CHL Playoff Notebook: March 24, 2019


Seven games were on the docket for Day 4 of the Canadian Hockey League playoffs, beginning with five in the OHL:

Ontario Hockey League

Arizona Coyotes prospect Nate Schnarr notched four assists in the Guelph Storm‘s 7-0 drubbing of the rival Kitchener Rangers to help his club take the first two games of the series.

London Knights captain Evan Bouchard picked up three points Sunday, bringing his playoff total to seven, as he powered his team to a 5-0 victory and 2-0 series edge over the Windsor Spitfires.

Ottawa 67’s right-wing Graeme Clarke, a 2019 NHL Draft hopeful, rightly earned first-star recognition after he collected a hat-trick en route to a 5-2 outcome against the Hamilton Bulldogs that pushed his side’s series lead to two.

Sudbury Wolves centre Quinton Byfield, a projected top pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, put on a show in Game 3 against the Mississauga Steelheads, picking up a pair of tallies in an eventual 5-3 win as his club gained the stranglehold on the series.

Five different skaters from the Oshawa Generals finished with multi-point nights in Sunday’s 8-2 smashing of the Peterborough Petes, including right-wing Tyler Tullio, whose two goals helped lift the home side to a two-win advantage.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

The Victoriaville Tigres put up a repeat performance to their series opener against the Val-d’Or Foreurs, coming away with another 4-2 victory, as Sunday saw defenseman Dominic Cormier tally two points, including the game-winning goal early into the middle frame.

Western Hockey League

The Edmonton Oil Kings evened their series with the Medicine Hat Tigers at one a piece following a 4-3 win in which right-wing Quinn Benjafield fired home the game winner with less than three minutes remaining in the third period.
