So, What’s Left to Watch?

April 29, 2009, by

So, with the Rangers’ season over, and the Wolfpack’s season over, what else is left to watch? Well, aside from the rest of the NHL playoffs (if you can stand Versus coverage), which is setting up to have some spectacular matchups, and some Yankee baseball, you can follow two Ranger prospects compete for the Memorial Cup (Canadian Juniors Championship).

H/T to BSBer Rick in Boston for pointing this out to us. Top prospect Evgeny Grachev is leading his Brampton Battalion with 24 points (11 goals) and a +10. Game 1 of the OHL Finals is tonight. The winner heads to the Memorial Cup. Unfortunately, top defense prospect Michael Del Zotto and his London Knights were eliminated last round in the OHL Semis.

Also, Rangers free agent overage signee Tysen Dowzak with the Kelowna Rockets will be playing in the WHL finals. Again per Rick in Boston, Dowzak’s a stay-at-home type guy, with just two points in 16 playoff games, but a nice +7.

We won’t be shutting down shop, and will be attempting to get at least a post a day in during the offseason. So keep checking back.

    Evgeny Grachev’s Battalion were shelled 10-1 by the Windsor Spitfires in Game 1 of the OHL Finals. Grachev was a -2 on the night according to the OHL’s scoresheet.

    Game 2 will be Friday. According to the Battalion’s website, Grachev started the game skating on Cody Hodgson’s line – Hodgson is one of Vancouver’s top prospects and the #10 overall selection in the 2008 draft.
