Likely 2013 first rounder Bo Horvat scored his second goal of the game with less than a second remaining in regulation to give the London Knights a come-from-behind series win and the OHL championship. Barrie was up 3-1 in the series over the favored Knights, but couldn’t close out the defending champs. Barrie’s loss means Lightning prospect Jake Dotchin is done for the year – the last drafted/signed Lightning prospect still playing outside the AHL. We will continue to follow Halifax’s Nate MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin through the Memorial Cup tournament. The Lightning could pick one of the two with the third overall pick in this summer’s draft. WHL Portland, London, and tournament host Saskatoon will join Halifax in the tournament.

London staved off elimination with a 6-4 win at home in Game 5 vs Barrie. Lightning prospect Jake Dotchin was back in the Colt lineup after missing five games due to suspension. He did not register a point on Friday. London had a 4-1 lead entering the third period, and though the Colts twice cut the lead to two goals, they could never complete the comeback. Barrie will have another chance to clinch the league championship Saturday night at home.

Halifax won their first President Cup as QMJHL champs with a 5-1 win on Friday night. Jonathan Drouin, the league’s regular season MVP, won playoff MVP with 35 points in 17 games. Halifax will travel to Saskatoon to participate in the 2013 Memorial Cup next week.

Note: With the Lightning picking No. 3 in this summer’s draft, it is expected they will choose either MacKinnon or Drouin with their first round pick. While that could change, we will follow both prospects for the duration of their playoff run as we did with Steven Stamkos after the Lightning won the 2008 draft lottery.

On Thursday, he faced fellow Lightning prospect and Team Russia teammate Artem Sergeev, who was plus-3 with an assist. Kucherov is a boost for the Huskies lineup as they move toward the playoff race.

Lightning prospect Jake Dotchin was scoreless in a low-scoring Barrie win in St. Catherine’s. Niagara is no doubt missing uber-prospect defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who is on the verge of making the Boston Bruins.
