Prospect of the Week (12.5.11)

This season Bolt Prospects introduced our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions. There are no trophies or plaques, but we’re banking on a future Oscars-type awards show for it.

Quite simply, we wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospect’s achievement on the ice.

This week’s BP Prospect of the Week award goes to … Tyler Johnson, Center, Norfolk Admirals (AHL – USA)

Although undrafted, all Tyler Johnson did during his junior career was score. And play defense. And win faceoffs. And anything else his coaches asked of him. He just didn’t grow as much as his teammates, which didn’t do him any favors as he was undersized to begin with.

This week’s BP Prospect of the Week award goes to … Dustin Tokarski, Norfolk (AHL).

In his first two starts of the year, Dustin Tokarski, the Lightning’s top goaltending prospect, allowed 11 goals. In his next five games, he’s given up a total of five goals.

Tokarski earned our First Star of the Week for a 37-save shutout on Sunday in Providence, and a 20-save performance in a 1-0 loss in Albany on Friday. His 0.50 GAA and .983 save percentage for the week has helped solidify Tokarski as the Lightning’s No.3 goaltender and Norfolk’s unquestioned starter. Don’t be surprised if Admirals Head Coach Jon Cooper gives “The Tik” extra starts in the coming days and weeks as Tokarski has a history of month-long streaks like this where he is nearly impossible to beat.
