AHL Game Night: 1-13-10 Bears at Admirals

Following the lead of the big club, the Admirals break through against the Caps' farm team.

HER-3
NOR-4

Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the win.

First Period

HER McNeill, (3) (Aucoin, Giroux), 4:21
HER Giroux, (14) (McNeill, Gordon), 7:33
NOR Parrish, (9) , 19:53

Mark Parrish and Justin Keller were the game's first and second stars. The Admirals had lost all five of their previous encounters this season to the Bears, which was a streak of futility oddly similar to the one the Lightning just broke against the Capitals. The Admirals pull into the halfway point of the season at four games under .500, and they'll be 1-2 points behind Adirondack for fourth in the division by the end of the night, tied with both Syracuse and Binghamton at 36 points.

Chris Lawrence broke a 17 game scoreless streak with his first multi-point night of the season. Way to go, Larry.

AHL Preseason Game Day: 9/27 Admirals at Bears

A couple of Admirals tryouts are looking like serious contenders to make the team.

NOR-3
HER-4 (OT)

Dustin Tokarski allowed 2 goals on 13 shots before giving way to Jaroslav Janus midway through the game. Janus allowed 2 goals on 17 shots for the overtime loss, and now the Lightning will need to make a decision whether to sign the young Slovak to an entry-level deal or send him back to Erie of the OHL for one more season.

Juraj Simek and tryouts Matt Dias and Tommy Goebel scored the Admirals' goals. Mitch Fadden, Kevin Quick, Ty Wishart (twice), and Chris Lawrence added assists.

Norfolk was outshot 30-27 in the game.

Tommy Goebel has been the story so far in Admirals camp among the tryouts. The diminutive Parma, Ohio native is entering his second year of pro hockey after splitting last season between Wheeling of the ECHL (42 points in 35 games) and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL (4 goals and 12 points in 25 games). Goebel played four years in the CCHA split between Michigan State and Ohio State, amassing 54 goals and 115 points in 147 games. Goebel could add more speed to an Admirals lineup that was one of the slowest in the AHL over the past two seasons.

Matt Dias is trying to earn a pro contract after four years with Sudbury of the OHL. Last season Dias had 31 goals and 66 points in 68 games.

Bolts Reassign Four to Norfolk

The Tampa Bay Lightning have assigned defensemen Kevin Quick and Scott Jackson along with forwards Chris Lawrence and Mitch Fadden to the Norfolk Admirals, Lightning Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced today. Fadden, a first-year pro and prolific scorer for Tri-City and Lethbridge of the WHL, was thought to have a shot at getting an exhibition game with the Lightning but that will have to wait until the Admirals pre-season begins. Jackson, Quick and Lawrence each spent the majority of last season with the Admirals, with Lawrence begining the final year of his three-year entry level rookie contract this season. With these four assignments, the Lightning reduce the size of their camp roster to 43.

Lightning prospects remaining at the 2009 Lightning training camp include goaltenders Riku Helenius and Dustin Tokarski; defensemen Victor Hedman, Matt Lashoff, Ty Wishart, and Vladimir Mihalik; forwards Steve Downie, Carter Ashton, Richard Panik, Dana Tyrell, Paul Szczechura, Martins Karsums, Radek Smolenak, Blair Jones, James Wright, Juraj Simek, and Lauri Tukonen.
