The series did not start at the same time in the WHLthe ooh and the QMJHL.
the WHL and the ooh started their playoffs around April 21 and the QMJHL around March 5.
the three leagues junior The Canadians had still played a 68-game per team schedule.
How do we balance everything? the QMJHL held three out of five in its first three rounds, as the West and Ontario decided to continue the tradition of four of seven.
But hey… everyone is in the same place this morning when the identity of the two finalists from each league is known. And the three finals will be played four out of seven.
end of the WL: Edmonton Oil Kings against Seattle Thunderbirds
The Oil Kings are 12-1 since the start of the playoffs, playing in the same stadium as the Oilers in Edmonton (Rogers Place).
Kaiden Guhle (14 points in 13 games) is the backbone of the Oil Kings. Remember that the Prince Albert Raiders traded him for several draft picks and prospect Carson Latimer.
Guhle is the fifth leading scorer among all defensemen in the WHL in series.
Dylan Guenther (Edmonton) and Jared Davidson (Seattle) are the best forwards on both teams.
the first game in the series: is tomorrow in Edmonton.
end of the ooh: Hamilton Bulldogs against Windsor Spitfires
The Bulldogs, who have not lost a single game since the start of the playoffs (12-0), have been waiting since last Friday to find out who their rival will be in the Final of the ooh. They know since last night.
The Windsor Spitfires managed to eliminate the Flint Firebirds with a 4-0 win at Windsor.

Two Canadian hopefuls are part of the Bulldogs: Jan Mysak and Arber Xhekaj.
Mysak, a CH second-round pick in 2020, scored a hat-trick in his team’s final game. He now has three goals and five assists in 10 playoff games (ninth in scoring on the team).
Defender Arber Xhekaj has been a bully since the beginning of the playoffs: Five goals, four assists, plus-1526 penalties, and several shocking controls.
Dammit, I can’t wait to see you at Place Bell next year.
Logan Morrison (Bulldogs) and Wyatt Johnston (Spitfires) are the best forwards on each team.
The first game in the series: is tomorrow in Hamilton.
QMJHL Final: Charlottetown Islanders against Shawinigan Falls
the first series four of seven of the QMJHL will pit a team from Quebec (who won their match #7 last night against the Remparts) against a team from Prince Edward Island (which however has two Canadiens hopefuls).
The Islanders have only lost one game (9-1) and are, in my opinion, the big favorites for this final of the what.
Xavier Simoneau (CH’s 2021 sixth-round pick) has put up 14 points in 10 playoff games. Defenseman William Trudeau (CH’s fourth-round pick in 2021) for his part earned eight points from 10 games.
Mavrik Bourque (Cataracts), Xavier Bourgault (Cataracts), Olivier Nadeau (Cataracts), Patrick Guay (Islanders), Lukas Cormier (Islanders), and Brett Budgell will be the other players to watch.
The first game in the series: is tomorrow in Charlottetown.
Remember that the winner of each of the three leagues junior Canadians will have the opportunity to participate in the Memorial Cup tournament June 20-29 in St. John (with the Sea Dogs). How many CH hopefuls will there be in this tournament?
A lot of

Therefore, Simoneau will miss the first match of the final. #CoupePresident
