We continue our Bolt Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for his recent contributions on and off the ice.
The Bolt Prospect of the Week for the week ending November 10 is … Brayden Point, C, Moose Jaw Warriors, Team WHL.
I hope Brayden Point has a big trophy case, he’s probably going to need some extra room this year.
The Lightning’s 2014 third round steal currently leads the Western Hockey League in scoring with 16 goals and 39 points in 16 games. That six points ahead of his closest competitor despite playing two fewer games. This past week-plus he had 15 points in Moose Jaw games, including a hat trick/five-point night on Saturday against Prince Albert. He was originally credited with four goals that game, but the league made a late scoring change. It was his seventh career hat trick.
