Prospect of the Week: 3-11-15

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 March 11, 2015 is … Brayden Point, C, Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL – Canada).

Reading junior hockey game recaps over the last decade has taught me something – it’s always hard for a visiting player to make the game star list as a visitor. It either has to be a no-doubt performance or the home team’s media has to really like the player.

Lightning prospect Brayden Point frequently falls into both categories, resulting in a plethora of game stars.
