    Walker was held pointless in Tuesday night’s road game in Waterloo, as the Black Hawks rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the last half of the match with three unanswered goals. Micah Miller, future teammate of Nick Perbix at St. Cloud State, scored twice for the Musketeers to help build that 3-1 lead, but Czech 17 year old Matej Blumel (Connecticut commit) paced Waterloo with a goal and two assists, including the primary on Waterloo local boy Hunter Lellig’s (uncommitted) game-winner midway through the 3rd period.

    Game 7 of this tightly fought series lived up to all expectations as both clubs held leads and both clubs rallied in this see-saw affair. The Raiders jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, scoring twice in the first six minutes of the contest before Shark’s free agent signee Jayden Halbgewachs and Ryan Peckford (2018 draft eligible) scored within a span of 25 seconds to knot the score at 2-2. Senators free agent signee Parker Kelly responded with his second goal of the period to restore Prince Albert’s lead before the teams broke for the first intermission. Coyote’s free agent signee Brayden Burke and Kale Clague (LAK, 2016 2nd round pick) set up Justin Almeida (2018 draft eligible) for a pair of power play goals in the 2nd and 3rd periods to give Moose Jaw its first lead at 4-3. The Raiders received some heroics from tough guy blueliner Brayden Pachal (undrafted), who scored short-handed to knot the score at 4-4, but those heroics were short-lived as Clague and former Lightning prospect Brett Howden setup Burke for the game-winning power play marker just 30 seconds after Pachal’s shortie. Clague paced Moose Jaw with four assists, Burke tallied three points, and Almeida scored twice as the Warriors’ best players showed up to help clinch the series win.

    Moose Jaw advances to Round 2, the WHL’s Eastern Conference semifinals, against a very tough Swift Current Broncos team that features former Blues prospect and now Flames free agent signee Glenn Gawdin, Aleksi Heponiemi (FLA, 2017 2nd round pick), and Tyler Steenbergen (ARI, 2017 5th round pick). Along with Moose Jaw’s Halbgewachs, Burke, and Almeida, these are six of the WHL’s Top 10 regular season point leaders. Game 1 starts Friday night at Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw.

    Elsewhere in the CHL, the 2nd round brackets for all leagues are finally set. The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada and the hopeful return to the lineup of Alex Barré-Boulet takes on the Moncton Wildcats in Game 1 on Friday. Likewise, the hopeful return of Otto Somppi to the Halifax lineup as the Mooseheads begin their series with the Charlottetown Islanders also on Friday night as the QMJHL quarterfinals get underway. In the OHL, the Western Conference semifinals get underway Thursday night with Lightning prospects Boris Katchouk and Taylor Raddysh and Flyer 2017 1st rounder Morgan Frost lead the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in Game 1 against the Owen Sound Attack that features Vegas 2017 #13 overall pick Nick Suzuki.

    The series returned to the Art Hauser Centre and Prince Albert rallied and forced a game seven behind a pair of goals from Cole Fonstad (2018 draft eligible) and four-points from the captain Curtis Miske (undrafted). Brayden Burke and Jayden Halbgewachs led the Warriors to a 3-2 lead but Sean Montgomery (undrafted) scored just before the end of the 2nd to knot the score. After the Raiders scored a power play goal early in the 3rd, Brett Howden knotted the game with a power play goal of his own before Fonstad scored his second of the game, the game-winner and forces game seven Tuesday night back in Moose jaw.

    Back at the Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw for Game 5, and the Warriors poised to clinch on home ice. But the Raiders didn’t get the memo, as Prince Albert jumped out to a 3-0 lead and didn’t look back. Sean Montgomery (undrafted) scored twice to pace the Raiders. There is a quick turnaround for Game 6 back in Prince Albert on Easter Sunday evening.

    Cole Gallant (Western Michigan commit) scored twice for the Lancers, first the equalizer and then the game-winner as Omaha doubled up the Lumberjacks. Zach Driscoll (Bemidji State commit) was inserted into the crease at the 2:34 mark of the 2nd period after Muskegon scored the 2-1 go-ahead goal on 16 year-old starter Christian Sbaraglia (Penn State commit).

    The Walker-Koepke-Mills line continues to produce for the Musketeers with Walker and Dylan Mills (Niagara commit) setting up Cole Koepke (Minnesota-Duluth commit) for his first goal of the game as part of a Sioux City three-goal 1st period.

Koepke would seal the game with an empty netter shortie with 73 seconds remaining. Walker is a point-per-game player in the six games since rejoining Sioux City, but still looking for his first goal.

Arnaud Durandeau (NYI, 2017 6th round pick) notched a pair of goals and Benoit Olivier-Groulx tallied three assists to pace Halifax. Somppi remains sidelined with that upper body injury he sustained midway through Game #1.

    Morgan Geekie (CAR, 2017 3rd round pick) notched his second hat trick of the series, leading the Americans in a shocking sweep of Kelowna and advancing to the WHL Western Conference semifinals. Dillon Dube (CGY, 2016 2nd round pick) scored twice for the Rockets, once on the power play in which Foote tallied his fourth assist of the series and his fifth point. Kelowna fought hard to keep the series alive, knotting the game three times at 1-1, 2-2, and 3-3, before Geekie scored two of this three goals in the last minute of the game to give Tri-City the dramatic series sweep in front of 3,000+ fans at the Toyota Center.

    The loss all but draws a close to the junior career of the WHL Western Conference Defenseman of the Year and Bolt prospect Cal Foote. He will surely join the Lightning’s AHL affiliate in Syracuse as that team finishes up their regular season and prepares for what would hope to be a deep Calder Cup playoff run. Foote brings the potential of a big minute eater for that team's Top 4 and player that can be the motor to an offense in transition. And with Foote turning 20 on December 13, 2018, he will be eligible to begin AHL play for the 2018-19 season out of camp this fall, so there is really no reason for Foote to return to juniors for an overage season after racking up 70 points and goal shy of 20.

    In addition to an ATO contract with Syracuse for the remainder of this season, I’m sure a three-year entry level contract will happen rather quickly now that Foote and the Rockets have been eliminated from Memorial Cup contention. And with the organization lean on right-handed defensemen, Andrej Sustr as a pending UFA at season’s end, and Jake Dotchin perhaps hitting a ceiling in his own development, a spectacular NHL camp this fall could even see Foote make the Lightning squad, especially if Braydon Coburn is dealt at the NHL draft in June. But surely by 2019, with the contracts of Coburn, Girardi, Stralman, and McDonagh expiring, Foote’s time in Syracuse will likely be a short one.

    Walker’s four-game point streak came to an end last Sunday as Fargo put the clamp down on the Musketeers with US World Junior A Challenge goalie Ryan Bischel (Clarkson commit) making 29 saves for the Force.

    On Saturday, Walker extended his point streak to four games, assisting on two of Sioux City’s three goals. Waterloo jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the 1st period, but the Musketeers came back, scoring three straight to draw within one before the Black Hawks shut the door in the 3rd.

    Barre-Boulet missed his second straight game, but the Armada didn’t miss a beat behind a goal and three points from Alexander Katerinakis (2018 draft eligible). After a scoreless 1st period, the two teams traded 2nd period goals before Drake Batherson (OTT, 2017 4th round pick) scored just past the midpoint of the 3rd for what would be the game and series winner. Katerinakis scored and assisted on two empty netters late in the game as Val-d’Or threw everything at the Armada to keep the series alive. The Armada are the first to punch their ticket to the quarterfinals. The QMJHL playoff bracket is re-seeded after the first round, so it may be later in the weekend before Blainville-Boisbraind’s next opponent is named.

    #1 Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 4 @ #16 Val-d’Or Foreurs 2 (Game 3)

    On Tuesday night, the series shifted to Val-d’Or for Game 3, giving a spark to the Foreurs who twice led 1-0 and 2-1 in the 2nd period after a scoreless 1st period.

    A night after losing Game 3 in Baie-Comeau, the Mooseheads came out firing on all cylinders, running up a snowman on the scoreboard and splitting the games on Drakkar home ice. Blue Jackets free agent signee Maxime Fortier scored twice and Xavier Parent (2019 draft eligible) notched three assists to pace Halifax to the win. Somppi missed this third straight game. Both teams take a night off before coming back in Baie-Comeau for Game 5 on Friday night.

    After getting injured in Game 1, Somppi was an injury scratch for Game 2 on Saturday night, but the Mooseheads powered through without Otto to take a 2-0 series lead. Halifax got goals from five players and Joel Bishop (undrafted) led the way with a goal and three points. The Drakkar twice tied the game, before Benoit Olivier-Groulx (2018 draft eligible) and Xavier Parent (2019 draft eligible) scored goals in the 3rd period to deliver a Halifax win.

    On Tuesday night, the series shifted to Baie-Comeau and the Drakkar did not disappoint the 1800+ fans at the Centre Henry-Leonard, delivering a 4-2 win behind two goals from Gabriel Fortier (2018 draft eligible). The Mooseheads got off to a 1st period 2-0 lead, but the Drakkar scored four unanswered. Somppi was an injury scratch for the second straight playoff game.

    On Monday night, the series shifted to Saginaw for Game 3 and the Soo continuing to light the lamp, scoring seven goals to take a 3-0 stranglehold on the series. The Wonder Twins, Bolt prospects Taylor Raddysh and Boris Katchouk, earned First and Second Stars respectively, with both players notching a pair of goals and Raddysh three points on the night. With the scored tied 2-2 after two periods, Katchouk and Hayden Verbeek scored 13 seconds apart to break open the game, with the Soo going on to scored three more times in the 3rd. Verbeek, nephew of Lightning AGM, and Director of Player Personnel Pat Verbeek, signed a free agent three-year entry level contract late last week with the Montreal Canadiens.
