In his NHL debut, Killorn picked up an assist in a 5-1 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Through four games Killorn is rated +1 and has been booked for a pair of penalties. Killorn was called up to the Lightning after getting off to a great start with the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL, where he had 16 goals and 38 points in 44 games.
