The first round of the Canadian Hockey League playoffs is all wrapped up following Tuesday’s four Game 7s:
Quebec Major Junior Hockey League
The 2019 Memorial Cup presented by Kia host Halifax Mooseheads advanced to the second round thanks to a 3-1 victory over the Quebec Remparts in Game 7 in which defenceman Jocktan Chainey netted the eventual game winner early in the middle frame.
Victoriaville Tigres right-wing Olivier Mathieu played the overtime hero in Game 7 to guide his team to a 4-3 final versus the Val-d’Or Foreurs.
The underdog Moncton Wildcats upset the Baie-Comeau Drakkar to take the series in seven games as centre Mika Cyr picked up two points, including the eventual game-winning goal late in the second period.
Western Hockey League
For the first time in four years, the Calgary Hitmen are headed to the semi-final after eliminating the Lethbridge Hurricanes in seven games following a 4-2 win that saw centre Carson Focht notch both the game-opening and game-winning goals.
