Sullivan Joins Bolts, Prospects Signed

As expected, Mike Sullivan has been hired on by the Lightning to replace fired assistant Craig Ramsay. He will take over Ramsays former responsibilites as coach of the defense and penalty kill. Sullivan spent 3 seasons as head coach of the Bruins, and most recently coached the US team at last month's World Championships. He also played for Tortorella while with the Coyotes.

Prospects that signed are goaltender Riku Helenius, and center Chris Lawrence. Both signed three-tear deals. Neither is expected to play any higher up than Norfolk next season.
