One of our sharp-eyed readers spotted a
familiar name on host Finland’s roster, Ahti Oksanen,
who was a key cog in the offense for BU’s 2015 national finalist squad. His 25
goals that season were exceeded only by Jack Eichel’s 26. After a season in the
North American minor leagues, Oksanen, who began his Terrier career on defense
before moving to forward, returned home to play with SaiPa in the Lilga. He
currently skates for IK Oskarshamn in the Swedish Pro Leagues (SHL). In this
video from the 2015-16 season, he scores twice, including the overtime
game-winner against Denver on Halloween.


Looking ahead

Youngstown has won the first two games of
the best-of-five Clark Cup finals. In Friday’s 4-1 win against Fargo, 2023
recruit Shane Lachance scored his third playoff goal and then assisted on a
power play tally. The Edmonton draft pick (6th round, 2022) had 33
regular season goals, tripling his previous season’s total.


Looking back

Eichel is the top playoff scorer (6-8-14)
for the Vegas Golden Knights who advanced to the Western Conference final,
eliminating Edmonton, 4-2. Eichel had a goal and two assists in Vegas’ game five
win and an assist in game six.

 Vegas will face Dallas in the conference final after the Stars edged Seattle, 2-1, in game seven of their series. Jake Oettinger stopped 22 of 23 shots, keeping the Kraken off the scoreboard until they scored an extra-attacker goal with 19 seconds remaining. It was Oettinger's first game seven win.
