Logan Mailloux: 15 points in 13 games since the start of the playoffs
As you know, the Canadiens have(had) five prospects in the CHL semi-final series: one in the West, two in Ontario and two in Quebec. The chances of seeing at least one CH prospect at the Memorial Cup are good.

As of today, however, the Canadiens have one less hope, as Riley Kidney saw his Olympiques swept aside by Patrick Roy’s mighty Quebec Remparts.

With 22 points in just 13 playoff games, Kidney had a strong finish to his junior season. He may not have dominated at the same level against the Remparts (two goals and two assists in four games), but neither did anyone else in Gatineau.

Next step? Probably the Rocket next year.

Remember, he’s not the only Canadiens prospect playing in the QMJHL. Joshua Roy, who was blanked for the first time in the series in the Phoenix’s loss (the club’s first in the playoffs) on Tuesday in Halifax, has 23 points in 11 games.

His 11 goals show he’s on another level. Will he do enough to help Sherbrooke, which leads 2-1 in its semi-final series, get past the Mooseheads to take on the Remparts for a shot at the Gilles-Courteau Trophy?

In the WHL, a lesser-known prospect (Jared Davidson) has two goals and an assist in three games against Kamloops, the host of the Memorial Cup tournament. His Thunderbirds lead the series 2-1.

He has 16 points in 11 games, and Seattle has just one setback since the start of the playoffs.

As we look around the OHL, we’re keeping an eye on two quality prospects who are important to the Montreal Canadiens’ future: Owen Beck and Logan Mailloux.

Beck doesn’t seem to be in top form at the moment. After a one-goal, one-assist game in the series opener against North Bay, he has just one assist in three games.

In 14 playoff games, he has 10 points, including four goals.

The series is currently tied 2-2. And even though North Bay has a better club and the Petes weren’t supposed to be there (the surprise win over Ottawa changed all that), we’d sure like to see more from Beck.

And if there’s one prospect who’s making the Habs happy right now, it’s Logan Mailloux.

Obviously, both Q prospects had big series, but when a defenseman has 15 points (including five goals) in 13 games in his first playoff opportunity, it’s very noteworthy.

The man with five points in his last three games is one of the reasons London hasn’t been downgraded in the last two games. In the Knights’ two losses, he had four assists on his team’s six goals.

The series is tied 2-2 against Sarnia due to London’s two early home wins.
