Vasilevski, Andrei

Prospect of the Week: October 2, 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 the week ending October 2 is … Andrei Vasilevski, goaltender, Ufa Jr. (MHL - Russia).

Yes, Vasilevski won last week, too. We can’t help it; he’s good.

This past week our top overall prospect in the Lightning organization went 3-0 with a save percentage of .953 and a goals against average barely over one.
