Panik has a modest two game point streak, but is plus-4 during that time and plus-6 over his last three games.

The Colts came out strong in the third, scoring four times – including Hutchings’ fifth of the season to tie the game at 15:29. Alexander Burmistrov (2010 draft) scored with 31 seconds left to give Barrie the win. Michael Zador sat for the fourth straight game for Oshawa in favor of fellow OHL first rounder Kevin Bailie. The Generals coaching staff said this week in the papers their goaltending has been “okay” so far this year, but it doesn’t appear Zador, who started the year as the No.1, has been okay enough to get his job back. Perhaps Oshawa’s meltdown in Barrie will give him another chance.

CHL Game Night: 10/3

Ashton has five goals in his last three games ... The Soo keeps rolling ... Hutchings vs. Sointu.

Not the return to the WHL Lightning first rounder Carter Ashton was hoping for.

CHL Game Night: 9/25

Not a great night statistically for Lightning prospects.

CHL Game Night: 9/24


Erie Otters 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 8
C Richard Panik, WSR: 2-0-2, , +2, 0 PIM, *Third Star*

Panik scored his first OHL goal as the second period was coming to a close, then opened the scoring for the third period. He earned Third Star honors for his efforts. With all the stars in the Windsor lineup at last, including the surprise return of Scott Timmons (Panthers), it was undrafted Justin Shugg with a hat trick, two assists, and a plus-four rating for Windsor to lead the offensive show.

Guelph Storm 4 @ Barrie Colts 6
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
Season totals: 3 GP, 2-3-5, +2, 0 PIM

Hutchings, who had 34 goals last season, scored his first two of the year to help Barrie to a 6-4 win over Guelph. Hutchings’ second goal came while shorthanded.

Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 5 @ Peterborough Petes 3
RW Kyle DeCoste, SSM: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

After being the worst team in the OHL last season, the Greyhounds are off to an impressive 3-0 start. DeCoste was back in the lineup for the Soo (still no report as to why he missed the second game), but did not register a point. SSM overcame a 2-0 deficit starting the second period to take the win.

Panik Returns to Spitfires

The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned right wing Richard Panik to the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League today, Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton announced. The Lightning now have 42 players remaining in camp.

Panik, 18, played in two preseason games with the Lightning, recording two shots on goal.

CHL Game Night: 9/17

Ontario Hockey League

Owen Sound Attack 1 @ Barrie Colts 9
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-1-1,+1, 0 PIM

The Eastern Conference favorite Colts started their season off with a bang by crushing Owen Sound 9-1. The game was well out of hand by the time the third period started as the Colts were sitting back on an 8-1 lead. Hutchings, who has led the Colts in scoring the last two seasons, had a relatively quiet opener, notching just an assist. Luke Pither (undrafted) had 4 goals for Barrie.

Defending OHL and Memorial Cup champion Windsor also started their season Thursday, but a depleted Spits squad lost 6-5 to rival Plymouth in a shootout. Windsor’s Richard Panik was in Tampa preparing for tonight’s exhibition game for the Lightning. Both Barrie and Windsor are predicted to run away with their respective conference titles.

Prospects and Stars to Highlight Lightning Pre-Season Home Opener

Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune has released the roster for the Tampa Bay Lightning's only pre-season home game Friday night against the Atlanta Thrashers. 2009 1st round draft picks Victor Hedman and Carter Ashton highlight six prospects that will get important starts in a star-filled lineup in front of an expectant home crowd. After playing 27+ minutes against Dallas Wednesday night, Hedman will get a chance to showcase why he was the #2 overall pick this summer. Ashton will line up on right wing alongside franchise center Vincent Lecavalier and Alex Tanguay on what presumes to be Tampa's top line. A heady start for the young power forward whom most believe is headed back Lethbridge for one more year of juniors. Forwards Paul Szczechura, Richard Panik and Blair Jones get their second consecutive starts after playing Wednesday against the Stars. Jones tallied the go-ahead goal in the third period before the Bolts succumbed to a shootout loss. Prospect goaltender phenom Dustin Tokarski will relieve Mike Smith for the third period and demonstrate to the home crowd as to why he won the 2008 Memorial Cup.

The expected forward lines for Friday's game are:

Alex Tanguay - Vincent Lecavalier - Carter Ashton
Ryan Malone - Steven Stamkos - Martin St. Louis
Stephane Veilleux - Paul Szczechura - Richard Panik
Zenon Konopka - Ryan Craig - Blair Jones

Joining Hedman on the blueline for a second straight game are David Hale, Kurtis Foster, and Mike Lundin. Mattias Ohlund will be making his Lightning debut and Lukas Krajicek rounds out the Bolt defensive corps. Joining Tokarski in net is Lightning #1 goalie Mike Smith in his first game action since a concussion prematurely ended his 2008-09 season.
