Namestnikov, selected with the 27th overall pick in this past summer’s draft, heads back to his junior club with whom he recorded 69 points last season while ranking second on the team in scoring. Namestnikov appeared in his first NHL preseason game last night as the Bolts fell to the St. Louis Blues, 4-3, at the Amway Center in Orlando.
Tampa Bay now has 53 players remaining in camp as it prepares to take on the in-state rival Florida Panthers in a back-to-back home and home series which begins tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. at the newly-renovated St. Pete Times Forum.
