Event tag that describes a prospect receiving some kind of award

Prospect of the Week: 11-24-14

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 24, 2014 is … Adam Erne, Quebec Remparts (QMJHL – Canada).

The Lightning have a key ingredient to their future success stowed away in Quebec City.

Adam Erne, one of the few true power forward prospects in the system, is too young for the AHL so the Lightning sent him back to juniors to wreak havoc on his fellow teenagers, which he is doing.

The Lightning are a smallish skill club known for their speed and tenacity. Erne (6-1, 218) will provide more size in the lineup to balance out the likes of Tyler Johnson and Jonathan Drouin. He has enough skill, however, to be a prime contributor on any line rather than a complementary player whose sole role is to win wall battles and create space.

Prospect of the Week: 11-18-14

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.

The Bolt Prospect of the Week for November 11, 2014 is … Cedric Paquette, Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL – USA).

Don’t get in the way of Dump Truck. This applies to AHL and NHL defensemen, or anyone in Cedric Paquette’s developmental path.

The hard-nosed center with the Tampa Bay Lightning isn’t supposed to be crashing through the NHL door yet. The prospect we affectionately nicknamed “Dump Truck” (because dump trucks aren’t pretty or fast, but dump trucks are strong and do the hard work) is in just the second year of his 3-year, entry-level contract.

Prospect of the Week: 11-5-14

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 5, 2014 is … Joel Vermin, Syracuse Crunch (AHL – USA).

The Syracuse Crunch needed a flood of goals in a big way on Saturday night, and Joel Vermin was happy to help open the gates.

Prospect of the Week: 10-28-14

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 October 28, 2014 is … Adam Erne, Quebec Remparts (QMJHL – Canada).

Adam Erne is turning the QMJHL into his personal playground, and littering that playground are hats. Lots and lots of hats.
