Dmitry Korobov was re-assigned to Syracuse of the AHL following Sunday's game.

The rookie defenseman recorded his first NHL point in the Lightning's 4-3 loss to the Rangers and was rewarded with a demotion. With Sami Salo and Eric Brewer recovering nicely from injuries Korobov was no longer needed in Tampa. He will likely be the first call up should the Bolts find themselves short on the blueline due to injury.

Tampa coach Jon Cooper was pleased with Korobov's effort. Korobov has some offensive potential as evidenced by his 12 points in 26 AHL games this season. That said, we don't expect much from him from a fantsasy perspective this year.
