Note:  Reminder that if any Stanley Cup Playoff games go to overtime, we will be having our #ICOTpool contest.  Similar to the #ICGWG contest in that you pick one player (total) from either team and @ tweet us (@illegalcurve) with your selection as well as the hashtag #ICOTpool.  Winner gets IC Gear.

Jets World Championship and prospect news:

Winnipeg Sun:  One great sports city.  I agree with Paul that Winnipeg is a fantastic city to enjoy the sports scene and there is also no doubt that the landscape looks radically different now than it did when he first began.  Even just a comparison between 2013 and 2010 is significant enough.

- Andrew Ladd scored his 1st goal in Canada’s loss to Switzerland;

- Jacob Trouba had an assist in a 5-1 USA win over Latvia;
