Ryan Kujawinski played a big part in North Bay's 4-1 series win over Barrie with 3 goals and 2 assists in the series. He had a goal and an assist in both games 3 and 4 as well as the double overtime winner in game 4, which you can see below. North Bay will take on Oshawa in the OHL Eastern Conference Finals.

The good news is that Kujawinski's season continues. The bad news is that Joseph Blandisi's season has ended. Blandisi had 2 goals and 3 assists in the series against North Bay. He finishes the playoffs with 6 goals and 8 assists in 9 games. He finished his OHL career with 108 goals and 136 assists in 246 regular season games as well as 6 goals and 9 assists in 14 playoff games.

John Quenneville and Brandon won their series 4-1 over Regina. Quenneville had a goal and 2 assists in the series, including the assist on the overtime, series clinching goal by his brother in game 5. He is now up to 4 goals and 5 assists in 10 playoff games. Brandon will take on Calgary in the WHL Eastern Conference Finals.

The Old Man: Scott Clemmensen finished an up and down year on a high note by winning Albany's final 3 games by stopping 100 of 106 shots (.943 SV%). He had a .942 SV% across 12 games in March and April. 36.21% of the goals he allowed came on the PK so it seems he still struggles when down a man compared to other goaltenders but overall he still had a more productive year than Wedgewood, which unfortunately, says a lot about Wedgewood's prospect status.

Finishing Strong: Stefan Matteau finished the year on a 4 game scoring streak with 3 goals and an assist. He had 7 goals and 3 assists over his last 14 games.

An Unkind Year: Since the start of 2015, Reid Boucher had just 5 goals over the span of 35 games. That is including an empty net goal and just a single even strength goal. He averaged 2.89 shots per game during that time but shot just 4.95% which seems awfully unlucky.

Heading to the Czech Republic: According to Tom Gulitti, Stefan Matteau (USA) and Raman Hrabarenka (Belarus) will be participating in the IIHF World Championships. This will be Hrabarenka's 4th time playing for his country in this competition.

Orlando lost the first 2 games of their series to Florida. Ben Johnson and Mike Keenan were just returned from Albany so they did not play in either game. Alexandre Carrier did not play and Maxime Clermont played half of a game in relief. Eric Baier was unable to get on the scoresheet for Orlando.

Prospect of the Week

Ryan Kujawinski picks up this week's honors after helping his team advance in the OHL playoffs. He had 2 goals and 2 assists over 3 games last week and notched a double overtime winner. Hopefully he can continue to produce for North Bay. I suppose the Devils are letting him concentrate on the playoffs and will try to sign him after his season ends.

ADevil of the Week

Joe Whitney was named the AHL Player of the Week for the second time this season. He finished the season on a 4 game scoring streak with 3 goals and 5 assists during that time. Over his last 9 games he had 5 goals and 11 assists. Whitney was tied for 15th in the AHL in scoring, was 17th in assists, and tied for 5th in PP assists. He led Albany in scoring, had the best goals created per game (0.35), and EV goals created per game (0.20). He'll be a key player for Albany to retain this summer though he may look for oppurtunities elsewhere in North America or Europe.
