    Day 26 – Tampa Bay Lightning

    The Tampa Bay Lightning farm team the Norfolk Admirals won the Calder cup in very convincing fashion. They won 28 straight games to end the season or 43 of its final 46 games. That included a 16 to 3 record in the playoffs. Tampa Bay has a number of solid quality players under 25 that have already made the NHL: Steve Stamkos (22), Brett Connolly (20), Dana Tyrell (23), Victor Headman (21), and Keith Aulie (23). They have a number of quality prospects, which suggests that the future looks very promising. The American Hockey League affiliate the Norfolk Admirals had a phenomenal season with many players on that team that are very close to playing in the NHL. The recent NHL entry draft also yielded great results for the Bolts as they picked up their top three prospects in the system in Slater Koekkoek, Andrei Vasilevski and unheralded winger Brian Hart, who could be the steal of the draft.

    G - Andrei Vasilevski (RUS) Ufa Tolpar

    6’3” 204 lbs, 18 years

    Vasilevski on paper looks like the prototype of the new goaltender in the NHL. He’s big, he’s skilled, he battles every moment on the ice and doesn’t give up on any shot or rebound. His athleticism is second to none, but there’s still the KHL question and a history of flaky Russian mindsets, which could hold him back. He looked unstoppable at last year’s World Junior Hockey Championships until he was pulled in Russia’s 6-5 win over Canada in the semi- final, which opened the door for question marks. Fundamentally he’s strong, but he just doesn’t look like a big game goaltender... something fellow Russian Ilya Bryzgalov can relate to.

    Potential: Starting goaltender

    Projected Upside: 30 wins (Ilya Bryzgalov)
    ETA: 2014-15

    RW - Brian Hart (USA) Exeter Academy

    6’2” 216 lbs, 18 years

    Two-sport players are always a hit or miss scenario, and Hart falls into that category since he not only could be a future NHLer, but also had a shot to play soccer in the MLS one day. Players like this often see their progress stunted a little until they finally pick a single sport and devote everything to it, and with his size, frame and heavy shot he could be good sniper at the NHL level. His skating is solid, and carries a lot of forward momentum with him when he gets going and his natural athleticism should go a long way into getting him through rough stretches. If he makes the pick to follow his hockey dreams solely, there’s no telling his potential... heck Brett Hull had a similar skill set without being as strong of a skater and he did pretty darn well for himself.

    Potential: Goal scoring forward
    Projected Upside: 65 points (Brett Hull)
    ETA: 2016-17
