Swift start for prospects at \'09 Memorial Cup
newjerseydevils.com – It was a productive weekend for Devils prospects at the 2009 Memorial Cup tournament, which got underway Friday in Rimouski, Quebec.

Adam Henrique, the Devils’ fourth choice, 82nd overall, in last year’s Entry Draft, had both tallies in the Windsor Spitfires’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Drummondville Voltigeurs (QMJHL) on Saturday. Henrique scored at even strength, then struck on the power play.

His Windsor teammate Harry Young added an assist Sunday, but the OHL champion Spitfires slipped to 0-2 with a 5-4 loss to the host Oceanic (QMJHL). Young, who wears the “C” on the Windsor blueline, was New Jersey’s eighth pick, 202nd overall, in 2008.

Rimouski’s Patrice Cormier cracked the scoresheet with a power play goal in Sunday’s contest. An alternate captain for the Oceanic, Cormier was taken with the Devils’ third choice, 54th overall, in 2008.

The tournament continues this week, with broadcast coverage available on the NHL Network. Henrique and Young will be back in action Tuesday, when Windsor faces the Kelowna Rockets (WHL) at 7 p.m. ET.

Cormier and the Oceanic take on Drummondville on Wednesday. The semifinal match of the nine-day event is set for Friday at 7 p.m., with the title game to be decided Sunday at 4 p.m.

The Memorial Cup, widely regarded as one of the toughest trophies to win, features the three Canadian major junior championship squads – and a fourth from the host city – in a round-robin tourney.

The four teams compete in a full regular and postseasons before getting a shot at hoisting the 91-year-old trophy.

Past winners have included Devils head coach Brent Sutter, who coached the Red Deer Rebels (WHL) to the 2001 title, and forward David Clarkson (Kitchener, 2003). Former Devils Scott Stevens (Kitchener, 1982) and Scott Niedermayer (Kamloops, 1992) also won.
