Edmonton Oil Kings off to a 2-0 Series against the Moose Jaw Warriors

Laurent Brossoit has yet to lose a game in the playoffs backing the Oil Kings

Portland Winterhawks off to a 2-0 Series against the Tri-City Americans

Sven and Wotherspoon are doing great in the series both hard battled games both won in OT each game being 5-4 for portland

Would be great to see our 3 remaining prospects in the finals facing off against eachother, would like to see how sven can do against the wall that laurent brossoit has been during these WHL playoffs.

Brossoit was named goalie of the week in the CHL...

Brossoit was named goalie of the week for the second straight week. 19 consecutive wins including 10 in a row in teh playoffs.

Also, the Oil Kings game will be on SHAW tonight (6:00 I believe). The WHL site says channel 299 but I am not sure if that applies to the Calgary market or not.

Finally got a chance to watch Brossoit play - he is a beauty.

Reminded me of Pekka Rinne, somewhat: not quite as big (only 6'3") but looks similar, very good technically, and always square to the puck. Moves very efficiently, and as a result, makes it look easy. Controls rebounds like he has marshmallow pads.

Even though he wasn't real busy, he looked very solid and very intimidating.

Now 11-0 with a GAA under 1.50 and a SP around .950

It'll be a shame when Baertschi distroys him in the finals.

Oil Kings Franchise record winning streak ends at 22, as Laurent Brossoit experienced his first lose (5-1) in this years playoffs in round 3 with the series at 3-1 against the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Sven Baertschi and Tyler Wotherspoon, are having a slow series against the Tri-City Americans, Sven hasnt been his usual self getting the points he has in the previous series, but his team has been able to pick up a little slack as the series is 3-0 for the Portland Winterhawks

If everything goes right in the next couple days, we will have a prospect winning the Ed Chynoweth Cup, Ive always been cheering for Sven, But with Laurent Brossoit dominating in the net for the first 3 series for edmonton, it's hard to choose who to cheer for.

The future looks bright for the true Calgary fans.

I know what you mean. I am kind of hoping Brossoit gets to the Memorial Cup because I want him to get the recognition so that he has a good shot at the WJC next year.

But hard not to cheer for Baertschi

Oil Kings netminder Laurant Brossoit was named the Eastern Conference Championship Series MVP following the game and he will enter the WHL Championship with a league leading 1.62 GAA and a brilliant 0.945 save percentage.

Brossoit made 37 saves to claim the victory for the Oil Kings, who have won 23 of their last 24 games.

So.....do we begin considering Brossoit as a legitimate prospect now? Do we throw him in the same pool as guys like Ferland, Baertschi, Reinhart (guys projected to be NHLers at some point)?

He's definitely made a case to be in the discussion. As per all prospects, a larger sample size will tell us a better story. If we continues at this pace next season, I think we'll have a good prospect. If not, then he won't be the first youngster to have a great playoff payoff.

I think he's been a legitimate prospect since day 1. Everyone is a legitimate prospect until they prove themelves otherwise. Personally I like Brossoit from the first development camp I saw him. He moves very well and that really stood out for me.

I think it's still too early to start projecting him though it's his first real season as a starter and he needs to continue to build but is he a legtimate prospect absolutely.

definitely too early, but it is encouraging to see such a significant improvement in his numbers.

for those too lazy to look up his stats, in 34 games last year Laurent had a 3.32gaa and .887sv% this season (reg season & playoffs combined) he has a 2.31gaa and .920sv% in 74 games

i think nearly doubling his work load and his numbers still improving so much says alot about his physical and mental conditioning

2012 WHL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

EDMONTON OIL KINGS vs PORTLAND WINTERHAWKS

2011-12 head-to-head regular-season record:

Portland: 0-1-0-0, 0 pts

Edmonton: 1-0-0-0, 2 pts

Dylan Wruck scored once and set up three more as the Oil Kings got goals from eight different players in an 8-4 win over the Winterhawks in the lone regular-season meeting between the teams on October 21, 2011, at Rexall Place in Edmonton, AB.

Michael St. Croix and T.J. Foster each tallied a goal and two assists while Ashton Sautner, Kristians Pelss, Martin Gernat, Stephane Legault and Ryan Dech also scored for the Oil Kings, who scored the game’s first five goals. Curtis Lazar chipped in three assists. Oil Kings’ netminder Laurent Brossoit made 20 saves on 24 shots to post the victory.

Troy Rutkowski and Brendan Leipsic each tallied a goal and an assist while Ty Rattie and Jason Trott also scored for the Winterhawks, who converted two of five power play chances in the contest. Joe Morrow picked up a pair of assists in the setback. Mac Carruth stopped 15 of 20 shots over the first two periods of play in absorbing the loss for the Hawks, while Brendan Burke stopped five of eight shots in relief.

EDMONTON OIL KINGS

Husky WHL Eastern Conference Champion

2012 Playoff top scorers:

Curtis Lazar 13gp-8g-8a-16pts

Henrik Samuelsson 11gp-3g-10a-13pts

Tyler Maxwell 13gp-3g-10a-13pts

Michael St. Croix 13gp-5g-7a-12pts

How They Got Here…

-Defeated the Kootenay Ice 4-0 in 1st round.

-Defeated the Medicine Hat Tigers 4-0 in 2nd round.

-Defeated the Moose Jaw Warriors 4-1 in Husky WHL Eastern Conference Championship series.

The Edmonton Oil Kings are making their first appearance in the WHL Championship series in the modern history of the franchise. The original Oil Kings won back-to-back WHL Championships in 1971 and 1972. That franchise would eventually move, following the 1975-76 season, to Portland and become the Winterhawks.

Now in their fifth year of existence, the Oil Kings dominated the WHL Eastern Conference from wire to wire during the regular season and continued their dominance during the post-season, losing just one game en route to capturing the Husky WHL Eastern Conference title. With tremendous strength and depth throughout their lineup, the Oil Kings have easily handled whatever has been thrown at them so far in the post-season.

Up front, the Oil Kings have shown great offensive depth throughout the playoffs. The fact that they have been paced by two rookies, Curtis Lazar and Henrik Samuelsson, in scoring during the playoffs shows just how deep they are in their forward ranks. Top regular-season scorers Michael St. Croix, Tyler Maxwell and T.J. Foster have all chipped in consistent offense, while depth forwards like Stephane Legault, Mitch Moroz, Klarc Wilson and Jordan Peddle have all made big contributions as well. With so many weapons in their arsenal, it’s not hard to see why the Oil Kings managed to score over four goals per game, on average, over the first three playoff rounds.

Defensively, the Oil Kings have been airtight throughout the playoffs. The WHL’s best defensive team during the regular season, the Oil Kings have allowed only 22 goals through 13 post-season contests and have killed off 47 of 52 opposition power plays. Mark Pysyk, Griffin Reinhart and the rest of the Oil Kings’ defense corps have held their opposition to one or fewer goals in eight of 13 games during their run to the Eastern Conference title. Yet, their defense has also contributed 10 goals and 31 points to the offense. They will face their toughest challenge, yet, in stopping the Winterhawks’ star snipers like Ty Rattie, Brad Ross and Sven Bartschi.

Goaltender Laurent Brossoit has been a strong and steady presence in the Oil Kings’ net throughout the post-season. He showed he could step up his play during the Moose Jaw series as he faced an average of over 36 shots per game while allowing just nine goals over the five-game series. He will need to be just as sharp versus a Portland team that averaged better than 46 shots per game versus the stingy Tri-City Americans in the Western Conference final, and boasts some of the WHL’s most dangerous scorers.

Keys To Success:

-Defensive Domination: The Oil Kings’ offense has been great, yet it is the team’s defensive play and goaltending that has been the biggest difference maker on their post-season run. A strong penalty kill and tenacious defensive play will be crucial in the Oil Kings’ ability to shut down the WHL’s best offensive team.

-Strength in Depth: Though they have top-end offensive talent, the Oil Kings’ offensive success in the playoffs has been based on their scoring depth throughout their line-up. The team boasts 10 forwards who have scored at least three goals in the post-season, and 12 forwards with at least five points. Their ability to role four lines that can contribute offense will make life difficult on the Hawks’ defense corps.

PORTLAND WINTERHAWKS

Kal Tire WHL Western Conference Champion

2012 Playoff top scorers:

Ty Rattie 15gp-17g-12a-29pts

Sven Bartschi 15gp-7g-18a-25pts

Brad Ross 15gp-12g-8a-20pts

Marcel Noebels 15gp-5g-12a-17pts

How They Got Here…

-Defeated the Kelowna Rockets 4-0 in 1st round.

-Defeated the Kamloops Blazers 4-3 in 2nd round.

-Defeated the Tri-City Americans 4-0 in Kal Tire Western Conference Championship series.

The Winterhawks are back in the WHL Championship series for the second consecutive season. Last year, the Winterhawks lost in five games to the Kootenay Ice in the WHL final. It’s the Hawks’ 10th appearance in the WHL Championship series. They won the WHL championship in 1982 and 1998, and won the Memorial Cup as the host team in 1983 and in 1998 as WHL champions.

The Winterhawks will be looking to erase the bitter taste of last year’s defeat to the Kootenay Ice in the WHL final by earning the franchise’s third WHL Championship this year in their second straight appearance in the championship series. A skilled, offensively-inclined club, the Winterhawks possess a feared attack that is opportunistic and exacting. With an older, experienced roster, the Winterhawks have shown they can match up with any style of play brought by their opposition.

Led by Ty Rattie, the MVP of the Kal Tire WHL Western Conference Championship series, the Winterhawks ice a talented offense that can strike quickly and frequently. Rattie, a 57-goal man during the regular season, has taken his game up a notch in the playoffs, scoring a whopping 17 goals in just 15 games. He, Sven Bartschi, Marcel Noebels and Brad Ross have generated much of the Hawks’ offense. Shutting down Rattie has been nearly impossible for opposition defensemen throughout the playoffs. The Winterhawks will need secondary contributions from the likes of Oliver Gabriel, Taylor Leier, and Brendan Leipsic if they want to get the better of Edmonton’s deep and talented defense corps.

Defensively, the Winterhawks have allowed just under three goals per game, on average, through the first three rounds of the playoffs. Though they have been able to succeed by simply outscoring their opponents, the Hawks have turned in some great defensive performances when called upon, and have successfully limited top offensive stars like Brendan Shinnimin, Adam Hughesman, Brendan Ranford and Colin Smith over the first three rounds. Their ability to play strong defense will be key versus an Oil Kings team that boasts some offensive stars and tremendous scoring depth. The Hawks’ penalty killing unit has been strong at home in the post-season, but has surrendered 12 goals on 38 opposition chances on the road. They will need a strong penalty kill versus the Oil Kings, who boast a 27.6% power play success rate at home.

Mac Carruth continues to show he is a big-game performer for the Winterhawks. The 20-year-old from Shorewood, MN, has faced an average of nearly 36 shots per game throughout the playoffs, and boasts a very solid .920 save percentage. Carruth also has plenty of post-season experience to fall back on, having 47 career playoff games and 30 post-season wins under his belt. A fierce competitor, Carruth will certainly be hungry for a chance at redemption after having suffered through losing to Kootenay in last year’s final.

Keys To Success:

-Road Ready: The Winterhawks will need to win at least one game in Edmonton if they want to capture the Ed Chynoweth Cup. They’ve managed a 5-2 road record so far in the post-season, including winning both games versus Tri-City at the intimidating Toyota Centre in Kennewick, WA. Now, their task is to win a game at Rexall Place, where the Oil Kings have lost just seven times during the regular season, and are undefeated in the playoffs.

-Offensive Options: The Winterhawks have gotten the majority of their scoring from their top stars like Ty Rattie, Brad Ross and Sven Bartschi. Though it has been nearly impossible to completely shut down those top players, the Hawks will need scoring from other sources to break through Edmonton’s WHL-leading defense.

OIL KINGS TAKE GAME ONE OF CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES – The Edmonton Oil Kings edged the visiting Portland Winterhawks 3-2 in Game 1 of the 2012 WHL Championship series on Thursday night in Edmonton, AB.

Jordan Peddle’s shorthanded marker 14:30 into the second period gave the Oil Kings a 3-0 lead and proved to be the game-winner. Rhett Rachinski had a goal and an assist and Martin Gernat also scored for the Oil Kings, who went 0-for-5 on the power play but scored the shorthanded marker.

Marcel Noebels and Sven Baertschi scored less than two minutes apart shortly after Peddle’s goal to make it 3-2 before the end of the second period. But, that’s as close as the Winterhawks would get in the Game 1 loss.

Laurent Brossoit made 24 saves on 26 shots to record his 13th victory of the playoffs for the Oil Kings. Mac Carruth turned aside 26 shots in a losing cause for the Hawks.

The Oil Kings will host the Winterhawks for Game 2 of the 2012 WHL Championship series on Friday, May 4th in Edmonton.

Edmonton leads best-of-seven series 1-0

Sven Bartschi also scored twice and Taylor Peters got his first of the playoffs as the Hawks posted their sixth road win of the playoffs.

Kristians Pelss scored the only goal for the Oil Kings, who outshot the visiting Winterhawks 39-27 in the contest as they suffer their first loss on home ice in the post-season.

Mac Carruth turned in a 38-save effort for the Winterhawks to post his 31st career playoff win. Laurent Brossoit made 22 saves in a losing cause for the Oil Kings.
