According to Erik Erlendsson's blog, the Norfolk Admirals have added centers Justin Taylor and Shawn Collymore to their camp roster. Not much to see there. Erlendsson also writes that speculation that Riku Helenius is a shoo in to appear in Lightning camp are false and that he is slated to return to Seattle of the WHL immediately after the Traverse City tournament.
Just a little taste of Swedish preseason action:
Lightning prospect Johan Harju had a pair of goals today in Lulea's 3-2 victory over Skelleftea. Former Lightning captain Mikael Renberg had a goal in the match for SAIK.
Until the Superleague's statistics website gets fixed, these unofficial results from Dynamo's website will have to do:
Anton But had 2 penalty minutes for St. Petersburg in their 4-3 win over Magnitogorsk.
Alexei Glukhov was scoreless in Cherepovets' 3-2 win over Novosibirsk.
Evgeny Artyukhin had 2 penalty minutes in Omsk's 4-3 overtime win against Tver.
Despite a goal and 2 penalty minutes from Albert Vishnyakov, Spartak fell to Dynamo 2-1 in a shootout.
Vasily Koshechkin got his first win of the season to even his record at 1-1-0 as Kazan handled Chekhov 3-1. Dimitri Kazionov was scoreless in the match for Ak Bars.
As the countdown to the start of the 2007 Traverse City (TC) Prospects Tournament finally comes to an end tomorrow, the future is now for many of the prospects making up the Lightningâ€™s 2007 TC squad.
It's all over but the crying...
With nothing left to play for but pride, Canada extended their series lead to 6-0 with a 4-1 win on Wednesday. Tyrell scored his first goal of the tournament in the 3rd period of the match for what became the game winning goal. TSN has an interview with Tyrell up on their website .
Canada's website has Tyrell with 1 goal and 2 penalty minutes in 6 games thus far in the tournament.
Game Seven is slated for Friday.
