Boutin, Jonathan

Springfield Notes: Boutin Back, Spina Moved to Center

According to today's Springfield Republican:

Jonathan Boutin has returned from injury (which was a concussion) and the team will carry three goaltenders into the weekend: Boutin, Karri Ramo, and Gerald Coleman. The paper says that a roster move could be made on Monday. Of interest here is Tampa Bay GM Jay Feaster telling the Tampa papers today that he doesn't want to deal off a player from the NHL roster, but instead - if a deal is to be made - he would use a prospect/pick. Tampa currently has three AHL-caliber goaltenders. Hmmmm…..

Also, Falcons Coach Steve Stirling plans to permanently move David Spina to center. Stirling likes the way Spina and Kyle Wanvig work with each other and the physical presence of Brandon Elliott on that line. The Republican points out Spina assisted on all three of Wanvig’s goals against Hartford the other night.

Probable top-3 lines entering the weekend:

Eric Healey – Daniel Corso – Norm Milley
Kyle Wanvig – David Spina – Brandon Elliott
Marek Kvapil – Dan Cavanaugh – Justin Keller

Coleman recalled to Springfield; Boutin has minor injury

Johnstown, PA (February 5, 2007) – The Johnstown Chiefs on Monday announced that goaltender Gerald Coleman has been recalled to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

Bolt Prospects has learned from sources within the Lightning organization that the reason for the recall is that Jonathan Boutin is not 100% healthy and may not be able to dress for the Falcon's next game.
