Prospect of the Week: October 9, 2012

This week we continue our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their recent contributions on and off the ice.

The envelope, please.

The Prospect of the Week for October 9 is … Cedric Paquette, Center, Blainville-Boisbriand (QMJHL – Canada).

Sorry, Andrei Vasilevski, you can’t win every week.

Despite Alex Killorn’s hat trick in Syracuse’s final preseason game, this week’s award goes to 2012 fourth round draft pick Cedric Paquette. Vasilevski had won the first two weekly awards this season.
