Fadden Out Indefinitely

Lightning prospect Mitch Fadden, who is currently leading the ECHL in scoring for the Florida Everblades, will be out indefinitely with a blood clot. The Everblades announcers said during last night's game that Fadden had a clot in his leg and could miss the season. The Lightning confirmed to Bolt Prospects that Fadden does indeed have a clot, and "will be out indefinitely while he is on blood thinner medication."

Fadden, a 2007 fourth round pick of the Lightning, has 15 goals and 36 assists for 51 points in just 37 games this season for Florida.

Jaroslav Janus made his return from AHL Norfolk to the Florida nets, but took the loss Wednesday, 3-1 to visiting Cincinnati. Florida outshot the Cyclones 28-27 in the game. From the boxscore, it appears the Blades only dressed 14 skaters (five defensemen). Among those missing was Alex Hutchings, who remains out with a lower body injury. Mitch Fadden extended his point streak to seven games, though he’s “just” registered a single point in his last four contests. He continues to lead the league in scoring by 11 over teammate Francis Lemieux.

Florida was down 3-0 early and never could make a comeback. Fadden hit the 50-point mark for the season with a second period assist. With the Lightning’s acquisition of Dwayne Roloson, the goaltending dominoes in the organization will send Jaroslav Janus back to Southwest Florida in the coming days. Alex Hutchings remains out with a lower body injury.
