Albert Vishnyakov did not play in Spartak's 2-1 overtime loss to Khimik.
The Lightning has confirmed Stanislav Lascek did indeed suffer an injury during Norfolk's training camp. Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster said the injury was not sustained on the ice and no specifics were offered on the injury's whereabouts or cause.
Lascek struggled in Traverse City in early September and also failed to make a strong impression in his brief time in Norfolk camp before this latest injury. As a result, Feaster stated Lascek will be assigned to ECHL Mississippi when he is cleared to play.
A former QMJHL scoring star, Lascek split his rookie pro season last year between ECHL Johnstown (25 GP, 12-15-27) and AHL Springfield (29 GP, 2-2-4). He had 135 points in 64 games for Chicoutimi in his final year of junior.
Lascek has two years remaining on his entry level contract, including this season.
The October 6th Elitserien game in which Johan Harju scored a pair of goals was incorrectly reported as being a 6-4 Lulea loss. In actuality, Lulea won the match 6-4 over Farjestads. We regret the error.
