The WHL and the OHL
Starting in the CHL, almost all the Canucks prospects are in the underdog seat.
D Tate Olson
Tate Olson has not been able to cause much damage against the Seattle Thunderbirds, who now have a 2-0 series advantage against Olson’s Prince George Cougars. After losing 4-1 in Seattle for the second game, the series will now shift to Prince George for games three and four.
Olson, despite having just one assist in the series, is playing a lot of minutes in big times for his club. His physical play seems formidable by all means for the former seventh-round pick.
C Kyle Pettit
After a two-goal effort in game one of the Erie Otters series against the Saginaw Spirit, Kyle Pettit got himself a third goal in the second game, one that the Otters took 7-3 to jump to a 2-0 series lead. The Otters will now play as the visitors for the next two games.
More amazing is Pettit’s faceoff stats. In game two alone, Pettit won 20 of the 27 faceoffs he took. Great to see that he is continuing in the right direction after winning 61.7 percent of his draws this season, one which he had 21 points.
