Janus Reassigned to ECHL

The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned goaltender Jaroslav Janus from the AHL's Norfolk Admirals to the ECHL’s Florida Everblades, Lightning Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced.

Janus, 6-foot-1, 189-pounds, made his first AHL appearance of 2010-11 last Thursday in Charlotte, stopping 22 of 29 shots in a 7-6 overtime setback to the Checkers. He has posted an 8-10-0-0 record in 20 games with the Everblades this season with a 2.98 goals-against average and .910 save percentage.

Janus, a 21-year-old native of Presov, Slovakia, appeared in 13 games for the Admirals last season, posting a 7-6-0 record with one shutout, a 2.07 GAA and .922 save percentage. He led Norfolk in goals-against average and save percentage in his first season of professional hockey.

Alex Berry was the game's third star.

Norfolk had to work in Janus somewhere over this back-to-back-to-back games set, and the results were going to be unpredictable. Unfortunately, giving up 7 goals, the worst case scenario occured. I suspect Tic will be back in against Binghamton tomorrow and on Saturday.

I am heartened to see Johan Harju follow up his assist in the East's 11-8 All-Star victory on Monday night with a multi-point night in Charlotte. Big Joe hadn't had a multi-point game since November, although in fairness some of that time he was up with Tampa. I, personally, feel that it's important for Tampa Bay to keep Harju and other guys like Blair Jones rolling in Norfolk, because they'll provide depth in the case of injuries come playoff time.

Norfolk desperately needs to take these upcoming games against fifth place Binghamton, or they could really play themselves into some trouble. Right now Norfolk is in third place in the East, tied at 59 points with Charlotte with a game in hand. But, Bingo lurks 6 points back. If they were to sweep, Norfolk would find it in some deep trouble. A Norfolk sweep this weekend could really help put the Sens away. It's a crossroads of the season.
