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 November 11, 2014 is … Cedric Paquette, Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL – USA).
Don’t get in the way of Dump Truck. This applies to AHL and NHL defensemen, or anyone in Cedric Paquette’s developmental path.
The hard-nosed center with the Tampa Bay Lightning isn’t supposed to be crashing through the NHL door yet. The prospect we affectionately nicknamed “Dump Truck” (because dump trucks aren’t pretty or fast, but dump trucks are strong and do the hard work) is in just the second year of his 3-year, entry-level contract.
