Thursday's Superleague Scores

[i]Note: Apologies for the lateness of these game recaps. Last season the Russian box scores would be updated by 1-2pm ET the day of games but early this year it's been like pulling teeth to get timely information. If only every nation's league had a website as easy to use as the Swedes or the Finns do, we'd be golden.[/i] Khimik defeated the Soviet Wings 3-2 but unfortunately [url=alexander-polushin]Alexander Polushin[/url] was again a scratch. Dimitri Kazionov was scoreless as Kazan and Ufa battled to a 2-2 tie. [url=vasily-koshechkin]Vasily Koshechkin[/url] rode the bench as Togliatti fell to Nizhnekamsk 2-0 with Mike Fountain in net. Albert Vishnyakov was a scratch as Dynamo beat Chelyabinsk like they were owed some money 6-2. [url=denis-kazionov]Denis Kazionov[/url] was scoreless in Tver's 5-3 loss to Magnitogorsk. Alexei Glukhov failed to find the scoresheet in Cherepovets' 6-2 pummelling at the hands of Chekhov. Anton But scored SKA's final goal as St Petersburg fell to CSKA 5-3.

SM-liiga Opens

The Finnish SM-liiga started play today, with Ilves Tampere beating cross town rival Tappara on the strength of a 40 save shutout by Tuukka Rask. Best of luck to Lightning goaltender [url=riku-helenius]Riku Helenius[/url] in getting off the bench with Rask in front of him.

Post-Traverse City News

With the Traverse City prospects tournament complete and Lightning camp underway, Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster was kind enough to share the following information with Bolt Prospects concerning Lightning prospects: First, tryout center and former Chicoutimi Sagueneen (QMJHL) David Desharnais has earned an ECHL contract with the Johnsontown Chiefs and will be attending the Springfield Falcons AHL training camp starting September 24 so the organization can determine if an AHL contract offer is in order. Also, in the category of "News No Lightning Fan Wants to Hear," Andy Rogers suffered an injury while playing in Michigan. Rogers missed most of last season with Prince George of the WHL after having surgery on his ankle. However, it is not Rogers' ankle, but a hip-flexor that has the former first rounder listed as day-to-day. Feaster doesn't expect Rogers to hit the ice at Lightning camp until sometime next week. Overall, the GM was pleased with a number of Lightning prospects in Michigan. While no forwards currently under contract with the Lightning overtly helped their cause, Feaster singled out unsigned Owen Sound Attack (OHL) winger Marek Bartanus for his good play. Also highlighted for their good play were the goaltenders, Riku Helenius and Karri Ramo ("especially Ramo"), and defensemen Vladimir Mihalik, Matt Smaby, and Rogers before he was injured. Feaster also confirmed that winger Stanislav Lascek injured his hamstring in the first game of the tournament and was sent back to Tampa for rehab.
