Devils prospects eye semis at Memorial Cup
newjerseydevils.com – A trio of Devils prospects are looking to move on to the semifinals at the 2009 Memorial Cup in Rimouski, Quebec.

Patrice Cormier of the Rimouski Oceanic (QMJHL) will battle Adam Henrique and Harry Young of the Windsor Spitfires (OHL) in Thursday’s tiebreaker (7 p.m. ET, NHL Network). The winner faces the Drummondville Voltigeurs (QMJHL) in Friday’s semifinal (7 p.m., NHL Network).

The semifinal winner moves on to meet the Kelowna Rockets (WHL) for the right to hoist the 91-year-old Memorial Cup on Sunday (4 p.m. ET, NHL Network).

Cormier had a goal Wednesday for the host Oceanic, who lost to Drummondville, 3-2, in overtime. Cormier, the Devils’ third choice in the 2008 Entry Draft, has two goals in three Memorial Cup games. The center notched 23 goals and 28 assists in 54 regular season games with the Oceanic before registering four goals and six assists in 13 QMJHL postseason contests.

Henrique was New Jersey’s fourth pick in last year’s Draft and has also had a successful tournament with two goals and two assists in three games. Another center, Henrique tallied 30 goals and 33 assists in 56 regular season appearances with the Spitfires, adding eight goals and nine assists in 20 playoff games. Windsor beat Brampton in five for the OHL title.

Young, a defenseman, was New Jersey’s eighth choice in 2008 and has one helper in this year’s Memorial Cup. He collected eight goals and four assists during the regular season despite being limited to 46 games. A Windsor native, Young had a goal and four assists for his hometown Spitfires in the OHL playoffs.

The annual Memorial Cup tournament features the three Canadian major junior championship winners and a fourth team from the host city in a round-robin format. The squads must survive a full regular season and win their respective league championship for a berth in the nine-day event.

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.
