Monday's Portland Winterhawks' News and Notes: Checking in on Portland's Signed Prospects

Bronson Sharp is now with Portland for the playoff run, could someone else join him?

Bronson Sharp:
-He returned to the Winterhawks yesterday and got into the Hawks' regular season finale. He was able to return, as his team: Yale Hockey Academy Prep fell in the round robin round of the CSSHL playoffs. Yale fell in three straight games in Group B, though they were in every game. He had a point in each of the three games in a losing effort. Sharp should be with the Winterhawks now for the rest of their playoff run, though he likely will not see much, if any action.

Ilijah Colina:
-His Valley West Haws won the BCMML title by beating the Cariboo Cougars in two straight games during the BCMML final and will now move on to represent B.C. at the Pacific Regional Midget Championship. Colina had eight points over the seven games in the playoffs, good for fifth on the team. The PRMC will go April 1st-3rd and if Valley West wins that, they will move on to the Telus Cup.

Bradley Ginell:
-His CRAA Blue team dropped two of three games in the round robin round of the AMMHL's Sutter Cup South playoffs. and were thus eliminated. They were knocked out, not because of him as he scored six points in the three games. He is an affiliated player for the Calgary Royals of the AMHL, but they were already eliminated, so continuing to play in Alberta, does not seem to be an option for the 2000 born forward. I would be surprised if Portland pulled him out of school and had him ride the bus with the team during the playoffs.

Jake Hobson:
-He played two games with the Weyburn Red Wings of the SJHL at the end of they year and is still listed on their roster, though he has not gotten into either of the first two games of their Quarter-Final series vs. Flin Flon. As far as I understand it, it's up to Hobson (and all of the others) whether they want to join the Winterhawks for their playoff run. If they do not, they are totally free to play somewhere else, like Hobson is doing with Weyburn.

Winterhawks in the NHL Monday:
-Tyler Wotherspoon returned to the NHL and received 18:47 of ice time in Calgary's 5-2 loss to Toronto. He blocked two shots and threw two hits.
-Ryan Johansen led Nashville to a big 5-2 win over the L.A. Kings, by scoring once and adding two assists.
