The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-assigned right wing Kyle Wanvig to Norfolk of the American Hockey League today, Executive Vice President and General Manager Jay Feaster announced.
Wanvig, 6-foot-2, 208 pounds, played in seven consecutive games since his recall on January 5 before being scratched for three consecutive games. He scored one goal and averaged 10:09 of ice time per game while recording 12 hits and three blocked shots. He was selected to represent the Admirals in the 2008 AHL All-Star Game but missed it while he was recalled to Tampa Bay.
Prior to his recall Wanvig skated in 33 games with the Admirals, leading the team in goals (13), assists (23) and points (36). The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Calgary native was acquired by the Lightning in a 2007 trade with Atlanta, and appeared in four games for Tampa Bay last season.
