CHL Playoffs/Habs Prospects – Round 1

Over the course of the 2015-16 season, there has been 5 prospects of the Montreal Canadiens playing among the Western Hockey League (WHL), Ontario Hockey League (OHL), and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).

Unlike the 2014-15 season where all 7 of the competing Habs prospects were heading to their respective league’s playoffs, only 4 out of 5 this year are headed to the post-season. Matt Bradley and the Medicine Hat Tigers will be missing the 2016 WHL Playoffs. The 19-year old was drafted in the 5th round (131st overall) by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2015 National Hockey League Entry Draft. Bradley finished the season with 23 goals and 28 assists for 51 points in 68 games. He also had a -16 plus/minus rating and 35 penalty minutes throughout the season.

Draft: 1st Round (26th Overall) - 2015 / Montreal Canadiens
Team: Everett Silvertips (WHL)
- Record: 38-26-8 (84 Points) / 5th in Western Conference


Similar to his regular season, Noah Juulsen's playoff performance has taken a dip from last
year. Having said that, we believe in Juulsen and there is still a lot of games left to play
hockey. In this round, the blue liner had an assist and 6 penalty minutes. Everett sweeped
Portland in four games. This was definitely revenge for the Silvertips after losing to Portland
in five games last season in the Western Conference Semifinals. Everett will move on to face
Seattle in the next round.

penalty minutes and -1 plus/minus rating in total. Addison and the Ottawa 67's were eliminated
by the Niagara IceDogs in five games. We would like to congratulate Addison on his best
Ontario Hockey League season to date. The much improved prospect will be joining the
St. John's IceCaps for the remainder of the American Hockey League season.

Draft: 5th Round (147th Overall) - 2014 / Montreal Canadiens
Team: Sherbrooke Phoenix (QMJHL)

Assistant Captain Daniel Audette had a single assist in every game in this series, with his
best game coming in the first match-up where he also recorded a goal and 10 shots on goal.
Unfortunately for Audette and the Phoenix, their game #1 victory would be their first and last
of the playoffs as Shawinigan would win four straight to win the series. Audette will be
joining the St. John's IceCaps for the remainder of the American Hockey League season.

Simon Bourque had a very impressive individual performance in the first round with an
assist in every game except for game four, for a total of five assists, along with only
two penalty minutes. Unfortunately, the first round is the only round of 2016 QMJHL playoff
action that Bourque will see. The 8th place Rimouski fell to the 9th place Charlottetown
in six games.
