This week’s BP Prospect of the Week award goes to … Alex Hutchings, Florida (ECHL).

A fourth round pick of the Lightning in 2009, Hutchings made his pro debut last year and struggled to find his groove playing against men. It isn’t abnormal by any means for players to struggle making the transition to pro, which makes the years Carter Ashton, Cory Conacher, Tyler Johnson, and Richard Panik all the more impressive.

This year Hutchings took an early demotion from AHL Norfolk and didn’t sulk. He was leading the team in scoring before suffering an “upper-body” injury on November 12. He’s spent the last three months watching hockey while trying to get healthy.

Until now.

Prospect of the Month (November)

Bolt Prospects would now like to talk turkey about the prospects who rose to the top in the month of November. We took our time to make sure this month's Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Month had spent the proper amount of time in the oven before serving him to you. We thought about giving the award to Riku Helenius of JYP, but there was not much thanks being given in the SM-liiga by his opponents after he posted a 3-1-0 record with 2 shutouts, a 0.99 GAA, and a .949 sv%. How could we give the award to a man who clearly was in no mood to share with the rest of Finland's top league. We also might've considered Cory Conacher, who had 8 goals and 13 points in 12 games, but Conacher's still a pilgrim on his way to the land where NHL entry level contracts are found.

So, we looked high and low and then decided to honor a prospect who plays his hockey in the old Massachusetts colony, not terribly far from Plymouth Rock. Novemeber's Prospect of the Month honors belong to...
