Windsor advances to Memorial Cup semis
newjerseydevils.com – Adam Henrique added two more assists Thursday, as the Windsor Spitfires advanced to the 2009 Memorial Cup semifinals with a 6-4 win over the host Rimouski Oceanic.

The OHL-champion Spitfires will face the Drummondville Voltigeurs (QMJHL) in Friday’s semifinal (7 p.m. ET, NHL Network). The winner takes on the Kelowna Rockets (WHL) in the final on Sunday(4 p.m., NHL Network).

Windsor rallied Thursday from a two-goal deficit courtesy of Dale Mitchell’s hat trick. The Spitfires trailed 3-2 after one period and 4-2 after two before scoring four goals in the final frame.

Henrique set up Eric Wellwood for the game’s first goal at the 7:13 mark of the first. He recorded a second helper on Greg Nemisz’s power play tally with one second left in regulation.

Henrique was New Jersey’s fourth pick in last year’s Entry Draft. The young center is tied with Drummondville’s Yannick Riendeau for second in Memorial Cup scoring with six points in four games (2g-4a).

Patrice Cormier had a goal and an assist for Rimouski. The Devils’ third choice in 2008 exited the Memorial Cup with four points (3g-1a) in four games.

The annual Memorial Cup tournament features the three Canadian major junior championship squads and a fourth team from the host city in a round-robin format.

The teams compete in a full regular season and must 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). Defenseman Bryce Salvador advanced to the finals with Lethbridge (WHL) in 1996-97.

Former Devils Scott Stevens (Kitchener, 1982) and Scott Niedermayer (Kamloops, 1992) have also won the coveted 91-year-old trophy.
