We continue our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their recent contributions on and off the ice.
The Prospect of the Week for February 17, 2014 is … Brian Hart, W, Harvard Crimson (NCAA – USA).
For the third consecutive week a collegiate player is our Prospect of the Week. This week the honor goes to Harvard’s Brian Hart, a second round pick (53rd overall) of the Lightning in 2012.
Hart, a 6-3 212-pound forward out of Phillips-Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, had two goals and an assist this week to raise his season point total to 12 (four goals) in 25 games. The Maine native had a goal in Monday’s 6-2 Beanpot Consolation Game win over Boston University and followed that up with an assist in a 1-0 upset win over Clarkson on Friday. He finished his weekend with a goal in a 2-2 tie against St. Lawrence on Saturday.
