    Sharks free agent signee Jayden Halbgewachs scored a triple-overtime power play goal at the 101:14 mark to stave off a Warriors elimination and force a Game 7 Monday night back at the Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw. It was an epic goaltenders dual as Moose Jaw netminder Brody Willms (undrafted) turned aside 58 shots and Swift Current goalie Stuart Skinner (EDM, 2017 3rd round pick) turned away 35.

    After a scoreless first period, Former Jets prospect Matteo Gennaro scored a power play goal in the 2nd period, followed by a goal from Tyler Steenbergen (ARI, 2017 5th round pick) early in the 3rd to give Swift Current a 2-0 edge. But then former Lightning and now Rangers prospect Brett Howden put the team on his back, first setting up top prospect Jett Woo (2018 draft eligible) for his 2nd goal of the playoffs, and then scoring the equalizer himself to force the extra sessions.

    The winner of Monday night’s Game 7 will draw the Lethbridge Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Finals, who eliminated the Brandon Wheat Kings four games to one.

    With playoff berths and #1 seeds on the line, Sioux City and Omaha closed out their 2017-18 USHL regular season campaign Saturday night. The Musketeers needed two points and a couple other teams to lose in order to sneak into the playoffs, and Lancers were in a battle with Waterloo for the #1 seed in the Western Conference.

    The Lancers lit the lamp first, just 1:49 into the game, in front of 3700+ home fans at the Ralston Arena. But Luke Johnson (Providence commit) would set up a pair of Sioux City goals later in the 1st period, including a power play goal with one second left in the first, giving the Musketeers a 2-1 lead at the end of the first frame. Johnson was a former captain of Edina high school and teammate of Sammy Walker. Omaha would bury a power play marker of their own in the 2nd period to knot the score, and after a scoreless 3rd period and overtime session, the post season hopes of both teams would be decided by a skills competition. Both goalies turned aside the first 5 rounds of shooters before a pair of Miami (Ohio) commits squared off, with Ryan Savage (2018 draft eligible) finally solving Musketeer goalie Ben Kraws (2018 draft eligible) for the Lancer win.

    One point for the shootout loss was not enough for Sioux City to clinch a playoff berth no matter the outcome of the other teams, and that mean that the 2017-18 hockey campaign for Bolt prospect Sammy Walker is for all intents an purposes over. It was a great season for Walker, the recipient of the prestigious Minnesota Mr. Hockey Award as the best high senior hockey player in the state. His helped lead his Edina, MN high school team to a 3rd place finish in the MN Class AA State championships, and his two goals and nine points for the Musketeers in 13 games after his high school season ended was a preview of what might be in store when he dons the Maroon and Gold for the Minnesota Golden Gophers this Fall.

    For Omaha, the shootout win was not enough to clinch the top spot in the Western Conference, with Waterloo also winning their game Saturday night. Bolt prospect Nick Perbix and the Lancers will enter the Clark Cup playoffs as the #2 seed in the West.

    The Armada punched their ticket to the QMJHL semifinals, putting up snowman on the Wildcats scoreboard en route to closing out the series on the road. Recently minted Bolt prospect Alex Barré-Boulet sat out the game after leaving Game 4 early with an injury. The Armada was paced by two goals each from Alexander Katerinakis (2018 draft eligible) and Drake Batherson (OTT, 2017 4th round pick), with Katerinakis also serving up a 4-point night. James Phelan (undrafted), by far and away Moncton’s best player in the series, scored and added an assist for the outmatched Wildcats along with Alexander Khovanov (2018 draft eligible). Former Lightning camper Mark Grametbauer (undrafted) was pulled at the 11:22 mark of the 2nd period after allowing Armada’s 5th goal on 18 shots. Matthew Waite (undrafted) would allow just 1 goal on 16 shots for the balance of the game.

    Barré-Boulet has time to heal up as Game 1 of the Armada’s semi-finals series against the upstart #9 seed Charlottetown Islanders doesn’t start until Friday, April 20th. The lslanders defeated the #8 seed Quebec Remparts in a Game 7 in Round 1 and then swept #4 seed Halifax Moosehead in Round 2.

    Katchouk and Raddysh starred for the Soo in Game 5, helping the Greyhounds take their first lead in the series against the Attack. Katchouk earned Second Star honors, assisting on three of the Soo’s four goals, and Raddysh earned Third Star honors for his goal and assist. Top prospect Barrett Hayton (2018 draft eligible) scored twice for Sault Ste. Marie, in what might be the Soo’s best game of the OHL playoffs thus far. Raddysh scored 58 seconds after Owen Sound’s game-opening goal in the 1st period, and then Hayton gave the Soo a 2-1 lead later in the period with a power play goal. Hayton scored his second in 2nd period to give the Greyhounds some breath room before Raddysh and Katchouk set up Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick) for the empty netter with less than a minute remaining to seal the victory. Despite not scoring a goal in this contest, Katchouk remains tied for 3rd in OHL playoff goals scored. The series shifts back to Owen Sound for Game 6 on Sunday, with the Soo having a chance to a clinch a spot in the Western Conference finals against either the Kitchener Rangers or the Sarnia Sting. Kitchener leads that series 3-2 win Game 6 also scheduled for Sunday.

    The Lancers got goals from four skaters and goalie Zach Driscoll (Bemidji State commit) stopped 35 of 36 Lincoln shots to lead the Lancers to the win. Omaha closes out their USHL regular season Saturday against Sammy Walker and the Sioux City Musketeers at Ralston Arena in Omaha. Perbix is one-point shy of a 30-point season going into the Lancers’ final game. Omaha sits one point behind the Waterloo Black Hawks for the best record in the Western Conference.

    The Storm scored a couple of late 3rd period goals to attempt a 3-0 deficit rally to the Musketeers, but Sioux City goalie and Miami (Ohio) commit Ben Kraws (2018 draft eligible) didn’t surrender the third. The Musketeers close out their USHL regular season Saturday against Nick Perbix and the Omaha Lancers at Ralston Arena in Omaha. Sioux City is in a three-way battle with the Chicago Steel and the Cedar Rapid Roughriders for that final 12th slot in the USHL playoffs, although it will a longshot for Musketeers with 59 points to leap frog Chicago with 61 and Cedar Rapids with 60. Chicago is playing Central Illinois, by far the worst team in the league, and Cedar Rapids is playing Madison, the 3rd worst team in the league. With Walker’s NCAA eligibility to play for the Minnesota Gophers next season, there’s no chance he would join the Crunch in the event of Sioux City not making the playoffs.

    The Wildcats staved off elimination in a stirring twice-rally Game 4 win by virtue of a 4-point night of heroics from James Phelan (undrafted). Moncton jumped out to a 2-0 lead early in the 1st when Phelan assisted on both a short-handed and a power play goal. But the Armada rallied with three straight to close out the 1st with a 3-2 lead, behind a pair of goals from Luke Henman (2018 draft eligible). The two teams swapped 2nd period goals before Phelan scored twice late in the 2nd period to put the Wildcats up 5-4 and former Lightning camper Mark Grametbauer (undrafted) closed the door on 14 3rd period Armada shots for the win. The teams get a night off before the series resumes Friday for Game 5 at the Moncton Coliseum.

    #4 Halifax Mooseheads 2 @ #9 Charlottetown Islanders 4 (Game 4)
    Quarterfinals
    Islanders win series 4-0

    C/W Otto Somppi, HAL: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 6/14 FO
    Playoff Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    The Islanders got goals from four different players en route to a Game 4 win in front of 3600+ fans to give them a shocking four-game sweep of the Halifax Mooseheads. Lightning prospect Otto Somppi returned to the Halifax lineup for the first time since Game 1 of Round 1 in a do-or-die situation for the Mooseheads. After a scoreless 1st period, Somppi assisted on the game-opening marker by Filip Zadina (2018 draft eligible), following by another Halifax goal less than three minutes later to give the Mooseheads a 2-0 lead. But Charlottetown would score four unanswered in the 2nd and 3rd periods to take the game and the series, and advanced the QMJHL semifinals.

    There’s a minor watch on for Somppi to join the Syracuse Crunch now that Halifax’s CHL playoff run ended prematurely, but it would seem that Somppi is likely still injured and only played Game 4 because the Mooseheads were facing elimination, and as such perhaps the Lightning may choose to shut him down for the season and let him heal. However, the more likely thing to watch for is the signing of Somppi’s entry-level contract, which surely is coming given his breakout year of 55 assists and 83 points, and that the Lightning must sign him or let him return to the draft.

Katchouk fired a game-high nine shots and opened the scoring in the 1st with an assist from Raddysh, who then scored his own goal early in the 2nd. Righty blueliner Mac Hollowell (2018 draft eligible), Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick) and Tim Gettinger (NYR, 2016 5th round pick) all notched two assists to help pace the Greyhounds to victory.

Gennaro scored a pair of power play markers in the 1st and 3rd periods, respectively, for Swift Current, sandwiched around a pair of 2nd period Moose Jaw goals and forcing overtime for Game 4. Broncos netminder Stuart Skinner (EDM, 2017 3rd round pick) made 51 saves, allowing just those two 2nd period Warriors goals. The win knots the series at two games apiece with the series returning to Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw on Friday for Game 5.

The teams traded 1st period power play goals, with Kevin Hancock (2018 draft eligible) tallying for Owen Sound and Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick) for the Soo. The teams then traded goals 14 seconds apart in the first minute of the 2nd period. But after that it was all Attack. Hancock paced Owen Sound with a pair of goals and Maksim Sushko (PHI, 2017 4th round pick) racked up three assists. The teams take a night off and then resume the series with Game 4 on Wednesday night at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound.

    A night after taking Game 1 off the hometown Mooseheads in overtime, the Islanders crushed Halifax with a seven-goal outburst to take both road games and go up 2-0 in the series. It’s beginning to look like the Mooseheads are missing their top line center Otto Somppi, who hasn’t played since the first game of the first round of the playoffs. After getting behind 6-1, Halifax reeled off three straight in the 3rd to close the deficit to 6-4, but the rally was too little too late. Charlottetown was paced with two goals each from Nikita Alexandrov (2019 draft eligible) and right-handed blueliner Hunter Drew (2018 draft eligible), with Alexandrov also adding two assists as well. The series shifts to Charlottetown home ice with the Islanders poised to take a stranglehold on the series when these two teams clash for Game 3 on Tuesday night.
