Ramo Worn Out by JYP

Lightning goaltending prospect Karri Ramo, who was selected in the 6th round of the 2004 draft, [url=http://www.sm-liiga.fi/tulospalvelu.asp?palvelu=2&raportti=29690]fell 5-0 today at the hands of JYP.[/url] Ramo stopped 43 of 48 shots in the loss (.896 sv%). For the young Finnish netminder, some solace can be taken in the way he held his team into the game even against an onslaught of JYP shots.

Henrich Returns to Springfield

After a six game stint with Johnstown (ECHL), the Springfield Falcons announced Monday afternoon that winger Adam Henrich has been recalled. [quote] The Springfield Falcons, American Hockey League affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning, today announced that left wing Adam Henrich has been recalled to the club from the Johnstown Chiefs of the ECHL. Henrich scored two goals among three points and registered 15 penalty minutes in six games with Johnstown after being assigned from Springfield on Jan. 6. The 6-4, 238-pound forward, who will turn 21 on Wednesday, has posted 16 points (6g, 10a) in 34 games with the Falcons this season. Henrich was the Lightning’s first selection (2nd round, 60th overall) in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

Falcons Whoop "Woostah" in OT

Recently recalled defenseman Doug O'Brien scored the game winning goal tonight in Springfield's 4-3 OT triumph against Worcester. The Newfoundland born blueliner's sudden death talley capped a remarkable comeback that saw the Falcons crawl out of a 2-0 first period deficit to defeat their Atlantic Division rival.

Chiefs Fall to Toledo 5-2

The bad news is that the Johnstown Chiefs lost 5-2 to Toledo tonight. The good news for Lightning prospect watchers is that JF Soucy notched 2 assists and Adam Henrich added 1 goal in the game. Henrich is now riding a three game point streak into tomorrow night's game against Wheeling.

European Prospects Update

Ahhhhh, my first European Hockey Update away from the third world dictatorship that HF has become. Lets begin: All in all, the beat goes on in Europe for the Lightning's prospects. They have some excellent overage properties like Somervuori, But and Norrena but have yet to see the explosion from youngsters like Polushin and Kazionov they might've hoped for. The exception to the rule is 2004 entry draft 6th rounder Karri Ramo, who is emerging as one of the two best young goalies in all of Finland after having a remarkable performance at Traverse City.
