Lightning Prospect and Minor Pro Stats - January

Bolt Prospects lays out the organizational statistics for the Tampa Bay Lightning's prospects and minor pro players through January 31.

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 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.
