The NHL's Western Conference had some of the most dominant teams in the 2013-14 season — including Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles — thanks largely to forwards such as the Kings' Anze Kopitar, Anaheim's Corey Perry and the Chicago's' Jonathan Toews.
After a banner year in 2013 at the NHL Draft, the QMJHL appears to have settled back to more familiar levels when it comes to the draft class of 2014. While there may be no Nathan MacKinnon or Jonathan Drouin to highlight the list of eligible players this year, it is another Halifax Moosehead, Nikolaj Ehlers, who appears set to be the first QMJHL player to hear his name called on Friday night in Philadelphia.
Despite coming into the final game having played almost two extra ‘games’ at the 2014 MasterCard Memorial Cup, the Edmonton Oil Kings found something extra in its reserves in defeating the Guelph Storm, 6-3.
An undrafted free-agent, 20-year-old Guillaume Gelinas was hoping to make a big impression in this year’s MasterCard Memorial Cup, but an injury suffered in his second game almost derailed that opportunity.
