Departed Defensive Prospect Returns To Tampa, Will Play Net This Weekend

According to TSN’s “Ice Chips,” former Lightning prospect and defenseman Andreas Holmqvist will return to Tampa this weekend and play goalie for the Lightning in one of their two games vs. Florida. This would seem like an odd move for the Lightning since they weren't happy with Andreas' work ethic when he was in North America a few years ago - and they signed Johan Holmqvist this summer from Sweden. Andreas had two assists in 10 games with Linkopings of the SEL before making this move across the ocean. Johan seemed to struggle a little in the late pre-season, but I don't think it was harsh enough to show him up like this. Or... could it be the Canadian media made a mistake and switched the first names, assuming all Holmqvists are really the same person? Never. It should never be assumed the Canadian hockey media makes a mistake. Good luck Andreas, you'll need it.

No one laughs because your

No one laughs because your not even a Lightning fan. You don't really like them, you just know a lot about them. Your secret is out after that letter to TSN! :)
