Tampa Bay Lightning 3rd round pick in the 2007 draft (#77 overall) center Alex Killorn(19) signed a two-year, two-way entry level deal with the team in mid-March and at the completion of his college playing career was signed to an ato by their AHL affiliate Norfolk Admirals for the remainder of the regular season and Calder Cup Playoff run.
In 10 regular season contests he potted his first pro goal (along with one more) and added four assists showing the brass what he is capable of producing.
He was a nominee for the Hobey Baker Award, given to the top collegiate player each year.
In his short time playing pro, no goal has been more important (or better) than the 22-year old’s tally at 13:27 of the first overtime in game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals vs. Manchester Monarchs on Friday night to move the Admirals onto the next round.
He also has 5 assists to go along with that goal in only 4 games so far this postseason.
He’s making his mark early and often.
