Prospect round-up: Fulcher wins playoff start for Hamilton; Rasmussen 2G+1A for Tri-City

Of playoff, related note, in the KHL, Alexander Kadeikin didn’t play in Lokomotiv Yaroslavl’s 3-1 loss to SKA St. Peterburgh.

SKA eliminated Lokomotiv 4 games to 1, and Kadeikin probably won’t be signed by the Wings;

In the Swiss NLA, Joren van Pottelberghe served as the back-up in HC Davos’ 5-3 loss to EHC Biel-Bienne. EHC eliminated Davos 4 games to 2.

I believe that JvP has another year as Wings property, and it’s going to take another season for the Wings to decide whether to sign him as he’s just played a very limited role behind Gilles Senn in Davos;

In the OHL, Kaden Fulcher stopped 20 of 23 shots as his Hamilton Bulldogs won 6-3 over Niagara, taking a 1-0 lead in the teams’ first-round playoff series;

And in the WHL, Michael Rasmussen had an excellent playoff debut as the captain of the Tri-City Americans, scoring 2 goals in Tri-City’s 5-0 win over Kelowna.

Rasmussen had 2 goals and an assist, finishing at +1 with 5 shots and went 4-for-5 on faceoffs, and he was named the game’s 3rd star.

The WHL’s Twitter account posted Rasmussen’s goals:

    1. Don’t know why he pointed to the sky…Michael isn’t a big celebration person.

  1. Yes, that worried me a tad. I hope he uses his body more than Mantha.

    During the game vs Russia, he skated right by a couple of Russians beaking at him. I swear Ras never blinked his eyes, lol.

    Will see how he reacts to the NHL Perrys, Tkachuks, and other pests??

    At 6’6″ and some muscle added he should be fine
