Crowley Aiming to be an Admiral

As the countdown to the start of the 2007 Traverse City (TC) Prospects Tournament finally comes to an end tomorrow, the future is now for many of the prospects making up the Lightning’s 2007 TC squad.

Canadians Win Super Series/ Game Five and Six Results

It's all over but the crying...

Team Canada clinched the Super Series on Tuesday with a convincing 8-1 thumping of the Russian U20 squad. Lightning prospect Dana Tyrell was scoreless in the match.

With nothing left to play for but pride, Canada extended their series lead to 6-0 with a 4-1 win on Wednesday. Tyrell scored his first goal of the tournament in the 3rd period of the match for what became the game winning goal. TSN has an interview with Tyrell up on their website .

Canada's website has Tyrell with 1 goal and 2 penalty minutes in 6 games thus far in the tournament.

Game Seven is slated for Friday.

Prospect Page Set Up For Camp

It's been a long offseason and I've been waiting to do some cleaning on the prospects page. It's been somewhat unseemly to still have players listed with Springfield of the AHL, but without any definite placement of players in the system for '07-'08 that's how it had to be this summer. Now that we've seen the initial rosters for both Tampa and Norfolk's camps, however, we can start to put players into the appropriate teams for which they are going to camp with, which is what I did tonight. Throughout camp, as cuts are made, we'll adjust the page as appropriate to reflect the transactions.

Wolves Sign Pair

The Mississippi Sea Wolves have signed right wing Justin Cross and defenseman Pat Oliveto. Cross, 25, played 73 games for Kalamazoo of the UHL last season, scoring 26 goals and 55 points with 28 penalty minutes. The 5'10" 185 lbs forward is entering his second season of professional hockey. Oliveto, 23, received a 7 game amateur tryout last season with Reading of the ECHL where he had 1 assist and two penalty minutes.

Both players are alumni of Niagara University of the Division I CHA. Cross' best college season came in 2003-2004 as a sophomore when he scored 12 goals and 29 points in 34 games with 14 penalty minutes. Oliveto posted his best college season last year as a senior with 2 goals, 21 points, and 26 penalty minutes in 36 games.
