The Tampa Bay Lightning have played nine rookies this year, which should leave very few talented prospects left in the system. Fortunately for the Bolts, that isn't the case, as they have another wave of talented players who have seen their stock rise in the last few weeks.
With the World Junior Championships completed and the Olympics coming up, Tampa Bay prospects have been at the center of the hockey world's attention for the last few weeks. With only a few weeks left until the Olympics, Lightning fans should enjoy high-quality hockey even without the NHL on the ice.
The young talent for the Bolts has catapulted them to the top of the Atlantic Division. Keep an eye on this next wave of young talent to climb the ranks to the NHL.
