Connolly moves up a line, due to Smith-Pelly injury

Well, looks like Brett "old man" Connolly's role just got a bit larger while playing for Team Canada at the 2012 World Junior Chamionship. Due to Devante Smith-Pelly suffering a broken foot during Monday's 8-1 win over Finland. Smith-Pelly being the only other NHL player, besides Connolly, playing for Canada. Unfortunately, Brett has been no stranger to his team calling upon him for a larger role, due to a teammates injury. No doubt, he'll take at as another opportunity to step up, show what he's made of and help fill that void. JM Yzerman knows how important these big scale tournaments are and how much they can help a young player like Connolly. Which played a huge part in why he was allowed, by the Lightning, to play in this tournament to begin with. Guess we as Bolt fans, should just be selfishly thankful and happy.. that it will be Brett doing the stepping up and not the "sitting down." This can only help him in his development and confidence, when it comes to important games/situations. (Wish could say same for Smith-Pelly.. it's a shame)

Pics/video from Bolts Training Camp (9/18/11) & Lightning Day in Sarasota (10/1/11)

I know it's a bit late but here are some pics & video that I took @ training camp on 9/18/11 (Sunday) in Brandon. Not the best quality, as I'm only working with a Kodak CD1013 Easy-Share digi-cam. Pictures are from drills & scrimmage. Video is mainly from the scrimmage. You will also find in one of the sub-albums, some pics/video from the "Official Lightning Day in Sarasota" Ceremony. Enjoy.

"Basically he didn’t play last year. Every day he’s showing more and more. His mind thinks really fast. Right now, I’m very happy to see a player we drafted first do that well, to improve so fast. I thought he’d have a bit of a hard time since he didn’t play much last year so that says a lot about him."

Head Coach Guy Boucher remarking on RW Brett Connolly's play during the first two days of training camp.

2010 NHL Entry Draft open thread (and live blog?)

Shut the door, there's a draft!

SB Nation 2010 NHL Mock Draft -- Tampa Bay Lightning select Vladimir Tarasenko (RW) 6th

While wings such has Brett Connolly and Nino Niederreiter have been linked to the Lightning, it's Vladimir Tarasenko that Raw Charge thinks the Bolts should select at 6th overall.

Lightning tend to skip the wing with 1st round picks

2010 represents the Tampa Bay Lightning's 19th NHL entry draft.... They have only selected a wing 4 times with their first selection... And the results ain't pretty.
