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, but a player-devoted YouTube channel could be in the works.

This week’s BP Prospect of the Week award goes to … Richard Panik
, RW, Norfolk Admirals (AHL).
