Lightning Recall Goaltender Desjardins

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have recalled goaltender Cedrick Desjardins from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League today, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced.  Desjardins joins the Lightning with Norfolk on a break until December 26.

“With Norfolk having a week off we thought it was a good opportunity to have Cedrick join us for a few days to work with Frantz Jean and practice with our team,” Yzerman said. “Whether he sees any playing time will be Guy Boucher’s decision.”

 

Desjardins, 6-foot, 192 pounds, has played in 18 games with the Admirals this season, posting an 12-5-1 record with a 2.63 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage.  He is 8-1-0 in his previous nine decisions with a .909 save percentage.  Desjardins is tied for fourth in the AHL for wins.

Last season he led the AHL in goals-against average, ranked second in shutouts, fourth in wins and was tied for sixth in save percentage. His success earned him an appearance in the 2010 AHL All-Star Classic, in which he was named top goaltender during the skills competition, as well as landed him on the 2010 AHL Second All-Star Team following the season.
