Lashoff recalled by Lightning again

The Tampa Lightning have recalled defenseman Matt Lashoff from the Norfolk Admirals.
The East Greenbush native had been called up earlier last week and played in two games, in a 2-0 Pittsburgh last Wednesday in which he totaled 15 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct only 2:22 into the contest for boarding; and skated in a 5-0 home loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday.
Lashoff, a fourth-year pro was then reassigned to Norfolk on Friday.
The 23-year-old Lashoff has appeared in 60 career NHL games between the Lightning and Boston Bruins, scoring one goal and 15 points.
A 2005 first-round draft choice (22nd overall) of the Bruins, the Lightning acquired Lashoff from Boston on March 4, 2009 with Martins Karsums in exchange for Mark Recchi and second-round draft pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Lashoff has skated in 68 games with the Admirals this season, recording eight goals and 24 points. He is second on the team among defensemen in goals, assists and points. Lashoff has skated in 234 career AHL games between Norfolk and the Providence Bruins, tallying 119 points, including 34 goals.
