Quickie Red Wings prospect news: Mantha shut out as Val-d’Or loses; Wheaton, Tvrdon, Rockets advance
by George Malik on 04/10/14 at 12:52 AM ET
Three Red Wings prospects took part in playoff action on Wednesday night, and they experienced mixed results.
In the QMJHL, Anthony Mantha was held off the scoresheet and finished at -2 as his Val-d'Or Foreurs dropped a 3-2 decision to the Drummondville Voltigeurs. Drummondville's win ties the teams' second-round series at 2 games apiece. Mantha still has 7 goals, 4 assists and 11 points registered over the course of 8 playoff games played;
In the WHL, things went better for Mitchell Wheaton, Marek Tvrdon and the Kelowna Rockets. Tvrdon had a goal and an assist as Kelowna defeated the Seattle Thunderbirds 5-2, sweeping Seattle and advancing to the WHL's Western Conference Finals, where the Rockets will probably play the Portland Winterhawks. Tvrdon has 5 goals and 6 assists for 11 points in 9 playoff games played, and Wheaton, who finished at +1, has 4 assists in 9 playoff games played.
