It seems like just yesterday that we were talking about October/November, and the first On the Rush of the 2015-16 campaign was being put together. Alas, here we are in April with many teams and players done for the season.

In this week’s Prospect Impressions, a trio of rookies notched their first NHL playoff goals this week, continuing to contribute right where they left off from the regular season. Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Steve Mason is going to want a half-ice deflection back, and his teammate might want to join him in hiding for a pretty funny reason.

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.
