Season Totals: 40 GP, 5-22-27, -9, 43 PIM

Gatineau captain Adam Janosik was a goal shy of a Gordie Howe hat trick after having an assist (shorthanded) and a fight. Janosik has elevated his game since being named captain. He dropped the gloves 23 seconds into the game to help send a message to the Armada. He certainly did as he pummeled Anderson in a clear fight win for Janosik. (see video below)

Niagara IceDogs 3 @ London Knights 2

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 46 GP, 17-38-55, +11, 38 PIM

Namestnikov set a new career high when he failed to score for the 14th straight game. London broke Niagara goalie Mark Visentin’s shutout streak at three games, but the Coyotes pick got the win against the high-powered Knights. Former Lightning draft pick Brock Beukeboom (pictured), who was traded by the Lightning at this time last year to the Blues, played his 30th game of the season on Friday for Niagara. 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. Hopefully his development is back on track after missing so much time due to injury. The Lightning took him in the third round in 2010.

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.

Windsor Spitfires 2 @ London Knights 5

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 44 GP, 17-36-53, +11, 38 PIM

London shook off a blowout loss at home to Kitchener earlier in the week by defeating Windsor handily on Friday night. Namestnikov’s goal-less streak reached 12 games. He had a 13-game goal-less drought last year, which was the longest of his short OHL career thus far. Namestnikov has 13 assists over his last 12 games, but only one in his last three contests. Lightning camper Seth Griffith scored his 35th goal of the season on Friday. His 35 goals rank second in the league behind Kings second rounder Tyler Toffoli of the Ottawa 67’s.
