Prospects Thrive in Postseason
BostonBruins.com -- While most of the Boston Bruins prospects’ season has come to an end, four players are still trying to help their team capture a championship trophy.

Hamilton. For the full Prospect Report click here.
Two B’s prospects, Jared Knight of the London Knights and Tyler Randell of the Kitchener Rangers will go head-to-head in the OHL Western Conference Finals in a best of seven series to reach the J. Ross Robertson Cup Finals.

The series begins Thursday, April 19 at London at 7 p.m.

After Knight sprained his ankle in Game 1 against the Windsor Spitfires in the opening round of the playoffs, he returned to the lineup April 6 and helped the London Knights take a 4-2 series victory over the Saginaw Spirit in the Western Conference Semifinals. In the series, Knight had two goals and three assists to help lead his team win the series.

Knight had 26 goals and 26 assists in 52 games played during the regular season.

Randell has only played in two playoffs because of his 10-game suspension for his hit on Artur Garvus in Game 1 against Owen Sound March 23 in the opening round of the playoffs.

But the Rangers forward returned to the lineup in dramatic fashion, as he scored four goals to lift Kitchener to a 6-3 win and series victory in Game 7 against the Plymouth Whalers April 17. Randell also scored two goals in Game 1 before his hit on Garvus.

In the Eastern Conference, Niagara defenseman Dougie Hamilton looks to help his team advance past the Ottawa 67s in a best of seven series, which begins April 20 in Niagara.

Hamilton continued his tremendous season and recorded three assists as the IceDogs swept the Brampton Battalion 4-0 in the Semifinals, and he has two goals and nine assists for 11 points this postseason.

The IceDogs blueliner led all OHL defensemen with 17 goals and 55 assists for 72 points during the regular season in only 50 games played.

In the USHL, Bruins prospect Zane Gothberg and the Fargo Force is making a run for the Anderson Cup.

In the opening round of the playoffs, Gothberg made a total of 53 saves to lead his team to a 2-0 series sweep over the Sioux City Musketeers. In the first game, Gothberg made 26 saves in a 2-1 overtime victory April 16, then followed it up with 27 more in a 5-1 win April 17. The Force will face the Lincoln Stars in the Western Conference Quarterfinals, which begin Friday, April 20.
