Jets prospect and World Championship news:
– Jacob Trouba and Team USA beat Finland 4-1 and the young prospect finished +2 with 12:33 total time on ice.
Winnipeg Free Press: Chevy’s choice – Stick with Noel or pursue Vigneault. Since AV remains with the Canucks the point is moot, for now. What do you think? Should GM Cheveldayoff given his coach a more ringing endorsement when given the opportunity? (Question 3 in his End of Season presser).
Yahoo Canada: Mark Scheifele has a massive night. The Jets prospect had back-to-back five point nights as he helped the Colts storm back from a 3-1 deficit. His four 3rd period goals helped to give Barrie a 3-1 series lead and he solidified his hold on the OHL point lead (39 points – 15 goals, 24 assists). Game 5 goes Friday, May 10th in London.
OHL Network: London at Barrie Game 4 post-game (video). Listen to coach Dale Hawerchuk and Mark Scheifele talk about the big win last night which starts at 1:10.
