Prospect playoff round-up: Fulcher’s Bulldogs win OHL title, defeating Sambrook’s Greyhounds 5-4

In the Ontario Hockey League championship series:

Kaden Fulcher stopped 40 of 44 shots as the Hamilton Bulldogs won 5-4 over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, capturing the J. Ross Robertson trophy as the OHL champions.

Jordan Sambrook scored a goal, finishing at -1 on 7 shots for the Sault, but his late-game marker wasn’t enough to tie the score. Ultimately, the Sault lost 4 games to 2.

[edit/update: You can read the OHL’s website’s recap and watch highlights from the game here. /end edit]

The Bulldogs will go on to play in the Memorial Cup later this month in Regina, Saskatchewan, and Fulcher has already signed a contract with the Wings; Detroit has to decide whether to sign Sambrook to a contract by June 1st, or he’ll go back in the draft.

    1. I think that Sambrook is a superb all-round defenseman, but he projects to be a 4-5-6 guy at the NHL level, and given the Wings’ logjam at defense, I would place his odds of being signed at 50-50. The Wings have a lot of forwards and a lot of defensemen who fit into the “supporting part” role, and I’m sure that Sambrook can land a job with SOMEbody’s pro team, but it may not be Detroit’s.

      1. ughhh….that would open the flood gates of, I told you sos, and complaints about how KH messed up again.
