Memorial Cup Round Robin

The round robin portion of the Memorial Cup is over. Here are the results:

1. Spokane Chiefs 3-0 Spokane won all three of their games, but none were dominant wins. They have been led by Drayson Bowman (Carolina Hurricane draft pick) who leads the tournament in scoring with seven points and 2008 draft eligible Mitch Wahl. Dustin Tokarski, who is also eligible for the 2008 draft, has been very good in their goal.

2. Belleville Bulls 2-1 Belleville sits in second place with a 2-1 record. Shawn Matthias (Florida Panther draft pick) and Cory Tanaka, who is undrafted, have been their offensive leaders. Undrafted Mike Murphy has played well in goal.

3. Kitchener Rangers 1-2 The host Kitchener team is third. Undrafted Justin Azevedo is their top scorer. Mikkel Boedker, who is 2008 draft eligible, has provided strong defence. Likely he will be the highest drafted Danish born player ever in this year's draft. Their weak point has been in goal where Josh Unice (Chicago Blackhawk draftee) has an .872 saves percentage. This team would really get a boost if their number one goalie Steve Mason (Columbus blue Jacket draftee) returns from injury, but that is starting to look unlikely.

4. Gatineau Olympiques 0-3 Gatineau has been outclassed by their opponents. Michael Stinziani, who is undrafted, leads them in scoring. Also undrafted Darryl Smith has also played well. Ryan Mior, also undrafted, has been solid, but unspectacular in goal.

Tonight Kitchener and Bellville play in the semi-final of the tournament with the winner moving on to face Spokane in the final on Sunday.

Go Spokane! Of course I always cheer for the Winterhawks when the Chiefs come to town, but the 'Hawks are in so much trouble there's no reason to withhold cheering for another USA division team.
