Admirals Re-Assign Janus and Hutchings to ECHL

The Norfolk Admirals have announced the re-assignment of goaltender Jaroslav Janus and forward Alex Hutchings to Florida of the ECHL. The two Lightning prospects join Mitch Fadden in the Everblades lineup.

Janus' re-assignment was inevitable, with Dustin Tokarski and Cedrick Desjardins firmly implanted between the pipes in Norfolk. Hutchings and Fadden heading to the Coast is a mild surprise, however.

Bolts Send 12 Prospects to Norfolk; 21 Total Players

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have trimmed their roster by 21 players today, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced. The team now has 28 players in camp. All 21 players will report to the Norfolk Admirals training camp, which begins on Tuesday.

The prospects that were reassigned to Norfolk include forwards Mitch Fadden, Stefano Giliati, Alex Hutchings, Juraj Simek, and the barely graduated James Wright and Paul Szczechura; defensemen Mark Barberio, Radko Gudas, Scott Jackson, Vladimir Mihalik, Kevin Quick, and Ty Wishart; and goaltenders Jaroslav Janus and Dustin Tokarski.

Overage prospects cut from the Lightning training camp include forwards Mike Angelidis, Alex Berry, Mitch Fritz, Blair Jones, and Niklas Persson.

Forwards Matt Fornataro and Tim Marks, who were invited to the Tampa camp as try-outs, have AHL contracts with the Admirals and will join the Lightning organizational players for the opening of the Norfolk training camp on Tuesday.

Angelidis, Fritz, Jones, Mihalik, Simek, and Szczechura must all clear waivers before their reassignment to Norfolk is complete.

Panik Rings Up A Deuce On Saturday

Richard Panik notched two goals leading Team White in a 6-2 victory over Team Black in Saturday's Training Camp scrimmage. It was an impressive outing for the 2009 2nd round pick, who came to training camp still without a entry-level contract and questions whether his 2010-11 destination is Belleville or Norfolk. Swedish free agent acquisition Niklas Persson also made quite an impression tallying two goals of his own for Team White. James Wright scored a goal and added an assist, building upon his team leading efforts at the recent Traverse City prospects tournament. 2007 draft pick Johan Harju added two assists for White, while first rounders Carter Ashton, Vladimir Mihalik and Brett Connolly also assisted on goals.

Prospects Dustin Tokarski and Jaroslav Janus split 20 minutes each in net for Team White. Janus stopped a perfect 5 shots in light duty, while Tokarski turned away 17 of 19 shots.
