Andreas Holmqvist was scoreless in Frolunda's 5-3 win over Brynas. Frolunda is currently 6th in the 12 team Elitserien.
This past weekend, Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster and Norfolk Admirals General Manager Claude Loiselle spent the All-Star break touring Western Canada watching potential and future Bolts.
Among the games the duo took in were the CHL Top Prospects Game and two games featuring 2007 second round pick Dana Tyrell. On Thursday night, Tyrell scored 2 goals in a 5-4 Prince George shootout loss to Lightning 2006 6th rounder Dana Crowley and Everett in front of Lightning leadership. After a game in Vancouver to see the Giants and Tri-City Americans on Friday, they saw Tyrell again, this time against Lightning 2007 4th rounder Mitch Fadden - a game that was a 9-0 blowout for Fadden and Lethbridge. Fadden had 2 assists in the game.
Feaster provided a quick review of the Lightning draftees for BoltProspects.
Johan Harju had 2 penalty minutes in Lulea's 4-3 loss to MODO. Lulea is currently 11th in the 12 team league.
Langley Chiefs 2 @ Victoria Grizzlies 0
W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
Seattle Thunderbirds 3 @ Tri-City Americans 1
G Riku Helenius, SEA: Did not play
Lethbridge Hurricanes 8 @ Kamloops Blazers 1
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 1-0-1, E, 17 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct, fighting major-game misconduct), *Second Star*
The line of Zach Boychuck, Fadden, and Colton Sceviour (Dallas 4th round 2007) combined for 7 points and 39 PIM as they all received fighting majors in a brawl that took place with just over a minute left in the one-sided game. The three took all three star awards for the game, with Boychuck being the first star for his 2+1.
Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster and Norfolk General Manager Claude Loiselle were scheduled to be in Edmonton last night for the Oil Kings-Medicine Hat Tigers game.
The Tigers won the game 7-1. Notable draft eligible players (CSS Midterm rankings)include:
Following last Wednesday night's ECHL All-Star game in Stockton, CA, the Mississippi Sea Wolves had the unenviable task of starting the second half of the season with a three-in-three on the road against the ECHL's best team - the Texas Wildcatters. And just like that, all that momentum of a 10-2 January run to the All-Star game vanishes as the Wolves go 0-3 in Beaumont. Ryan Munce gave up 10 goals in two games, bringing the young goalie back to earth after a other-worldly run in 8 games prior to the All-Star event. Brandon Elliott played this weekend for the first time since early December.
