Road to Memorial Cup daily: Petes and Remparts secure Memorial Cup berths

CHL Three Stars

Kassim Gaudet came up big when it mattered most Sunday for Quebec as he had a goal and an assist in the final 2:08 of regulation to collect the first star. Gaudet scored the game-tying goal before he set up the game-winner 69 seconds later as the Remparts claimed the Gilles Courteau Trophy. Gaudet tallied nine postseason points for Quebec.

Tucker Robertson (SEA) had the series winner to claim Sunday’s second star as the Petes were crowned OHL champions. Robertson scored with 8:50 left in regulation to cap a postseason in which he notched 22 points (nine goals) in 23 games.

Michael Simpson’s fantastic postseason concluded with a 36-save performance to earn Sunday’s third star. Simpson, who claimed the Wayne Gretzky 99 Award as OHL Playoffs MVP, concluded the postseason with a 2.80 GAA and .918 save percentage in 23 games.
