Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Week: 2/26-3/4

It was a tough week for the Lightning's prospects, but one prospect did manage to put up some solid numbers.

D Vladimir Mihalik, Prince George (WHL)

Mihalik, who won Prospect of the Week honors three weeks ago, has stayed hot for Prince George helping to further solidify his position as one of the Lightning organization's top blueline prospects. The young Slovak's week began Monday (2/26) night against WHL juggernaut Everett. Mihalik posted a pair of assists and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes against the Silvertips in helping the Cougars to a 6-4 victory in the completion of delayed game from earlier in the season. Mihalik was even with 6 penalty minutes later that night in the second game of the doubleheader as Everett defeated Prince George 3-2 in a shootout. After struggling with a -3 rating Saturday (3/3) night in a 4-1 loss to Kootenay, Mihalik rebounded the following night (3/4) with a power play goal in a 7-4 win against Kelowna. In 15 less games than last season Mihalik has already doubled his statistical output of the 2005-2006 season with Red Deer. Through 47 games the blueliner has 7 goals and 25 points with a -1 rating and 80 penalty minutes.
