Top Prospect Signing (Jun 29)

It looks like the first of the 2017 draft class has already put pen to paper, as the Tampa Bay Lightning have signed their 2nd round pick, the 48th overall selection, forward Alexander Volkov to his 3-year entry-level deal.

Well, according to the sites and publications that I frequent, Volkov is a bit of a mystery.  The NHL Central Scouting had him as the 27th ranked European player, as he split time in the system for St. Petersburg in the KHL, both the junior and minor league team.  A quick signing must mean that the Lightning have something up their sleeve here, so this kid could be one to watch at camp.
