New, comments

Yesterday's news about Radek Smolenak and Carter Ashton was only the first step as the Bolts whittled away their lineup during last night's scrimmage with the Norfolk Admirals.  The Bolts cut 11 players total, waiving Blair Jones and Martins Karsums in order to send them to Norfolk.

Others cut are:

Goaltenders Dustin Tokarski, Riku Helenius and Jaroslav Janus (who is unsigned); Defensemen: Vladimir Mihalik and Ty Wishart; Forwards - Juraj Simek, Paul Szczechura and Dana Tyrell.

The Bolts will make final cut downs sometime after their game in Atlanta versus the Thrashers tomorrow evening.
