This season Bolt Prospects introduced our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions. There are no trophies or plaques, but one day this will be in a time capsule and weâ€™d pay to see the look on peoplesâ€™ faces when they dig that thing up in 50 years. We wouldnâ€™t pay a lot, though.
Quite simply, we wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospectâ€™s achievement on the ice.
This weekâ€™s BP Prospect of the Week award goes to â€¦ Riku Helenius, Goaltender, JYP (Finland).
