Lethbridge Sends Ashton to Pats

(Regina Pats release) Regina Pats General Manager is proud to announce the acquisition of forwards Carter Ashton, Craig Orfino and a 3rd round pick in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft from the Lethbridge Hurricanes. In exchange, the Pats send 17 year old forward Graham Hood, 15 year old prospect Taylor Balog, a 2nd round pick in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft, as well as their 1st round pick in 2011.

Eighteen year old Carter Ashton is native of Saskatoon and was a 1st round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. This season he has 13 goals and 13 assists in 28 games with the Hurricanes.

67's Send Sointu to Sudbury

The OHL's Ottawa 67’s announced Wednesday that winger and Lightning prospect Matias Sointu was traded to the Sudbury Wolves for goaltender Francis Dupuis.

According to the Orleans Star, the trade represents an opportunity to gain more playing time for Sointu.

“Here in Ottawa, we have a solid group of young forwards and with Corey Cowick coming back in the New Year it looked like Matias wasn’t going to get the minutes he needs to continue his development,” 67's coach Chris Byrne told the Star. “In Sudbury, I think he’ll be a top-six forward and have the opportunity to develop at a faster pace. We thank him for his contribution to our team and wish him well with the Wolves.”

Report: Norfolk to Return Janus to OHL

A report on the Erie Times-News' web site states the AHL's Norfolk Admirals will return goaltender Jaroslav Janus to the OHL's Erie Otters this week.

The newspaper received confirmation of the expected transaction from Janus' agent, Craig Oster of Newport Sports Management Inc. in Mississauga, Ontario.

The report also states the Lightning are interested in signing Janus after this season.

Janus, a 2009 sixth round pick of the Lightning, began the season with Norfolk on a 25-game professional tryout contract. He has played in two of Norfolk's 10 games, accumulating a 0-2-0 record, a 1.52 goals-against average (GAA) and a .939 save percentage. Last year he posted a 25-20-4 record with Erie, along with a 3.24 GAA and a .908 save percentage. The Otters have struggled defensively this year so far, and Janus will be a welcomed re-addition.

According to the Belleville Bulls Hockey Club (OHL), the Bulls have acquired Lightning prospect Kyle DeCoste from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds for a 2011 conditional seventh round draft choice.

He has recorded two goals and three points along with 20 penalty minutes in 13 games played so far with the Greyhounds in this, his fourth OHL season.

DeCoste, who has a goal and an assist in his last two games, was taken by the Lightning in the fifth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
