Harri Sateri allowed 7 goals on 41 shots as the Finnish U20 WJC team started off their tournament with a 7-4 loss to Russia. Lightning prospect Riku Helenius did not play in the game.
The Mississippi Sea Wolves won the middle stanza of a three game road trip to Beaumont, but lost the Thursday and Saturday night games. The three game series was a hard fought battle for both teams with the Wildcatters owning a 1 goal differential in the three games played.
Stan Lascek assisted on Chris Cava's OT game-winner Friday night.
TheAHL.com is reporting the Lightning have returned center Blair Jones and defenseman Jay Leach to Norfolk of the AHL.
I'd love a break out of how much money Blair Jones made on a per second of ice time basis in the last week. Ditto Leach. De facto Christmas bonus.
