He missed most of last year and this year with a concussion. He had an assist Friday to give him 11 points (2 goals) on the year for Niagara.

Prospect of the Week (1.30.12)

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. There are no trophies or plaques, but we are considering paying for a Super Bowl commercial to highlight the winner(s). It’s how much? Never mind. Just assume that when Danica and the GoDaddy.com commercials tell you to go to the Web to “see more” that you’re going to a highlight package of our Prospect of the Week.

We just 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 … Adam Wilcox (Tri-City, USHL) and Alex Killorn (Harvard, NCAA).

Our first co-winners.

Namestnikov had an assist on Tommy Hughes’ first OHL goal, but London was shocked at home 4-1 to Kingston.
