Who's Trending? (Part 4)

With today’s Part 4, we close the book on our late offseason Who’s Trending? series that examines rising or falling player values. As we’ve mentioned many times, the great part about hockey – and especially developmental hockey – is this is subject to change. This is The Afanasenkov Rule.

The series includes current prospects and players that started last season as prospects who remain in the Tampa Bay Lightning organization.

Florida Outworks Lightning, Wins Tournament Finale, 6-3

Lightning prospects took to the ice Tuesday for their third and final game of the Nashville prospects tournament. Unlike the first two games, which were settled in overtime, this one was done well before the end of regulation with the Florida Panthers winning, 6-3.

There’s no way around it, Florida was the better team on Tuesday, outworking, outhustling, and outmaneuvering the Baby Bolts.
