The Halifax Mooseheads are up 2-0 in their series versus the Moncton Wildcats following a 3-2 victory in Game 2 in which 2019 NHL Draft hopeful Raphael Lavoie led the way with a pair of goals.

A two-point night by defenceman and 2018 Memorial Cup champion Noah Dobson helped pace the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies to a 3-1 win and a 2-0 series advantage over the Victoriaville Tigres.

The Edmonton Oil Kings dumped the rival Calgary Hitmen by a 3-2 score in Game 1 as left-wing Jake Neighbours tallied the game-tying goal then followed up with the overtime winner.
