Alas, here we are in April with many teams and players done for the season.

The field is set for the 2016 Calder Cup Playoffs, and eight teams in the Eastern Conference are ready to battle it out for the AHL’s ultimate prize – the beloved Calder Cup.

While teams like Toronto, Albany, Hershey and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton cruised into the postseason in the final months, the other half of the conference’s playoff teams had some work to do to get where they are now as the AHL’s ‘second’ season gets underway. Read more»

Heading into the CHL playoffs, the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies locked down the number one seed in the BMO CHL Top 10 Rankings, ahead of OHL powerhouses the Erie Otters and London Knights. The Huskies finished the regular season leading the QMJHL with a record of 52-9-3-2; they were a consistently strong team all season long, but bolstered their potent lineup with a few transactions prior to the league’s trade deadline.

The number of names that have taken Drake Caggiula off his feet this season is an awfully short one, and an unlikely source tagged him behind the net while North Dakota was in the midst of advancing to the 2016 NCAA Frozen Four. Quinnipiac also earned a berth with a pair of highlight-reel goals, and JT Compher’s no-look pass is a must-see. Also in this week’s Prospect Impressions, the CHL playoffs are underway, and a pair of veterans unleashed furious shots to put their teams ahead in the clutch. Read more»
