BTW, Vili Sopanen had a breakout year and finished at #11 for points in the Finish Liiga. 42 points in 56 games. He's 26.

He actually had a better year in 2012 when he 21 goals but then had just 3 goals in 2013 before this year, sounds like consistency is not his forte.

Damn. Thomson coming up huge! Maybe he's got more potential than we originally gave him credit for.

I have no idea and I wouldn't even know where to look...how many years does a team hold the rights to a player they drafted?

It depends on from where they were drafted. I think that we still own Sopanen's rights.

I hope he continues to improve in Albany next season. I think this type of player is very underrated in general...A mean tough guy that can take a regular shift is extremely valuable.

Team needs a Chris Neil. Let's hope he can be that player.

Kelowna's been getting rocked by Portland. Jordan Cooke is standing on his head the last 2 games.

Edit: Kelowna loses 4-3 in OT. Series 2-1 Portland

65 shots???!!! That isn't normal.

I've seen some junior games and I know that the defensemen can't skate very well which could lead to lots of glorious chances, but DAMN.

Portland leads series 2-1

Their first line of Bjorkstrand, Petan, and Leipsic is absolutely lethal. Plus they have Pouliot and Dumba on the blue line. The fact they only scored 4 goals on 65 shots is amazing.

Was Kelowna the underdog entering this series?

Severson to AHL after his season is over? Or maybe not because they have a lot of depth on D?

Both were very good teams in the regular season, but Portland's team is just a scoring machine. Myles Bell was Kelowna's top scorer at 77 points during the season (and he's not even playing due to injury), but he'd only be Portland's 6th best scorer. Amazing fire power on that Portland squad, although Kelowna does seem to have better depth scorers Portland just has a major advantage in terms of game-breakers. Not having Bell hurts a lot for Kelowna, so it would be fair to label them the underdogs.

Oddly, they don't have much in terms of NHL drafted prospects outside of Thomson and Dylan Blujus (Tampa 2nd rounder 2012) and Nick Paul (Dallas 3rd rounder 2013). Oshawa finished ahead of North Bay and has a handful of more touted NHL prospects (Laughton, Dal Colle, Cassels, Altshuller). Impressive that North Bay was able to sweep. Guelph is up 3-1 in the other series over Erie (Connor McDavid, Andre Burakovsky).

We need to sign Nolan Zajac, Travis' youngest brother. I have a feeling he's going to be really good.
