Lightning to add another Ouellet?
According to the Halifax Daily News, the Lightning has extended a free agent tryout to Cape Breton Screaming Eagle Dean Ouellet. The 5-11, 172 pound Ouellet had 40 goals and 85 points in 70 games for Cape Breton last season as a 19 year old. He will turn 20 in early August, a month before he participates with Lightning prospects at the Traverse City, Michigan prospects tournament. Ouellet, a left winger, also had over 100 PIM last season before he scored 9 goals and 19 points in 16 playoff games.
"It's going to be a great experience," Ouellet told the newspaper. "I'm going to go there [Traverse City] and give it my best shot and see what happens."
The Bolts added former Rimouski Oceanic and Pittsburgh Penguin Michel Ouellet this week as an unrestricted free agent. They are not related.
