Tampa prospect Adam Erne was a standout in the 5-5 tie against the Bruins' rookies Friday night.

The Lightning's second round pick in 2013 scored a goal and added two assists in the tie. Erne is certainly someone to watch, but he likely won't crack the Bolts' lineup until 2014-15 as he is ticketed to return to his junior team this season.

Adam Erne will be another Tampa Bay prospect worth watching when the Lightning play Friday against Nashville in their rookie tournament opener.

"He does have the skill to be one of your top offensive players," Bolts director of amateur scouting Al Murray said. "Adam can come in and, if things are not going well for him with the puck, he can be a presence without the puck by being physical. He's a very smart player, he can play a two-way game. He can do a lot of different things on the ice, he doesn’t have to score points to be an effective player for his team. We are anxious to see him both physically be a presence and put up some numbers." He'll probably return to his junior team for this season.
