Coming off two wins this week against division-rival Owen Sound, the Storm were in prime position to leapfrog the Rangers in the Midwest Division with a win on Sunday, but it was not to be. Carolina prospect defenseman Ryan Murphy scored late in the second period to give Kitchener a 3-2 lead, which the Rangers made hold up for the duration of the game. Tanner Richard scored his seventh goal of the season on a penalty shot. He now has four goals in his last five games after starting the year with three in his first 32.

Lightning prospect Nikita Kucherov (pictured) was in the Rouyn-Noranda lineup for the first time since December 7 because of his time with Team Russia at the World Junior Championships and an injury sustained in the tournament. On Thursday, he faced fellow Lightning prospect and Team Russia teammate Artem Sergeev, who was plus-3 with an assist. Kucherov is a boost for the Huskies lineup as they move toward the playoff race.

Slater Koekkoek skated this week despite an injured shoulder, but The Windsor Star reported the Lightning flew him to Florida for the weekend to have the shoulder examined. The Lightning want to clear him to play before he returns to the ice. The Spits are 4-0-0-1 in their last five games and are four points from escaping the West Division cellar.

Prospect of the Week: January 15, 2013

After a break for the World Junior Championships, we continue our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their recent contributions on and off the ice.

The Prospect of the Week for January 15 is … Artem Sergeev, D, Val-d’Or (QMJHL – Canada)

Artem Sergeev is what we call a “bonus pick.” He went undrafted twice, but the Lightning saw enough in him last season to commit an NHL contract to him as a free agent on July 1.
