Adam Erne

Adam Erne was the selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2nd Round, 33rd Overall in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Before joining the Lightning organization, Erne played as a part of the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL.

The 18 year old left wing has incredible speed. To be honest, at 6’ and 210 pounds, he takes the puck down the ice like a speeding train.

One can only imagine that he has just as much of a propensity to skate straight through a defender as he does to skate around him.

This is just the kind of hard hitting offense that the Bolts have been missing for some time. We have a lot of skilled playmakers charging at the opponent’s net, but not so much one that is willing to barrel through a 2-on-1 to do it.

This could make for a nice change of pace on the ice for the Lightning. This could be a way for Coach Cooper to shake things up, and keep the opponent guessing.

What surprised me the most that even though Erne skates with such intensity, he also skates with a finesse that is very unlike most players of his stature.
