    Kupari had 2 assists in Karpat's 4-1 win in game 1 in Liiga, who lead the series 1-0.

    Guelph is down 2-0 after 2.

    JAD and Spokane is down 1-0 in the series, with game 2 being tonight.

    How did Kupari end up doing? How about JAD? I saw that Guelph won but did Durzi and Philips make a difference?

    Sorry, I spaced out and thought I completed this.

    Rasmus Kupari and Karpat lost in overtime in Game 7 of the Liiga finals. He had 1 goal and 4 assists in 16 playoff games.

    Spokane was eliminated in the Conference Finals, 4-1. JAD had 5 goals and 8 assists in 15 games, which was 3rd on this team.

    Guelph Storm did beat the Ottawa 67s in the OHL finals. What was remarkable is Ottawa was 12-0 going into the series, and they won the first two, making them 14-0. However, the tides turned when Ottawa's starting goaltender (Vancouver prospect Michael DiPietro) was injured in Game 2. Guelph ended up winning the next four games.

    Durzi totaled 27 points (3 G, 24 A) in 24 games, which was fourth on his team while playing on the top pairing with Edmonton prospect Dmitri Samorukov (who led all defense with 28 points in 24 games). Phillips played on the second pairing, scoring 4 points (2 G, 2 A) in 24 games, but he's been changing his game so he's more of a defensive defenseman. So, I'd say both still played big roles to their team's success.

    However, their season is actually not done.

    Every year, there is the Memorial Cup, which begins tonight. The Memorial Cup has one host team from one of the three junior leagues (this year it's Halifax). Along with the host team, the champion from the QMJHL, WHL, and OHL compete in a mini tournament to get the ultimate junior hockey trophy.

    http://chlmemorialcup.ca/

    The schedule is as follows:
    5/17: (WHL) Prince Albert Raiders vs. (Host) Halifax Mooseheads
    5/18: (QMJHL) Rouyn Noranda Huskies vs. (OHL) Guelph Storm
    5/19: (Host) Halifax Mooseheads vs. (OHL) Guelph Storm
    5/20: (QMJHL) Rouyn Noranda Huskies vs. (WHL) Prince Albert Raiders
    5/21: (OHL) Guelph Storm vs. (WHL) Prince Albert Raiders
    5/22: (Host) Halifax Mooseheads vs. (QMJHL) Rouyn Noranda Huskies
    5/23: If a tiebreaker is necessary, it will be played on this day

    Top team gets a bye to the final. Lowest team no longer competes

    5/24: Semi final between the 2nd and 3rd place team. Winner goes to the final
    5/25: Top seeded team vs. winner of the 2nd/3rd place team.

    As the Kings only have representation in Guelph, they are the easy team to root for!

    Interview with Markus Phillips prior to Game 3 in the Memorial Cup.

    What's most interesting is, while being a left handed shot, he said he actually prefers playing on the right hand side:

    If Ontario's defense looks like this next season ...

    Anderson Durzi
    Clague Phillips
    Brickley Strand
    Reddekopp


    ... watching this group grow together could make it a little easier to sit through another year of Dion in LA.

    But then, I'm a big fan of players coming up through the ranks together. My other notion, that most people will HATE, is that I wouldn't mind seeing a full year of Vilardi, Kupari, and JAD down the middle in Ontario.

    I agree with you on every point. I'd love to see them all go down there and challenge (and hopefully) to win a Calder and create a winning culture from the bottom up. Have them all gel together, win together and then rise together.

    It makes a lot of sense in terms of culture, and "team," and in building a new core that has its own identity.

    The Guelph Storm season has come to an end, thus ending it for Markus Phillips and Sean Durzi.

    Sean Durzi is currently tied with Nick Suzuki and Jakob Lauko for the Memorial Cup lead with 7 points.

    He absolutely had his pocket picked in his zone for R-N's second goal. Durzi's interesting to watch because generates scoring in both the offensive and defensive zone. Hopefully the Kings development team can help him work on his play in the defensive zone.
