In game 1 of the series Everett out shot Kelowna 28 to 18, as Everett's defensive system prevailed. Blake scored the third Kelowna goal with less than five minutes to play to bring the Rockets within one, but first round prospect ('06 draft) Peter Mueller scored an empty-net goal to seal the win .

JASON PITTON (8th round pick 2004) Wing
Round 2 of the OHL Playoffs
Guelph Storm vs Plymouth Whalers
Guelph leads 2 - 0 in the series

Game 1 Guelph 4 vs Plymouth 1 (Compuware Sports and Entertainment Arena, MI)
Game 2 Guelph 3 vs Plymouth 2 in overtime (Guelph Sports and Entertainment Arena, Ontario)

In game 1 Jason scored his third goal of the playoffs late in the third period into the empty net to help the Storm to an important win on the road.

In game 2 Jason really used his size and strength to set the tone and help Guelph to a 3-2 victory in OT. At the beginning of the third period with Guelph trailing 2-1, there was a physical battle down low in the Guelph end and Jason ended up sticking up for one of his smaller teammates, taking one of Plymouth's best players to the box with him. Right after both penalties were up Guelph gained the momentum and tied it up and eventually won it in OT. The series now goes back to Plymouth on Monday.

Stats:GP/6 G/3 A/0 PTS/3 PIMS/6

 

LUCH AQUINO (7th round pick 2005), forward

Game 1 Brampton 4 vs Barrie 1 (Powerade Centre , Brampton Ontario)
Game 2 Brampton 1 vs Barrie 4 (Molson Centre, Barrie Ontario)
Game 3 Brampton 1 vs Barrie 6 (Powerade Centre, Brampton Ontario)

In game 1 Luch scored the game-winning goal, scoring two goals and one assist and was 1st star of the game.

In game 2 and game 3 Barrie seemed to neutralize Brampton's top line.

In game three Luch and top rated prospect (06' Draft) Bryan Little for Barrie dropped the gloves with Luch trying to spark his club going into Barrie for game 4 on Tuesday.

Stats:GP/9 G/7 A/9 PTS/16 PIMS/19

 

NICK TUZZOLINO (7th round pick 2005), defenseman
2nd round of the OHL Playoffs
Sudbury Wolves vs Peterborough Petes
Peterborough leads the series 2 - 0.

Game 1 Sudbury 1 vs Peterborough 3 (Peterborough Memorial Centre, Ontario)
Game 2 Sudbury 1 vs Peterborough 6 (Peterborough Memorial Centre, Ontario)

In game 1 Nick was very physical and was called for eight minutes in penalties as the Petes scored twice on the power play.

In game 2 Nick played a disciplined game , but his teammates could not stay out of the box as the Petes scored three times on the power play to go up 2 - 0 in the series.

"They are so strong down low on the power play and we just couldn't get anything going offensively. It will be good to get back home to Sudbury on Monday to  regroup," said Nick.

Stats:GP/8 G/0 A/3 PTS/3 PIMS/20
