Of prospect-related playoff note:
In the OHL, Kaden Fulcher stopped 17 of 18 shots as his Hamilton Bulldogs won 2-1 over the Kingston Frontenacs, winning the OHL’s Eastern Conference Championship and the Bobby Orr Trophy via a 5-game series win.
The Bulldogs will await the winner of the Kitchener Rangers-Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds series, which is tied at 2 games apiece.
You can watch highlights of the Bulldogs’ win here;
Elsewhere, in the WHL, Michael Rasmussen was actually held off the scoresheet for the first time this playoff run, finishing at -1 with 1 shot in his Tri-City Americans’ 3-1 loss to Everett.
Tri-City now trails the WHL’s Western Conference Final 3 games to 1, with a possible deciding game on Saturday…
And no, it’s not probable that, should Tri-City lose on Saturday, that the Wings would have Rasmussen pack his bags for Grand Rapids in time for Monday’s Game 5, but stranger things have happened.
