Riku Helenius has impressed the Lightning's goalie coach with his progress since the start of training camp, reports the Tampa Bay Times. "I like the improvement I've seen since the start of training camp. His battle level is really high right now," said coach Frantz Jean. "He came in tentative and trying to be a little bit too technical. Now, he's really battling out there and making saves that are unexpected."
