RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 18 GP, 8-7-15, -8, 34 PIM

After a slow start, Ashton has 12 points in his last 10 games, including goals in his last two.

Killorn's Heroics Lead Harvard to Win

On Saturday night, Lightning prospect Alex Killorn scored the game's only goal with 8.2 seconds left to lift Harvard to their first win of the year over RPI. The video of the goal has found its way to YouTube. Enjoy.

D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

Saskatoon allowed 2 third period goals, enabling Seattle to tie the game. The Thunderbirds then scored once in the shootout for the win. With his assist Tuesday, Zahn extended his point streak to a career-long 4 games. While that may be ho-hum for some, considering Zahn only had 3 points (all assists) all of last season, it’s a major achievement. His career high for points is 19, set in 2007-2008 with the Blades in 69 games. He was drafted by the Blackhawks in the fifth round after that season.

C Jimmy Mullin, USA: 3-0-3, 0 PIM

USA opened defense of their 2009 Gold medal with a convincing 6-1 win over Canada East. Lightning prospect Jimmy Mullin led the way for the Americans with a hat trick.

The Fargo Force (USHL) forward followed that up with USA’s second goal, giving the Americans a 2-1 lead in the second period. He completed the hat trick in Penticton, B.C., with the USA’s final goal mid-way through the third period. (Hockey Canada photo)

Season totals: 17 GP, 11-10-21, E, 21 PIM

A snowman in Kitchener. Panik was a team-worst minus-5. The next worst was minus-3. Possible 2011 Lightning draft target right-handed defenseman Ryan Murphy just had an assist in the game. He has 10 goals and 28 points in 16 games so far this year for the Rangers and is now playing himself into the top of the first round it seems (and too high for the Lightning?).
