Top-seeded Victoria, owned by Lightning co-owner Len Barrie, will not be advancing to the BCHL championship series. Despite coming back from a 3-1 series deficit, the Grizzlies lost on their home ice 4-1 in Game 7, ending the BCHL playoffs - but not career - of Lightning prospect Justin Courtnall. The former 7th rounder was second on the team in scoring during the regular season, but had a hard time finding the scoresheet during the playoffs for the second straight year.
