Tyrell Impresses Feaster

This past weekend, Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster and Norfolk Admirals General Manager Claude Loiselle spent the All-Star break touring Western Canada watching potential and future Bolts.

Among the games the duo took in were the CHL Top Prospects Game and two games featuring 2007 second round pick Dana Tyrell. On Thursday night, Tyrell scored 2 goals in a 5-4 Prince George shootout loss to Lightning 2006 6th rounder Dana Crowley and Everett in front of Lightning leadership. After a game in Vancouver to see the Giants and Tri-City Americans on Friday, they saw Tyrell again, this time against Lightning 2007 4th rounder Mitch Fadden - a game that was a 9-0 blowout for Fadden and Lethbridge. Fadden had 2 assists in the game.

Feaster provided a quick review of the Lightning draftees for BoltProspects.
