Handful of Columbus Blue Jackets prospects had productive playoffs

 

While the majority of Columbus Blue Jackets prospects missed out on post-season play this season – the Springfield Falcons, where the bulk of the organization’s prospects play, missed the playoffs – there were a few that did make enormous contributions to their teams' playoff fortunes.

The only problem is that two of the player listed are no longer CBJ prospects. Corbeil isn't coming back and I'm pretty sure that Straka was let go.

Thanks for the read.

Solid read. We've been finding some nice surprises in the mid-late rounds lately, if half of these guys can translate their games to the pro ranks, we're going to be in good shape.

Finally!

Michael Chaput led the Shawinigan Cataractes to the Memorial Cup and was rewarded with an NHL contract, while goaltender Mathieu Corbeil of the Saint John Sea Dogs went unsigned.
Did anyone else look at that particular part of the photo caption and think "well, of course, we're not going to sign a loser here"?
