Avalanche prospect Kelsey Tessier and the Moncton Wildcats saw their postseason run come to an end Tuesday night following a 4-3 overtime loss to the Windsor Spitfires at the 2010 MasterCard Memorial Cup.
Windsor’s Eric Wellwood knocked home the game-winning goal at the 12:22 mark of the extra session to help the defending Memorial Cup champions top the Wildcats.
Tessier picked up an assist on teammate Randy Cameron’s power-play goal at 18:36 of the opening frame, which gave Moncton a 1-0 lead. It was Tessier’s first point in three games at the Memorial Cup.
Moncton earned a spot in the 2010 MasterCard Memorial Cup after storming through the Quebec Major Junior Hockey league’s playoff bracket. Along the way, Tessier ranked second among all QMJHL postseason scorers with 30 points (14g/16a) in 21 contests.
The Wildcats finished winless (0-2-1) in three games during round-robin play at the Memorial Cup. The team was trying to become just the second club to ever bounce back from an 0-2 start to win the tournament. Windsor accomplished the feat one year ago.
