Final Traverse City Statistics

Bolt Prospects has been the only site archiving the Lightning's Traverse City statistics since the team began participating in the tournament. This post is to archive this year's statistics, which come courtesy of Pointstreak, and to link to past years statistics for comparison purposes.

Feaster's Thoughts on Traverse City

Crisdotero also blogged some quotes from Lightning GM Jay Feaster today regarding the play of the team's prospects at the Traverse City tournament.

Feaster expresses disappointment at the play of goaltender Riku Helenius, citing the year he lost last season to a shoulder injury as the reason and calls Andy Rogers' tournament a mixed bag.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Feaster raves about the play of forward Radek Smolenak and admits several organizations expressed praise for Smolenak's play and lauds defenseman Mike Lundin's strong play in the tournament.

Bolt Prospects will have more on the Lightning organization's reaction to the Traverse City tournament later this week.

Injured Mihalik to Miss Lightning Camp

Damian Crisdotero reports on his blog that prospect defenseman Vladimir Mihalik has been pulled from the Lightning camp roster due to a pulled groin muscle. He will be replaced on the roster by overage prospect David Schneider.

Update:
Erik Erlendsson also indicates on his blog that part of the Lightning's decision to remove Mihalik from Tampa camp was due to Mihalik having no realistic chance of making the team at this point in his career. Ouch.
