In an article published on tampabaylightning.com, Lightning Assistant General Manager Claude Loiselle gives an in depth interview about what's on tap for the Lightning organization next season in terms of its prospects.
Key bullet point items:
- Loiselle will attempt to re-sign midseason acquisitions Paul Szczechura and Junior Lessard.
- Matt Smaby is regarded as the prospect most prepared to make the jump to the NHL next season after a strong season in the AHL.
- As reported here on Bolt Prospects, Luca Cunti will attempt to return to SCSU next season and play college hockey.
