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.

Zahn, Beukeboom Return to Junior Teams

2010 third round pick Brock Beukeboom and seventh round pick Teigan Zahn will not attend Tampa Bay's training camp this week. Both were originally on the training camp roster released to the media, but a decision was made over the course of the Traverse City prospects tournament to send Beukeboom back to Sault Ste. Marie and Zahn back to Saskatoon.

Beukeboom will join the OHL Greyhounds where he will look to build upon last year's career highs of 7 goals, 19 assists, and 26 points. The 6'2" defenseman recently was a part of Team Canada's summer development camp in preparation for this winter's World Junior Championships.

Zahn was originally drafted in the fifth round by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. It was thought he was drafted by the Bolts in 2010 to provide immediate defensive depth in the organization, either in AHL Norfolk or with the ECHL Everblades. However, barring unforeseen circumstances, he will not be signed this year and will instead play as an overager for the WHL Blades.

Lightning Sign Defenseman Landry to Entry Level Deal

Erik Erlendsson is reporting that the Lightning have signed Traverse City invitee defenseman Charles Landry to an entry level deal. Landry, who turned 19 in June, played three seasons with Drummondville in the QMJHL, including playing for current Lightning Head Coach Guy Boucher during the 2008-2009 season when Drummondville made it to the Memorial Cup. The 5'11" 187 lbs blueliner had 6 goals and 30 points in 68 games last year for the Voltigeurs. The Lightning have assigned him to Montreal of the QMJHL for more junior seasoning. The strategy of signing undrafted junior prospects is similar to the practice followed by the Detroit Red Wings organization, which refers to the signees unofficially as "bonus picks."
