According to TSNâ€™s â€œIce Chips,â€ former Lightning prospect and defenseman Andreas Holmqvist will return to Tampa this weekend and play goalie for the Lightning in one of their two games vs. Florida.
This would seem like an odd move for the Lightning since they weren't happy with Andreas' work ethic when he was in North America a few years ago - and they signed Johan Holmqvist this summer from Sweden. Andreas had two assists in 10 games with Linkopings of the SEL before making this move across the ocean. Johan seemed to struggle a little in the late pre-season, but I don't think it was harsh enough to show him up like this.
The Moose Jaw Warriors released their third jersey logo this week. You have to wonder if former Warrior and Lightning prospect Blair Jones is regretting signing that professional contract since it means he can't don this jersey and go to battle.
