Spokane completed the four game sweep of Lethbridge with a 4-1 win in Game 4 tonight (Wednesday) to win the 2008 WHL championship. Fadden was scoreless in all four games and finished the series with a minus-6 rating. He finishes the playoffs with 20 points in 19 games, good enough for fourth (tie) in the league.
Whatâ€™s Next for Fadden: The Lightning are starved for offensive production on the farm and Fadden is one of the first of a new wave of forward draftees expected to help in that area. Fadden and his representatives will sit down with Claude Loiselle and Jay Feaster of the Lightning over the next weeks to hash out Faddenâ€™s first professional contract. Once signed, Fadden will likely end up on Norfolk next season. Faddenâ€™s first step toward playing in the NHL â€“ after signing a contract â€“ will be to earn a spot in the Lightningâ€™s training camp.
Note: With the completion of Fadden's season, there are no Lightning prospects left playing this year.
