Elias Pettersson is breaking records again and the Utica Comets are on the verge of elimination. Here are this week’s top prospect performances.

We are nearing the end of our weekly prospects coverage at The Canuck Way. Playoff rounds are coming to a close and there isn’t a lot to check in with going forward. However, this week was full of Vancouver Canucks prospect action.

Over in Finland, TPS Turku played in their final game of the postseason, losing 3-2 to IFK Helsinki in the Bronze Medal game. Olli Juolevi and Petrus Palmu had no points in the contest. Juolevi finished the Liiga playoffs with seven points in 11 games. As for Palmu, he ended the postseason with six points in the same number of games.

Rick Dhaliwal confirmed that Juolevi will not join the Comets as he is trying out for the Finnish national team for the IIHF World Championships.

You can also check out his twitter page to check out what Sami Salo had to say about the young defenceman. The quick summary is that Juolevi played well and will have to work on his defensive play and especially his strength and conditioning. That should bode well. We all know Travis Green is very judgmental regarding these areas.
