Lightning recall Connolly from Syracuse

The Tampa Bay Lightning recalled forward Brett Connolly from the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League, the team announced Wednesday.

Connolly, 21, had one assist in three games with the Crunch and in the preseason was tied for the team lead with four goals in five games.

Tampa Bay’s first-round pick (No. 6) at the 2010 NHL Draft, Connolly has five goals, 16 points and 30 penalty minutes in 73 NHL games. The 6-foot-2, 193-pound wing had one goal in five games with the Lightning last season.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
