Lobb to Guelph
2001 4th round draft pick Aaron Lobb was traded
from the London Knights to the Guelph Storm.
A much needed change for the struggling prospect. Through the first ten games of the season,
Lobb posted one goal and two assists for the Knights. Since his trade, he has added two more assists in three games,
both on game winning goals.
“He needed a change,” said London General Manager Mark
Hunter of Lobb. “Sometimes a player
gets in a rut and it becomes an anchor on his back. I’ve been there myself.”
Ollie Slowly Making His Mark
Rookie Jimmie Olvestad has not scored since opening night in
Tampa Bay, but the young Swede is making his mark in other areas. He led the team in hits for most of the
season and is currently ranked second behind Pavel Kubina, with 10 hits in 8
games. While averaging 13:25 minutes a
game, Olvestad is one of only seven Lightning players ranked in the plus side
of the goal differential category.
Invitee Inked & Brother Tags Along
The Lightning have signed camp invitee Gaetan Royer and
assigned him to the Pensacola Ice Pilots of the East Coast Hockey League.
