Hello and welcome to the latest Capitals Prospect Update. In addition to all the news and notes, I will give you up-to-date stats on all of the players on the top 50 list.
The Portland Pirates (AHL) have finished their regular season with a record of 46-23-10 placing them second in the New England Division behind Hartford (N.Y.R.). Portland starts the playoffs on Wednesday against Worcester (St.Louis). Goaltender Martin Brochu completed his amazing season by being named team MVP, the AHL’s top goaltender and AHL league MVP. The Pirates will have to start the post-season without leading scorer Glen Metropolit, who will make a run for the Stanley Cup with the Capitals.
The Hampton Roads Admirals (ECHL) have started their playoffs with a first round series against Huntington. They are up 2-1 in the best of five series, with game 4 going tonight. The Admirals have five players on loan from Portland: Forward Mike Omicioli, Defensemen Gerad Adams, Mike Siklenka and Dean Stork, as well as Goaltender Curtis Cruickshank.
The NCAA held their “Frozen Four” final tournament last week and Boston College (Kevin Caulfield) lost the finals to North Dakota 4-2. The IHL Houston Aeros (Scott Swanson) finish the regular season next week, and should make the Western Conference Wild Card series. In the OHL, Guelph (Charlie Stephens) lost their first round series to Plymouth 4-2, while London (Krys Barch) missed the post-season.
