Goal No.15 for Killorn tied his career high set last year, and his 30th point established a new career high for the senior. He has improved his point totals every year: 14, 20, 29, 30 (and counting). Last year’s 29 points were scored in 34 games.

Prospect of the Week (2.6.12)

This season Bolt Prospects introduced our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions. There are no trophies or plaques, because the fame that comes with this award is too big for a mantle or wall.

We just wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospect’s achievement on the ice.

This week’s BP Prospect of the Week award goes to … Alex Killorn (Harvard, NCAA).

Yes, again. He’s good.
