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;
– Speaking of Latvia, Arturs Kulda scored the lone goal.
OHL: Game 2 in the books as London wins 4-1 over Barrie (boxscore). Jets prospect Mark Scheifele didn’t get any points in the loss and finished the game -2.
