Prospect of the Week: 2-11-15

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

The Bolt Prospect of the Week for February 11, 2015 is … Anthony DeAngelo, D, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (OHL – Canada).

In Anthony DeAngelo’s first game with Sault Ste. Marie after being traded by Sarnia, the Lightning 2014 first rounder did not register a point. That was January 9.

In 11 games since that time, DeAngelo has hit the scoresheet every game, racking up 22 points over that timespan. The 5'10" New Jersey native had seven points (and a fight) in three games last week, earning him our Prospect of the Week award.

Erne had two goals on Sunday then ended the game with a charging major and a game misconduct at the 20:00 mark. Things got a bit ugly at the end. Erne said he was sticking up for a teammate by laying a big hit, then turned around and Adam Chapman had his gloves off ready to go. Erne talked about the incident on the Remparts website (click here).

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Erie Otters 1

Season totals: 39 GP, 7-16-23, -16, 64 PIM
2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

Masin has seven points in his last seven games. He’s really come on offensively in the second half of the season, as is typical for an import player in his first year.

Western Hockey League

Spokane Chiefs 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 2

C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 41 GP, 21-35-56, +8, 32 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Point created a turnover in front of the Spokane net that led to the Warriors’ second goal, but he was not credited with an assist. Moose Jaw put six forwards on the ice after pulling their goalie late in the game, but they couldn’t find the tying goal. They came close a few times, including once where Point was in front but couldn’t bat an airborne puck into the net. Moose Jaw retired Ryan Smyth’s jersey before the game. Smyth’s son was reportedly mostly interested in meeting Point because of his performance at the World Junior tournament.
