Lightning prospects to play for title

Published September 14, 2004

The Lightning is on the verge of another championship.

All right, it's not quite as big as the Stanley Cup, but the Lightning prospects have won two games and play St. Louis this afternoon for the championship of a three-team minitournament in Traverse City, Mich.

Friday, the Lightning beat the Blues 3-1 behind goals from Adam Henrich, Darren Reid and Nick Tarnasky. Andy Rogers, the Lightning's first-round pick in the 2004 draft, picked up an assist, and goalie Karri Ramo made 37 saves.

The Lightning beat the prospects of the Red Wings 5-4 on Sunday. Henrich and defenseman Andreas Holmqvist each had a goal and an assist. Goalie Gerald Coleman, a 2003 draft pick, had 29 saves.

The 1 p.m. championship game wraps up a five-day camp and tournament. Some of the prospects are supposed to report to Lightning training camp Thursday, but it's unlikely any NHL camps will open because the owners are expected to lock out the players when the collective bargaining agreement expires Wednesday.

Montreal keeps All-Star

The Canadiens re-signed Sheldon Souray to a three-year contract, they said. He had led Montreal defensemen with career highs of 15 goals and 20 assists in 63 games last season to earn his first All-Star berth. Financial terms were not disclosed.

BLUES: Defenseman Barret Jackman, the 2002-03 rookie of the year, re-signed. The first-round pick in 1999 had three goals, 16 assists, 190 penalty minutes and a plus-23 in 2002-03. But he was limited to 15 games last season because of a shoulder injury and finished with one goal, two assists and 41 penalty minutes. Financial terms were not disclosed.
