Saint John got in the win column at the 2012 Memorial Cup by defeating WHL champion Edmonton 5-2 on Monday night. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier had a deflection for his first goal of the tournament and led his team with six hits. Minnesota prospect Charlie Coyle was first star for Saint John with two assists. The Sea Dogs’ win means there is now a four-way tie for first place in the round robin tournament. The goal is to get an automatic bye to the finals. Saint John can do that by defeating Shawinigan on Wednesday, combined with Edmonton beating London on Tuesday. Vladislav Namestnikov and London can advance straight to the finals by beating Edmonton on Tuesday and having Saint John defeat Shawinigan on Wednesday. The loser of Tuesday’s game will play the loser of Wednesday’s game on Thursday in a tiebreaker game. The winner of that game advances to the semifinals.

Prospect of the Week (5.10.12)

This season Bolt Prospects introduced our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions.

We wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospect’s achievement on the ice.

This week’s BP Prospect of the Week award goes to … Danick Gauthier, C, Saint John Sea Dogs (QMJHL).

A “bonus pick” for the Lightning, Gauthier was signed to a free agent contract by the Bolts in March while Gauthier was on his way to a career year in the QMJHL for Saint John (47-39-86). Gauthier hasn’t slowed down in the playoffs, scoring 12 times in 16 playoff games while adding seven assists.
