Hutchings hit 75 points for the first time in his OHL career. Barrie clinched the overall top seed in the OHL with the win. The Bulls have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. According to the Belleville Intelligencer, DeCoste missed the game with a concussion sustained in Bellville’s last match-up with Barrie.

With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

This was a huge win for the Wolves on the road against a team above them in the standings. With Niagara also winning and Oshawa losing, Sudbury is three points up on Oshawa for the last playoff spot in the East with three games remaining. They are one point behind No.7 Niagara and two behind No.6 Peterborough. While getting the eighth seed means you’re in, you’re also going to face Barrie – the CHL’s top ranked team who has just nine losses.

The Giants broke their four-game losing streak in a big way. Wright scored for the first time since February 15. This was Wright's first fighting major since he took on Atlanta's 6'7" Boris Valabik the day after Christmas. The Giants have basically clinched the B.C. Division title so they’re in line for the West’s No.2 seed, though they are tied for the fourth best point total in the conference with Portland behind Everett, Tri-City, and Spokane. They have three games remaining.

His plus/minus is second in the league.

With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

Ashton hasn’t scored a goal in seven games. He’s going to have to push it to reach his previous career high of 30 goals in a season, set last year. This was a big loss for the Pats, who now trail the Broncos by nine points for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference. That was a big four-point swing for the Broncos.
