by Dan Marshall

Saturday, April 1

[Editor's note: Islanders Director of Player Development Dan Marshall is the man responsible for communicating with the organization's prospects on a daily basis. During the course of the season, Dan travels thousands of miles to visit with the prospects and monitor their development. Dan has been kind enough to volunteer to send us periodic updates on how some of the team's prospects are doing in the playoffs of the Ontario Hockey League and Western Hockey League.]

BLAKE COMEAU (2004 second round pick)
Left wing -  Kelowna vs Kootenay (WHL 1st round)

Friday night in Kelowna British Columbia Blake Comeau helped his team take a 3 games to 2 lead in the series vs Kootenay, by setting up the game-winner on the power play and scoring his third goal of the playoffs into the empty net to seal a 4-1  win. Blake seems to really feed off the home crowd at Prospera Place and the fans in return feed off of Blake's big hits and smart playmaking."

LUCH AQUINO (2005 seventh round pick)
Center - Brampton vs. Belleville (OHL first round)
Friday night in Brampton Ontario, Luch Aquino scored his fifth GOAL of the playoffs and assisted on the other Brampton goal, but it was not enough as Belleville's goaltender Sebastian Dahm made 34 saves in the win. Luch is one of those players if he gets two or three chances to score he is going to bury it. Luch
has really matured and has polished his game in Brampton under the tuteladge of head coach Stan Butler.
