Award

Event tag that describes a prospect receiving some kind of award

Prospect of the Week: 11-5-14

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 5, 2014 is … Joel Vermin, Syracuse Crunch (AHL – USA).

The Syracuse Crunch needed a flood of goals in a big way on Saturday night, and Joel Vermin was happy to help open the gates.

Prospect of the Week: 10-28-14

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 October 28, 2014 is … Adam Erne, Quebec Remparts (QMJHL – Canada).

Adam Erne is turning the QMJHL into his personal playground, and littering that playground are hats. Lots and lots of hats.

Prospect of the Week: 10-21-14

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 October 21, 2014 is … Jonathan Drouin, Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL – USA).

#Soon became #Now this week when the long-awaited arrival of Jonathan Drouin finally happened. The Lightning’s top-rated prospect made his NHL debut on Monday night in Edmonton, creating several scoring chances in what was an overall sloppy team loss for the Bolts.

Prospect of the Week: 10-15-14

We begin another season of 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 October 15, 2014 is … Vladislav Namestnikov, Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL – USA).

When Vladdy Namestnikov was drafted in the first round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, he was a pencil-thin kamikaze forward with the London Knights with a sweet set of hands. It’s said every draft, and every draft it’s ignored – teams don’t draft for now, they draft for five years from now.

Bolt Prospect of the Week: April 23, 2014

With the end of the Lightning and Crunch seasons, we conclude our Bolt Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their recent contributions on and off the ice.

The Bolt Prospect of the Week for April 23, 2014 is … Luke Witkowski, D, Syracuse Crunch (AHL – USA).

Twenty-eight Bolt Prospect of the Week awards have been handed out this season, usually for offensive production or goaltending mastery. Not this week.

This week’s award goes to a rarely appreciated player type, a stay-at-home defenseman.

Luke Witkowski finished his rookie pro season last week, taking another step toward his dream of playing in the NHL. Not every prospect can step right into the NHL. Most have to be grown, groomed, and guided along the developmental path to the big show. Witkowski, who is now six seasons removed from his draft year, was named the Syracuse Crunch’s Most Improved Player for the year last week. To celebrate, he scored his second goal of the season on Sunday, though it didn’t make any highlight reels.
