Panik (pictured) earned the first First Star for a Lightning prospect this season, finishing a Belleville win with two goals and a fight. He scored his first on a penalty shot while shorthanded â€“ he sent a wicked wrist shot into the top corner off the post. For his second goal, he scored on a one-timer from the left faceoff circle, similar to Steven Stamkos (opposite side from Stamkosâ€™ office). The Bulls were up 4-0 midway through the first period in this game and held on late for the win. For highlights of this game, click here.

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.
