Prospect of the Week: 11-24-14

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 November 24, 2014 is … Adam Erne, Quebec Remparts (QMJHL – Canada).

The Lightning have a key ingredient to their future success stowed away in Quebec City.

Adam Erne, one of the few true power forward prospects in the system, is too young for the AHL so the Lightning sent him back to juniors to wreak havoc on his fellow teenagers, which he is doing.

The Lightning are a smallish skill club known for their speed and tenacity. Erne (6-1, 218) will provide more size in the lineup to balance out the likes of Tyler Johnson and Jonathan Drouin. He has enough skill, however, to be a prime contributor on any line rather than a complementary player whose sole role is to win wall battles and create space.

Lynch Adds Depth, Versatility to Syracuse


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Kevin Lynch’s goal was to catch on with an American Hockey League team.

Lynch, a former Columbus Blue Jackets second-rounder, split his rookie season between Toledo and Evansville of the ECHL, but believed he could make the next step. After posting six points in nine games with Florida, Lynch got the call saying he had been offered a professional tryout with the Syracuse Crunch last week.

“You have some idea in your head ‘Maybe if I play well at the beginning of the season, I’ll get called up this month or this month,’ but you have no idea how the season is going to go,” Lynch said. “I was surprised and really happy at the same time.”

Prospect of the Week: 11-18-14

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 November 18, 2014 is … Yanni Gourde, Syracuse Crunch (AHL – USA).

Yanni Gourde knew he just needed to get the first one.

After recording only a pair of assists over his first 10 games this season, the Syracuse Crunch forward knew if he got the first goal more would come quickly. Gourde scored his first of the season early in the third period against the Norfolk Admirals Nov. 8, and followed it up with the eventual game-winner a little more than 10 minutes later.
