Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- Johnny Gaudreau's home in Carneys Point, N.J., is littered with hardware.

The 20-year-old Calgary Flames prospect is looking to add one more to the mantle, an ESPY. But as the award nominations and accolades continue to pile up, so too does the expectation that Gaudreau can take the next step and jump into the NHL.

Gaudreau, the reigning Hobey Baker Award winner, is among the finalists for the ESPN honor of top male college athlete.

"It's exciting," he said Saturday following the Flames' first on-ice session at their annual development camp. "I'm up there against four pretty talented athletes. It's great to be recognized, and I'm going to be excited to get out there and meet the other guys."

Ed Klajman - NHL.com Contributor

LONDON, Ontario – Curtis Lazar has yet to play a game in the NHL, but he secured a spot for himself in the Hockey Hall of Fame by making Memorial Cup history Friday night.

The Ottawa Senators' 2013 first-round draft pick scored the winner for the Edmonton Oil Kings 2:42 into the third overtime of the semifinal against the Val-d'Or Foreurs, bringing to an end the longest game in the 95-year history of the Memorial Cup.

"It's the first overtime goal I've ever scored in junior hockey. I still have to digest it. They took my stick. It's going to the Hall of Fame and that's pretty cool," said the 19-year-old, who was selected 17th overall by Ottawa last June. "We have something special from this team every night and it was my turn tonight. I capitalized on the opportunity."

Val d'Or tops Edmonton in double OT at Memorial Cup

Tuesday, 05.20.2014 / 11:20 PM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Center Anthony Richard scored off a breakaway 1:15 into the second overtime to give the Val-d'Or Foreurs a 4-3 victory against the Edmonton Oil Kings in round-robin play of the Memorial Cup on Tuesday night at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario.

Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Antoine Bibeau made 47 saves for Val-d'Or and Oil Kings goalie Tristan Jarry (Pittsburgh Penguins) stopped 29 shots.

In attendance was Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis, who had to be pleased with the effort by Bibeau, a 2013 sixth-round pick (No. 172).

Richard scored his unassisted goal after picking up a loose puck in the neutral zone and speeding into the zone before delivering his first goal of the tournament through the five-hole. Richard shielded the puck from Edmonton defenseman Ashton Sautner, who was closing in fast from behind. It marked Val-d'Or's first lead of the game; the team rallied from 2-0 and 3-2 deficits.

It was the sixth time in Memorial Cup history that a game entered double overtime.

Ed Klajman - NHL.com Contributor

LONDON, Ontario -- It was not the game that was expected from Edmonton Oil Kings goalie Tristan Jarry on Saturday, in his first start at the 2014 Memorial Cup.

The 2013 second-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins (No. 44) allowed five goals on 32 shots as the Western Hockey League champions lost to the Guelph Storm 5-2.

Even Edmonton coach Derek Laxdal described Jarry's performance as "not great."

So how did the 19-year-old react to the disappointment of that game?

He emerged from the locker room the same way he always does after a game, with a big smile on his face.
