    Lightning prospect Radek Smolenak has signed a two-year deal with Czech Extraliga club HC Sparta Praha. Smolenak, a 2005 3rd round pick of the Lightning, had a disappointing 2009-2010 campaign where he scored 9 goals and 27 points in 60 games for AHL clubs Norfolk and Abbotsford. Smolenak was loaned to Abbotsford late in the season after rumored disciplinary problems and a falling out with Head Coach Jim Johnson of the Admirals. Smolenak signed a one-year deal with the Lightning in training camp after being cut at the end of the KHL preseason by Nizhnekamsk, and he also appeared in 1 game for the Chicago Blackhawks at the start of the season in a short stint in that organization after being claimed on waivers.

    The Lightning have the option of extending a qualifying offer to Smolenak in order to retain his NHL rights.

Wright finished the series with a goal, two assists, and a minus-2 rating over the six games. His junior career is now complete and the signed forward who played with Tampa Bay for the first half of the season will either begin next year with the Bolts or AHL Norfolk Admirals. His 16 playoff points in 16 games are by far a career high, topping the 10 points in 17 games he registered last year with the Giants in the postseason.

    Elsewhere in the CHL, Windsor defeated Kitchener to complete a 0-3 series comeback. Taylor Hall and the Spits will now face Alex Hutchings and Barrie for the OHL title and Memorial Cup invitation.
