is 6,265 square feet and was built in 2007. Yzerman paid $2.43 million for it in 2010. The home did not clear its pre-recession price — it had sold for $3.44 million in December 2007, according to property records.
