Update: Labrie and Mikkelson back from Syracuse (conditioning assignement)
The Tampa Bay Lightning have assigned forward Pierre-Cedric Labrie and defenseman Brendan Mikkelson to the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League for a conditioning assignment, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced today.
Whose spot on the Crunch are they taking? Rather see a Gauthier get games than Labrie.
Nightingale and Jacques have been scratched every game since Nacho and Mikkelson have been down. I'm not sure if it's 6 or 8 but you can only dress a certain amount of veteran players. I'm not sure of the number of games you have played to be considered a vet.
Thursday marked the conclusion of the two-week conditioning stint for defenseman Brendan Mikkelson and forward Pierre-Cedric Labrie, both of whom are expected to join the team in New York for the upcoming trip.
