Handful of Prospects to See Action vs. Dallas

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced its lineup for Tuesday night's exhibition game vs. Dallas, and a handful of prospects will be getting a chance to make a valuable impression on Coach Guy Boucher and General Manager Steve Yzerman.

Prospects for the 9/21 game include:

Richard Panik, W (pictured)
Johan Harju, C/W
Dana Tyrell, W
Scott Jackson, D

Panik was recently highlighted by Boucher as impressing during scrimmages and early camp drills.

Graduated (barely) prospect James Wright and overage prospects C/W Niklas Persson, D Mathieu Roy, D Michael Vernace, and G Cedrick Desjardins will also play.

Mike Smith is slated to play in net for Tampa Bay, however the Tampa Tribune's Erik Erlendsson reported on Twitter that Smith left the ice this morning with an apparent arm or finger injury.

Barberio, Giliati Score in Team Black Shootout Win

2008 draft pick Mark Barberio scored an unassisted goal 40 seconds into the 2nd half of Sunday's training camp scrimmage to give Team Black a 2-0 lead. Team Black had posted the only marker in the 1st half as 2010 1st rounder Brett Connolly and Martin St. Louis assisted on a Steven Stamkos tally. Prospect Stefano Giliati, an off-season acquisition from Toronto in the Matt Lashoff trade, opened the scoring for Team White with assists from 2006 draftee Kevin Quick and Dominic Moore. Simon Gagne then netted his first goal in a Lightning jersey, the equalizer for Team White, with assists from James Wright and 2009 1st rounder Carter Ashton.

Ashton, Juraj Simek, Niklas Persson, Connolly, and Marc-Andre Pouliot all missed shootout attempts before former Bolt and training camp invitee Eric Perrin won the match for Team Black in the shootout. Mike Smith stopped 20 of 22 for Team White, while Dan Ellis stopped 18 of 20 for Team Black.

Panik Rings Up A Deuce On Saturday

Richard Panik notched two goals leading Team White in a 6-2 victory over Team Black in Saturday's Training Camp scrimmage. It was an impressive outing for the 2009 2nd round pick, who came to training camp still without a entry-level contract and questions whether his 2010-11 destination is Belleville or Norfolk. Swedish free agent acquisition Niklas Persson also made quite an impression tallying two goals of his own for Team White. James Wright scored a goal and added an assist, building upon his team leading efforts at the recent Traverse City prospects tournament. 2007 draft pick Johan Harju added two assists for White, while first rounders Carter Ashton, Vladimir Mihalik and Brett Connolly also assisted on goals.

Prospects Dustin Tokarski and Jaroslav Janus split 20 minutes each in net for Team White. Janus stopped a perfect 5 shots in light duty, while Tokarski turned away 17 of 19 shots.
