This week we continue our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their recent contributions on and off the ice.
This week’s winner is the only person to walk on this earth that can say he completed his Harvard University degree while winning a Calder Cup championship.
The Prospect of the Week for December 17 is … Alex Killorn, C/W, Syracuse (AHL – USA)
No one can claim they completed their Harvard degree while winning a Calder Cup championship except Alex Killorn.
Killorn made his AHL debut late last season for the Norfolk Admirals after finishing an outstanding collegiate career at Harvard University. He finished his last Harvard paper during Norfolk’s Calder Cup run, contributing three goals and 12 points when he wasn’t hunched over his computer.
