(Norfolk Admirals release) The Tampa Bay Lightning, NHL parent club of the Norfolk Admirals, have recalled defenseman Mike Lundin from the Admirals, Lightning Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced today.
(Saskatoon StarPhoenix) During the next week, [Lightning 2009 first rounder] Carter Ashton will tote his Lethbridge Hurricanes hockey bag through three provinces for four games.
He'll tangle with familiar WHL foes in Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Medicine Hat. But first, the 18-year-old winger has a Thursday date with the Russians in Kelowna, B.C.
"A lot of people will be watching that game," says Ashton, who'll represent Team WHL in the finale of the Subway Super Series. "It's another step towards the process (of earning an invitation to the national junior team's selection camp)."

Boston University Terriers 6 @ Harvard Crimson 5 (OT)
C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
Season Totals: 8 GP, 5-4-9, +2, 6 PIM
Killornâ€™s unassisted goal gave the Crimson a brief 2-1 lead early in the game. He has 10 shots in his last two games. Former Lightning prospect Justin Courtnall did not play for Boston. Courtnall has no points and two penalty minutes in seven games for BU this season after playing for his father (former NHLer Geoff Courtnall) in Victoria (BCHL) last season. BU, the defending NCAA champions, are 4-7-1 on the year and in the basement of Hockey East.
No.10 UMass Minutemen 6 @ No.18 Vermont Catamounts 2
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 10 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 2 PIM
Vermont fell below .500 on the year at 4-5-1. UMass leads Hockey East and Vermont is tied for fifth. Marshall was centering Vermontâ€™s fourth line.
Omsk 7 @ Khabarovsk 1
Karri Ramo, Omsk, Win, 19/20, 1.00 GAA, .950 sv%
Season totals: 22 GP, 12-9, 2 SO, 1.95 GAA, .913 sv%
Ramo enjoyed the support of a 2 goal and 2 assist effort by Jaromir Jagr to capture his 12th win of the season. Ramo sits in second in the KHL in GAA. The Lightning's goaltending situation organization-wide is an embarassment of riches.

Season totals: 28 GP, 7-1-8, -1, 12 PIM

The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned defenseman Mike Lundin to the Norfolk Admirals, Lightning Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced today.
Lundin, a 6-foot-2, 197-pound defenseman from Burnsville, Minnesota, appeared in one game with the Lightning after being recalled last Saturday. He logged 13:29 in Tampa Bayâ€™s 4-3 victory over Atlanta last night.
Lundin has appeared in 20 games with the Admirals this season scoring two goals and nine assists. His 11 points leads all defensemen and ranks fifth overall with Norfolk while tying him for 16th in the American Hockey League in scoring among defensemen. Lundin, who also led the Admirals in scoring by defensemen last season, has appeared in 71 career AHL games (all with Norfolk) and has six goals and 36 assists in those games.
Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2
D Mark Barberio, Q: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season Totals: 22 GP, 2-13-15, +4, 22 PIM
Moncton put themselves in a 3-0 hole and could never recover. Former Lightning prospect Michael Ward finished his season with Cape Breton last season after a trade from Lewiston. He was not offered a contract by Tampa Bay, but signed with Vancouver. The Canucks re-assigned him to Cape Breton, where as a co-captain he has 15 assists (0 goals) in 17 games so far this year. He had 17 points in 30 games with the Eagles after the trade last year; 17 in 35 with Lewiston.
Belleville Bulls 0 @ Brampton Battalion 3
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season Totals: 21 GP, 4-4-8, E, 22 PIM
With Bulls: 8 GP, 2-3-5, +2, 2 PIM

Erie is on a 0-2-2-0 streak. Janus got the night off.
Guelph Storm 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 11
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 25 GP, 6-8-14, +11, 8 PIM
This is confusing. Panik was coming off a two goal game, his team scored 11, had six even strength goals, and somehow Panik goes without a point and has a team-worst minus-two rating.
Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Ottawa 67â€™s 6
LW Matais Sointu, OTT: Did not play.
Season Totals: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +7, 6 PIM
Ottawa is on a 5-0-1 streak and are now at .500 on the year.

WOR McCarthy, (2) (Zalewski, Mashinter), 18:08
NOR Syroczynski, (3) (Smolenak), 16:11
WOR Quirk, (1) (Callahan), 1:10
WOR Curadeau, (1) (Groulx, Stalock), 4:12
NOR Jones, (5) (Smolenak, Graham), 16:01
Blair Jones was named the game's third star. That's 4 goals and 12 points in his last 10 games. You wonder if and when Jones will get an NHL shot.
Norfolk drops back below .500 and now must regroup back at home in Norfolk.

Nizhnekamsk 5 @ Kazan 3
Dimitry Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, +1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
Kazionov played 11:16 in the match. Alexei Morozov had 1 goal and 1 assist for Kazan.
Stinks to give Atlanta anything, but it was important for the Lightning to get two points.
Antero Niittymaki allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the win.
TB 5:45, Veilleux 1 (Konopka, Foster)
TB 19:36, Malone 14 (St Louis, Stamkos)

Don't look now, but after going scoreless in his first 10 games of the season, Kurtis Foster has 1 goal in 3 points in the last couple of games.
