Western Hockey League


Brett Howden is tied for the league-lead in playoff points thus far with nine points, including two goals, in just four games.  He also had 24 goals and 64 points in 68 contests with the Moose Jaw Warriors.  The player he’s tied with is 19-year-old Adam Brooks.  The Regina Pats forward excelled in the regular season with 38 goals and 120 points in 72 contests.  He has added another four goals and five assists in four playoff contests.  On the goaltending side of things, Mario Petit has stood out with a 1.33 GAA and .953 save percentage in three contests.  That’s in contrast to the regular season where he only appeared in 15 games and posted a 2.80 GAA and .883 save percentage.


Ontario Hockey League


Mitchell Marner dominated during the regular season with 39 goals and 116 points in 57 contests with the London Knights and he hasn’t slowed down in the playoffs.  Through four games he already has four goals and five assists.  The Toronto Maple Leafs took him with the fourth overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.  His Knights teammate Tyler Parsons has posted a 2.03 GAA and .940 save percentage in four postseason contests.  He had a 2.33 GAA and .921 save percentage in 49 regular season games.  Nathan Todd had 17 goals and 50 points in 53 games with the Ottawa 67’s in the regular season and he’s found another level early in the playoffs.  Through four games he has four goals and nine points.  Michael Dal Colle has two goals and nine points in three postseason contests.  The New York Islanders prospect had 35 goals and 80 points in 60 games with the Oshawa Generals and his current Kingston Frontenacs in the regular season. 


Quebec Major Junior Hockey League


Mathieu Bellemare has gotten off to a great start in the 2016 playoffs by surrendering just four goals over his first three starts.  That gives him a 1.33 GAA to go along with a .907 save percentage.  A.J. Greer has six goals and eight points in four contests with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the 2016 playoffs.  The Colorado Avalanche prospect also had 16 goals and 27 points in 33 regular season contests.  His Huskies teammate Francis Perron has done even better though as he’s recorded three goals and 13 points in four postseason contests.  He had 41 goals and 108 points in 62 regular season contests.  In the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, he slid to the 190th overall pick before the Ottawa Senators picked him up.  Gabryel Paquin-Boudreau has five goals and eight points in four contests with the Gatineau Olympiques.  He had 34 goals and 75 points in 60 regular season contests.
