Tampa Bay Lightning recalls Marc-Antoine Pouliot from AHL Norfolk

The Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday recalled Marc-Antoine Pouliot from AHL Norfolk. It's an interesting homecoming for Pouliot, who was the 22nd overall pick of the 2003 draft by the Oilers.

And while there has been no official word, it also might indicate that left wing Mattias Ritola, who was held out of Thursday's practice because of a flare-up in his Meniere's disease, is not be ready to play.

Ritola was expected to meet Friday with general manager Steve Yzerman. Ritola had said previously this week that a new double dose of medication was helping him cope with Meniere's, which causes dizziness and ringing in his right ear. But Thursday's flight from Calgary to Edmonton apparently sparked an attack.

Pouliot has eight goals, 24 points in 19 games for the Admirals and is plus-11, and leads the team in points and with 16 assists. He had one previous game with Tampa Bay in which he played 11:57 and was minus-3 in a 5-1 loss to the Penguins on Nov. 12.
