Prospect of the Week (10.16.11)

This season Bolt Prospects introduced our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions. There are no trophies or plaques or kisses from Morganna involved, but we’re fairly certain this will be printed off and end up on a mantle somewhere. Quite simply, we wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospect’s achievement on the ice.

The AHL stole our thunder as we at Bolt Prospects were set to name him our Prospect of the Week today. Yes, we're putting ourselves in the same category as the AHL Player of the Week. It's our site.

Prospect of the Week (10.2.11)

(Week ending October 2)

This season Bolt Prospects introduced our Prospect of the Week award. The award is (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions. There are no trophies or plaques or chocolate coins involved, but we’re fairly certain this will carry heavy weight among players in the global hockey community (we were able to find a picture of him with a trophy, however. Pretend it's from us.). Quite simply, we wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospect’s achievement on the ice.

Prospect of the Week (9.25.11)

(Week ending September 25)

This season Bolt Prospects will be introducing our Prospect of the Week award. The award is (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions. There are no trophies or plaques or women jumping out of a cake involved (unfortunately), but we’re fairly certain this will carry heavy weight among players in the global hockey community and with agents negotiating contracts (were this Twitter, we’d use #sarcasm here).

Quite simply, we wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospect’s achievement on the ice.

Zador Named CHL Goaltender of the Week

The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Owen Sound Attack netminder Michael Zador is the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending April 3.

Zador was perfect between the pipes stopping all 48 shots he faced in 123 minutes of action producing a 2-0 record with a goals-against-average of 0.00 and save percentage of 1.000. He earned one individual shutout and split time with Scott Stajcer combining for a second team shutout victory.

Zador helped the Attack earn a first round playoff series win over the London Knights highlighted by a 23-save performance to backstop the club to a 1-0 shutout win in the Game six finale on Sunday where he earned second star honours. Zador made his first start of the series in Game five on Saturday and stopped all 13 shots he faced in the first 51 minutes of action before teammate Scott Stajcer finished the game with the two goalies combining for a 6-0 shutout win. Zador also made 12 saves in the final 12 minutes of a Game four loss 5-2 to the Knights on Thursday.

Zador, a 19-year-old from Toronto, ON, is playing in his third full OHL season and was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
