Ex-Bolt Watch (Updated)

According to TSN.ca, former Lightning goaltender Sean Burke has retired.

Yahoo! Sports is reporting former Bolt Jassen Cullimore has been invited to the Red Wings' training camp. Cullimore and Nolan Pratt were rumored to be a considerations for the Lightning's No.6/7 defenseman spots before Tampa Bay decided they'd let younger players battle it out.
