J.T. Brown recorded a shorthanded goal in Tuesday's preseason game.
He was gifted the marker after Dallas goalie, and former Tampa Bay teammate, Anders Lindback mishandled the puck at the blueline. "We were wondering if he and 'Lindy' had worked it out beforehand," coach Jon Cooper joked. "You could tell there was a weight lifted off his shoulders when he came back. A lot of guys were giving it to him. It's only a matter of time." Brown recorded just four goals in 63 games last season and he didn't score any after Dec. 23. Oct 2 - 12:29 PM

He does so many other good things for us and he makes other guys better. His work ethic and puck retrievals and he doesn't back down from anybody and his tenacity helps lines." Brown has four goals and 18 points in 56 games this campaign.

J.T. Brown is hoping that a good performance at Tampa Bay's rookie camp can help him earn a spot on the big team's roster.

A broken collarbone on Dec. 28 prevented him from taking part in the Lightning's training camp last year. He registered 28 points in 51 games with AHL Syracuse in 2012-13 and he added nine points in 18 playoff matches. "He just had a setback with the injury, but I feel he had a very good year," GM Steve Yzerman said. "I was very pleased with how he played in the playoffs. He didn't have spectacular numbers, but he played extremely well. He plays hard. He has good speed and skills. He generates a lot of scoring chances." Brown played five games with the Bolts in 2011-12 and he's hoping to get back to the NHL level.
