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, prospect and World Championship news:
The Coloradoan: Colorado Eagles drop affiliation with Winnipeg Jets. Probably makes sense to have your ECHL affiliate close to the AHL organization. Colorado and St. John’s aren’t exactly in the same neighborhood.
Globe and Mail: Horvat buzzer beater gives Knights OHL crown. Despite a heroic effort, including tying the game late in the 3rd period, without both Jets prospect Mark Scheifele and Anthony Camara who was suspended, the Colts came up just short. In fact they lost with 0.1 seconds remaining on the clock. The London Knights win back-to-back OHL Championships. Mark Scheifele finished the playoffs with 41 points (15 goals, 26 assists) in 21 games. Now that his Junior career is officially over, Jets fans can now speculate what next season will look like for the 2011 First Round pick.
