[url=http://bolts.tbo.com/lightning/MGBSKIR9ZDE.html]Erik Erlendsson of the Trib is reporting LW Mitch Fritz has been recalled with a view towards the Buffalo Sabres exhibition game this weekend.[/url] Several of Buffalo's players have been attempting to brawl their way into NHL roster spots and GM Jay Feaster has concluded Fritz needs to be available if the trend continues. Erlendsson also reports the Lightning's forward prospects who remain in camp are being excluded for on ice practices, a clear indication they are unlikely to make the second cut. That leaves Timo Helbling, Doug O'Brien and Brian Eklund as the only AHL level players still practicing with the team. Defensemen Todd Rohloff and Gerard Dicaire have been skating on their own seperate from the team. According to Erlendsson, Dicaire will likely be reassigned to Springfield once he is medically cleared to play.
