Norfolk Gets Three

Damian Cristodero of the St. Pete Times reports Mathieu Darche and Craig MacDonald both cleared waivers today and have been assigned to Norfolk. Both should bring instant offense to a club struggling to score goals and lacking true centers. Also, Matt Smaby was assigned to the Admirals.

The Lightning is now down to just 20 players, which reportedly was their goal once everyone was healthy. Doug Janik has won the No.6 defenseman job outright.
