Looking ahead

In the USHL playoffs, the season continues
for two BU recruits, but has ended for four others.

Lincoln was eliminated in the Western
Conference final by Fargo, despite a pair of goals by 2023 recruit Doug Grimes
in the Stars’ 6-4 loss. He finished the post-season with a 3-6-9 line after
putting up 24-25-49 in 49 regular-season games.

In the Eastern Conference final,
Youngstown eliminated Chicago in four games, defeating the Steel last night,
2-1 in overtime. 2023 recruit Jack Harvey had given Chicago a 1-0 lead but the
Phantoms tied the score late in the third period and won in overtime. 2023
recruit Shane Lachance’s bullet pass to the crease set up the game-winner. 


Lachance has four points (2G,2A) in six games,
while 2024 recruit Brandon Svoboda has one goal for Youngstown.

For Chicago, Harvey had a 2-2-4 line six
playoff games. His regular-season total of 74 points (40G,34A) was fourth best
in the USHL. 2023 recruit
Macklin Celebrini played in only two playoff games
after returning from the World 18U Championships and had no points. He was the
league’s regular-season scoring champion with 86 points (46G,40A) and claimed
the USHL’s Rookie of the Year, Forward of the Year and Player of the Year awards. 


Looking back

Jack Eichel scored his fifth playoff goal
and added two assists to lead the Golden Knights past the Oilers, 5-1 in game three. Following last night's Edmonton win, the series is tied at 2-2.s a 2-1 series lead.

Jake Oettinger stopped 16 of 19 shots as
Dallas doubled up Seattle, 6-3,
to even their playoff series at two games apiece.

 Three Terriers have been named finalists for NHL post-season awards. Clayton Keller, who tied the Coyotes' record for points in a season, is a candidate for the Bill Masterton Memorial Award. Kevin Shattenkirk and Brady Tkachuk are finalists for the King Clancy Memorial Award.
