Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Month: February

While Adam Henrich had a strong month split between Johnstown of the ECHL and Springfield of the AHL earning a post Clear Day promotion to the Falcons and defenseman Vladimir Mihalik continued his development with Prince George, one prospect has remained as steady as a rock over the past few months.
