We continue our Bolt Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for his recent contributions on and off the ice.
The Bolt Prospect of the Week for November 18, 2014 is … Yanni Gourde, Syracuse Crunch (AHL – USA).
Yanni Gourde knew he just needed to get the first one.
After recording only a pair of assists over his first 10 games this season, the Syracuse Crunch forward knew if he got the first goal more would come quickly. Gourde scored his first of the season early in the third period against the Norfolk Admirals Nov. 8, and followed it up with the eventual game-winner a little more than 10 minutes later.
