Of prospect-related playoff note:
In the WHL, on a night in which the Grand Rapids Griffins bid their playoff hopes adieu, their most plausible roster reinforcement saw his WHL playoff run come to an end.
Michael Rasmussen scored a goal and registered an assist, finishing even on 4 shots as his Tri-City Americans lost 6-5 in overtime to the Everett Silvertips.

Everett won the WHL’s Western Conference Final 4 games to 2, and they’ll advance to play the Swift Current Broncos for the WHL title.
Rasmussen’s playoff run ends with 16 goals and 17 assists for 33 points registered over the course of 14 games played.
He’ll earn a good chance to make the Red Wings’ roster out of training camp, and if he doesn’t make the big club, he’ll be a big part of the Grand Rapids Griffins team.
