It’s done: now we know the four teams that will go to the Memorial Cup, which will take place from 20 to 29 June in the Maritimes. We are talking about the Saint John Sea Dogs, the Shawinigan Cataractes, the Hamilton Bulldogs and the Edmonton Oil Kings.
We already knew that the poor Sea Dogs, who have been on vacation for a month after dropping him in the first round of the Q playoffs, would struggle during the tournament, but clearly there won’t be an easy customer.
There will be reasons to follow each team: Sea Dogs are from QMJHL, Cataractes represent Quebec and the other two clubs will have one or more hope for the Canadiens.
We already knew Kaiden Guhle was going to be there to represent Edmonton (and he’s proud of it), but two more hopes were added on the sidelines of the Bulldogs victory last night: Arber Xhekaj and Jan Mysak.
Last night, Mysak (one goal, +4 in game) and Xhekaj (two assists) did well in game # 7 of the Ontario final. They got their hands on the title by winning the match 6-1 and notably created a goal together.
That goal scored 4-0 in the match.

The (unknown) hope of CH Daniil Sobolev, who plays at Windsor, will therefore not go to the Memorial Cup.
CH wannabes may not have 39 points in the playoffs like teammate Logan Morrison, but Xhekaj (16 points from 18 points) and Mysak (11 points from 17 games) still have a say in all of this.

The first game is Monday night between the hosts and the Bulldogs. We will then be able to quickly see two CH wannabes in action, which is good for Flannel fans.
Guhle will come into play later, but that won’t stop him from having a great summer. Let’s hope he’s not too tired next year…
– Nice night in Springfield yesterday for me and my colleagues… despite the loss of the Rocket.
If ever some people wonder “Is Charles behind the Rocket bench tonight in Springfield?” watching the game on tv …

– Partially yes.
According to Stéphane Waite, “Cayden Primeau was the best player of the @RocketLaval in series. “
