“I'm not going to do the GM's job by any means but if there are certain players in here not willing to compete then something has to happen,” he said. “We're not good enough.”

D Jake Dotchin, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 3 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 4 PIM

Barrie scored with 30 seconds left in the game to send the contest to overtime. Lightning prospect defenseman Jake Dotchin was not on the ice for the game-tying goal. Jets first rounder (2011) Mark Scheifele, who “should” be in an NHL camp right now, had a goal and an assist for Barrie, but did not convert his shootout attempt on Rangers pick Jordan Bennington. Bennington, as longtime Bolt prospects followers will remember, was a tandem-mate of former Lightning prospect Michael Zador when Owen Sound won the OHL championship. Zador, who was drafted ahead of Jaroslav Janus in the 2010 draft, appears to be out of hockey now.
