Bolts prospects: Drouin, Blujus still alive in junior hockey playoffs
The CHL playoffs are underway with QMJHL and OHL each holding their respective playoffs all leading up to the Memorial Cup, which will be hosted by the London Knights May 15-26.
Jonathan Drouin and his Halfax Mooseheads teammates are looking to defend their QMJHL title and their Memorial Cup championship.
Jonathan Drouin, Forward - Halifax Mooseheads
Bolts prospect Jonathan Drouin and his Halifax Mooseheads teammates are currently playing in a best of seven semifinal playoff series versus the Val-d’Or Foreurs, with the winner earning the right to play for the QMJHL President’s Cup. Drouin has consistently put up points all throughout the 2014 playoffs, scoring 11 goals and recording 21 assists in just 12 games played. Drouin will need to continue to play at a high level, as his team is currently down 2 games to 1 in the series versus the Foreurs. Halifax beat the Foreurs in both meetings during the 2013-2014 regular season.
Dylan Blujus, Defenseman - North Bay Battalion
Dylan Blujus was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and now plays for the OHL’s North Bay Battalion. Blujus and his teammates are currently in contention for the J. Ross Robertson Cup, which is awarded to the OHL champion every year. Blujus has played in 16 games in this year’s playoffs, scoring 3 goals and recording 4 assists for a total of 7 points. The Battalion currently have a commanding 3-0 series lead against the Oshawa Generals, with the chance to clinch the series and move on to the finals with a win in their next game.
