The Lightning's top prospects competed in the first day of the annual 3-on-3 tournament at the Ice Sports Forum. The 28 development camp players got divided into six teams for the 3-on-3 competition, with Team Lecavalier and Team St. Louis leading the way with eight points each. Team Richards went undefeated, posting a trio of wins in three games.

Christopher Paquette, Mikhail Sergachev and Libor Hajek led the way for Team Lecavalier, combining for 17 points in four games. Sergachev, who was recently acquired by the Bolts in the Drouin trade to Montreal, scored five times on the first day of the 3-on-3 tournament. Paquette chipped in with four assists.

Anthony Cirelli, Cal Foote and Kevin Hancock round out the undefeated Team St. Louis.

The Lightning's 2015 second round pick Mitchell Stephens posted four goals and three assists in four games on the first day to lead all skaters for points. Stephens' Team Andreychuk went 1-2-1 during the first day.

Brett Howden chipped in with a goal and three assists for Team Esposito which went 2-1-0 in three games. Team Stamkos will be looking for their first win of the tournament on Saturday, after dropping all four games.
