Luke Witkowski isn't sitting idly by waiting for the phone to ring.
The Syracuse defenseman, one of the last players cut from Tampa Bay Lightning training camp who earned a short call-up in October but didn't play, isn't worried about when he will have the opportunity to make his NHL debut. Even with the Lightning's blueline being banged up, Witkowski is focused on his game and doing what he can to help the Crunch.
"I'm not really worried about that right now," Witkowski said of the possibility of a promotion.
Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler has seen progress in Witkowski's second professional season.
