Real quickly since it's timely, center Riley Holzapfel's eighth-ranked Moose Jaw Warriors are taking on defenseman Paul Postma's Calgary Hitmen in the WHL playoffs. Both of them had a goal last night in what was a 5-1 win by the Hitmen. Keep an eye on Postma. He's an up and comer.
Spencer Machacek's Vancouver Giants are playing Chilliwack, and they beat them 2-1 last night. Machacek also had a goal. Both games were Game 1 of what will be a seven-game series.
In the QMJHL, Angelo Esposito's Quebec Remparts are taking on Chicoutimi (my favorite Q-team name). They lead the series 1-0. In what has become a theme now, Esposito had a goal in the game -- shorthanded.
Defenseman Arturs Kulda's OHL Peterborough Petes are taking on the Belleville Bulls. They are even at 1-1 in the series. Kulda has one assist in those two games.
