    Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch scored what turned out to be the game winner on a screened shot from the point on the power play early in the third period and the Attack held off the top-seeded Majors to win 3-2 and tie their OHL Finals series at three games each. It was the first career playoff goal for Schemitsch, who had one goal in the regular season. Michael Zador sat backup to Jordan Binnington in Game 6. Zador had started the last three games, but was pulled in Game 5 after allowing two goals on six shots. Scott Stajcer, who has been the Attack's starter for most of the playoffs, replaced Zador in Game 5, but was in the bleachers for Game 6. Binnington hadn't started a game since March, but was second star Thursday night. Game 7 will be in Mississauga Sunday afternoon. (OHL photo)

    Last night CapGeek.com reported Lightning prospect Richard Panik was signed by Tampa Bay to a standard three year entry contract. The Lightning made the signing official today.

    Panik, 20, was surprisingly sent back to the Ontario Hockey League after training camp last fall despite being eligible to play for AHL Norfolk. It was later revealed he was sent back with instructions to play at a higher level, and Panik did just that.

    The Slovakian native scored a career high 27 goals (many in highlight-reel fashion) and 56 points in 51 games for Belleville and Guelph. As captain of Slovakia's World Junior Championship entry, he led the team with seven goals and nine points in six games. He had five points (two goals) in seven games at the WJCs in 2009.

    He again was eligible to join Norfolk after Guelph was eliminated in the OHL playoffs, but the 2009 second round pick of the Bolts chose to return home in an attempt to make the Slovakian World Championship roster for the second year in a row. Since Slovakia was the tournament host, the team loaded up with veterans and Panik was among the last cut from the team. He had two assists in six games played in the men's tournament a year ago as a teenager.

    Panik, when driven, can be an offensive force in pro hockey and could flirt with a possible position on the Lightning next fall. He has NHL size (6'1" 218), skating, hockey sense, and shot. He has to put it all together and do it consistently. His mean streak/arrogance could be his most valuable asset, too. His biggest "weakness" is his inconsistent work ethic, which combined with some perceived character issues was why he fell to the second round in 2009.

    With Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman's patient approach, one would expect Panik to begin next year in the AHL and work his way into an impact role with the Admirals before being considered for the Lightning.

    Here's a few Panik highlights from his junior career:

    Former Seattle Thunderbird Jacob DeSerres stopped all 17 shots he faced and five different Sea Dogs scored as St. John won Game 3 of their QMJHL Finals series with Gatineau, 5-0. The game was 0-0 until the Sea Dogs scored as the first period buzzer sounded. The Olympiques could never recover. Likely 2011 top-5 pick Jonathan Huberdeau was First Star with a goal and six shots. DeSerres (Flyers) split time in the Seattle nets with Lightning prospect Riku Helenius in 2007-2008. The overager was signed this year by St. John and went 27-3 in the regular season. He’s 10-2 in the playoffs. Game 4 is Wednesday in Quebec.

    Lightning prospect Michael Zador, who had only dressed as backup once in the Attack’s last several games, was the surprise starter for Owen Sound Friday night in a must-win situation. Though he allowed five goals, Zador did pick up the win when the Attack’s Matt Petgrave scored on the first shot of overtime. Owen Sound had a 5-3 lead entering the third period before being outshot 17-7 and outscored 2-0 to send the game to an extra period. Geoffrey Schemitsch was scoreless for the third straight game, but was plus-1 for the victors. Game 4 is Sunday in Owen Sound with Zador the likely starter - though one never knows with Owen Sound. Before Friday, he hadn’t started a game since Game 1 of their second round series with Plymouth. Scott Stajcer, who had been starting for the Attack, didn’t even dress Friday. Owen Sound’s coach, Mark Reeds, has juggled his three goalies all playoffs. He was named OHL Coach of the Year in April.
