Just a friendly reminder, Friday marks the opening of the Traverse City prospect tournament. At 10:45 am tomorrow the team will hold a practice in anticipation of their 7:30 pm tilt with the New York Rangers' prospects. The Lightning's official roster for the tournament [url=http://www.tampabaylightning.com/files/traversecity.pdf]has been posted online[/url] and features highly touted Finnish goaltenders [url=karri-ramo]Karri Ramo[/url] and [url=riku-helenius]Riku Helenius[/url]. The tournament is the second step on what has become a two month long process to identify and place players in the Lightning prospect system. The tournament has added importance for tryout invitees like David Desharnais of Chicoutimi who are seeking professional contracts in the Lightning organization. Bolt Prospects will have full coverage of the tournament and reaction from the Lightning front office as it all unfolds.
