Of prospect-related playoff note:
In the OHL, Kaden Fulcher stopped 24 of 29 shots as his Hamilton Bulldogs lost 5-2 to the Kingston Frontenacs.
Hamilton now leads the Eastern Conference Final 3 games to 1.
Update: The Hockey News’s Ryan Kennedy took note of Fulcher’s performance:
Kaden Fulcher, G, Hamilton Bulldogs (OHL): The Bulldogs have blown their way past Kingston in the first three games of the Eastern Conference final, with Fulcher allowing just four goals in the series so far. After getting passed over in the draft, Fulcher signed with the Detroit Red Wings and the big netminder has cut a lot of the noise out of his game, particularly in the playoffs. NHL arrival: 2021-22
