Bolt Prospect of the Week

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 the week ending October 6 is … Mitchell Stephens, W, Saginaw Spirit, OHL.

When Mitchell Stephens was drafted with the Lightning’s top pick this summer, fans looked at his numbers and shrugged. That’s it?

Stephens posted 22 goals and 48 points in 62 games for the Spirit, with a minus-17 rating.

Perspective, people.

Bolt Prospect of the Week: 9-27-15

We continue our Bolt Prospect of the Week award this season, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for his recent contributions on and off the ice.

The first Bolt Prospect of the Week for the 2015-2016 season, for the week ending September 28, is … Matthew Peca, C, Tampa Bay Lightning/Syracuse Crunch.

The last Lightning prospect to wear No. 63 as a camp number turned out to be pretty good at the hockey, and the latest prospect to wear it is off to an impressive start.

Tyler Johnson wore 63 before switching to his customary No. 9, then was a Calder Trophy finalist for the NHL rookie of the year. A year later he was a playoff hero, helping the Lightning to a Stanley Cup Finals berth before breaking his wrist and playing the final series significantly limited.

Matt Peca was playing center for Quinnipiac University when Johnson was proving NHL doubters wrong two years ago. Two weeks ago he was lighting it up for the Lightning in their prospect tournament and took that momentum into the Lightning’s main camp and preseason games.

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 April 14, 2015 is … Jonathan Marchessault, W, Syracuse Crunch (AHL).

The morning after registering a career-high four points in a come-from-behind win over Bridgeport, Jonathan Marchessault was on a plane destined for Tampa Bay.

Prospect of the Week: 4-1-15

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 April 1, 2015 is … Cameron Darcy, C, Sherbrooke Phoenix (QMJHL – Canada).

The QMJHL’s second season started last week and Cameron Darcy began with a bang.

The Lightning’s seventh round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft had a hat trick and five points in Game 2 of Sherbrooke’s first round series against Charlottetown. The Phoenix had lost the first game by a large margin and were sitting on the cliff of falling down 2-0 in the series at home. Darcy was named the game’s first star.

The Boston native followed up his Game 2 performance with two more goals in Game 3, a loss by the Phoenix on Prince Edward Island. His two goals gave him five goals and seven points in two games, and our Bolt Prospect of the Week award.
