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 19 is … Nikita Kucherov, W, Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL – Canada)
Nikita Kucherov of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies is our Prospect of the Week for the fourth time this season, but this may have been his most impressive week of the year.
Kucherov, a 2011 second round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning, had 12 points in three games last week, including two five-point games. He has three five-point games this season.
