Bolt Prospects correspondant Chad Schnarr has learned from the Lightning organization that forward prospect [url=alexander-polushin]Alexander Polushin[/url] is currently on injured reserve for his club team Khimik in the Superleague. The 2001 second round draft pick has been slow in rehabilitating from knee surgery and has yet to play a game this season. Also, the Lightning say Prince George (WHL) defenseman [url=vladimir mihalik]Vladimir Mihalik[/url] should be back in action in two weeks. He separated his shoulder against Vancouver last Friday. In other possible injury news, Marek Bartanus is not in Owen Sound's lineup tonight.

[url=kevin-beech]Kevin Beech[/url] stopped 25 of 26 shots faced to guide Sudbury to a 2-1 victory over Sault Ste. Marie. With the win, Beech's record improves to 4-5-0 with 1 shutout and his save percentage improves to .902 on the season. The 2005 6th round pick faces an uphill battle to get signed next summer with the Lightning boasting as many as five quality goaltending prospects ([url=karri-ramo]Ramo[/url], [url=riku-helenius]Helenius[/url], [url=vasily-koshechkin]Koshechkin[/url], [url=jonathan-boutin]Boutin[/url] and [url=gerald-coleman]Coleman[/url]) ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.
