There has been a trade...
The Lightning have dealt overage prospect Bryce Lampman to the Dallas Stars in exchange for prospect defenseman Mario Scalzo Jr. Scalzo, 23, has 1 goal and 9 points in 15 games so far this season for Iowa of the AHL. The 5'10" 190 lbs defenseman is most well known for his brief stint in 2004-2005 with Rimouski of the QMJHL where, after being acquired at the trade deadline in his overage season, he scored 13 goals and 44 points in 23 regular season games helping the Oceanic and Sidney Crosby reach the Memorial Cup final. Scalzo Jr's best professional season came as a rookie in 2005-2006 when he posted 4 goals and 33 points in 74 games.
The trade of Lampman resolves the Admirals' issue of having one more veteran than they were allowed to dress under AHL rules.
