Lightning assign Erne to junior team

The Tampa Bay Lightning assigned forward Adam Erne to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Friday. The move trimmed the team’s training camp roster to 58.

Erne was picked by the Lightning in the second round (No. 33) of the 2013 NHL Draft. He scored two goals and added another in the shootout in Tampa Bay’s 4-3 defeat of the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday in his first NHL preseason game.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
