Erie completed the upset of top-seeded Sault Ste. Marie, winning 7-3 Saturday night to take the Wayne Gretzky Trophy. The Otters, who were led by Connor McDavid’s goal and five points, will face the winner of Oshawa and North Bay in the Finals. OHL Rookie-of-the-Year Alex DeBrincat had a hat trick for Erie in the game. Lightning prospect Anthony DeAngelo’s remarkable season and junior career came to an end. He’s signed to an NHL contract and will turn pro next season. He took a bad roughing penalty in the second period after Erie’s Nick Betz tried to complete a play after a whistle, sliding the puck at the Soo’s goalie. DeAngelo went after Betz, but couldn’t get to him in the scrum. DeAngelo circled the pile after the scrum seemed to be over and shoved another player to the ice. The commentators gushed about DeAngelo most of the game, but mentioned the fine line he rides between playing with emotion and letting his emotions get the best of him. That will likely be Rob Zettler’s challenge next season for the Syracuse Crunch.

Brandon scored eight goals for the second straight game, sending the Hitmen to the golf course by winning the series, 4-1. The Wheat Kings will play the winner of Kelowna and Portland in the WHL finals. That series is currently tied at two games apiece. This ends the season of Ben Thomas, who still has another year of juniors to play before being up for contract consideration. He didn’t put up many numbers in the postseason after a solid regular season. He was getting solid minutes for Calgary in their run to the Eastern Conference Finals.
