Brendan O'Donnell- Florida Everblades

As the Florida Everblades prep for playoff hockey in the sunshine state, Rookie Brendan O'Donnell continues to find his stride after a long layoff from injury. Over the last week Brendan picked up another 2 goals and 4 assists for 6 points in a pair of games. O'Donnell now brings his season totals up to 27 points (9 goals, 18 assists) in 46 games. The former North Dakota product will surely have his eye on the Frozen Four this weekend, as well as having his eye on this type of success throughout the ECHL Playoffs.

Brendan takes part in 1v1 Individual sessions at The Rink.

Keegan Kolesar- Seattle Thunderbirds

The trip to the Mastercard Memorial Cup is a long and grinding battle, but a battle every player signs up for at the beginning of the year. The first round of WHL Playoffs kicked off last week and a team who has a serious chance to win it all is Keegan Kolesar's Seattle Thunderbirds. The Blue Jackets draft pick registed 3 goals, 1 assist (4 points) in the playoffs so far that has Seattle up 3-0 in their series against the Prince George Cougars.

Keegan takes part in the Junior Pro Group over the Summer at The Rink.

Nick Henry- Portage Terriers

The Portage Terriers continue to be the class of the MJHL as the RBC Cup Champions continue to steam roll through the MJHL Playoffs. Rookie of the Year winner, Nick Henry, has continued his goal scoring touch into the playoffs where this past week he registered 2 goals and 2 assists in 2 wins over the Winnipeg Blues. Henry had 2 goals and 1 assist in a game 1 victory which also saw him pick up the First Star of the game. The series slides back into Portage for game 3.

Nick takes part in 1v1 Individual sessions at The Rink.
