Lightning Extend Qualifying Offers to Six Players

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have issued qualifying offers to six players, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced today. There were four players who were not qualified.

Players receiving qualifying offers were forwards Brett Connolly, Cody Kunyk, Richard Panik, and Philippe Paradis. Defensemen Dmitry Korobov and Andrej Sustr also received qualifying offers.

The deadline for NHL clubs to issue offers is today. By issuing qualifying offers to the aforementioned players, the Lightning are given the right of the first refusal or draft choice compensation should the player sign an offer sheet with another NHL club.

Players who did not receive qualifying offers are defensemen Keith Aulie and Charles Landry, forward Geoff Walker and goaltender Anders Lindback. They will all become unrestricted free agents tomorrow.

AHL Game Night: 3-14-14 Bears at Crunch

Syracuse unleashes the secret weapon.

HER-2

First Period
HER Brown, (15) (Newbury, Byers), 9:50 (PP)
SYR Landry, (1) (Paradis, Gourde), 14:04

Jon DiSalvatore and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. But, who cares about that? After nearly 3 seasons in the organization, finally Charles Landry was let loose upon the league. Tonight the young defenseman finally scored his first ever AHL goal. Congratulations.

Also, as advertised, new signee Yanni Gourde had a helper in his Syracuse debut, keeping the forward at his point a game pace for the season.

Landry Provides Crunch with Depth on Defense


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Charles Landry provides the Syracuse Crunch with something coach Rob Zettler believes is critical.

The defenseman, who has spent most of the last two seasons in the ECHL, gives the Crunch a dependable option in case of injury. Zettler knows what he can expect, even though Landry has played less than a dozen games in a Syracuse sweater.

"Whenever he's been in there and given the chance to play, he's played well," Zettler said. "He does nothing but be a professional out there."

Orlando erased two deficits to push play into extra time before snapping Florida's season-opening, six-game unbeaten streak in the shootout. The Everblades managed a slight 36-31 edge in shots but were largely stymied by John Curry, netminder for the Solar Bears. Jesse Deckert was solid as well for Florida, turning aside 28 Orlando shots. The Everblades had five opportunities and Orlando six but both teams combined to go 0-for-11 with the man advantage. Danick Gauthier joined Kristers Gudlevskis on recall to AHL Syracuse prior to Friday's match. Charles Landry was back in the lineup while Dan Milan was again scratched. Florida (6-0-1, 13 PTS) and Orlando (3-3-1, 7 PTS) play again Saturday night.

Florida rode a three-goal lead it reestablished midway through the middle period, adding an empty-netter in the final minute to close out Las Vegas and extend its unbeaten streak to six games. With Kristers Gudlevksis still up with AHL Syracuse, the Everblades turned to Jesse Deckert, who stopped 22 of 25 Wranglers shots, to tend net for the fourth-straight game. Danick Gauthier, currently tied for the fourth-highest point total on the team, added a primary helper on a power play tally by Matt Pistilli, the team's and league's current top scorer, in the second period. Charles Landry had the night off while Dan Milan was inserted into the lineup for just the second time this season. Florida (6-0-0, 12 PTS) now heads home to await division rival Orlando (2-3-0, 4 PTS), whom it will square off against on Friday.
