Bolts Waive Lashoff and Lundin; 3 Others Clear

Numerous reports are surfacing today that the Tampa Bay Lightning have waived defensemen Matt Lashoff and Mike Lundin for purposes of reassignment to the Norfolk Admirals. These two transactions represents the final players cut from the Lightning training camp ahead of Wednesday's 23-man roster deadline. Lashoff, a former 1st round pick of the Boston Bruins, was acquired at the 2008-09 trade deadline as the centerpiece for forward Mark Recchi and his subjection to waivers is a bit of a surprise considering his perceived NHL upside.

The Lightning have also been informed that forwards Ryan Craig, Adam Hall, and Brandon Bochenski cleared waivers today and will be reassigned to the Norfolk Admirals.
