Tampa Bay Lightning think a lot of rookie wing Carter Ashton(18). He was chosen #29 overall in the 1st round of the 2009 draft.
He’s off to a quick start with their AHL affiliate Norfolk Admirals putting up 13 points (9 goals, 4 assists) in 10 games.
For the first month of the season he was named Reebok/AHL Rookie of the Month.
Last Friday night in Providence he didn’t fare so well in the fisticuffs with Bruins‘ Zach McKelvie. Oddly enough though he did get the Admirals‘ first goal and was picked as the game’s #1 star.
