Flyers defense prospect Philippe Myers and the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies will play for the Memorial Cup Championship on Sunday.
The Huskies earned a 3-1 victory over the host city of Red Deer in the semifinals on Friday night and will now face off against the powerhouse London Knights, who were OHL Champions and went 3-0-0 in the round robin tournament.
Myers was a plus-1 in the semifinal game and had three shots on goal. He has two points (1g-1a) through four games, including a game-winning goal, in the round robin portion of the tournament and a plus-2 rating.
The Huskies, who were QMJHL regular season champions with an impressive record of 54-9-3-2 for 113 points, advanced to the Memorial Cup tournament by winning the President Cup as QMJHL Champions, going 16-4 through the tournament.
Rouyn-Noranda will be looking to capture their first Memorial Cup in the team’s 20-year history.
The London Knights went 16-2, which included winning 13 consecutive games, to capture the OHL Championship and advance to the Memorial Cup Tournament. Combined with their 3-0-0 record in the tournament, London is riding a 16-game winning streak heading into Sunday’s Final.
Myers is looking to become the first Flyers prospect to win the Memorial Cup since Eric Wellwood won in back-to-back years in 2009 and 2010 with the Windsor Spitfires. The Final is set for Sunday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on the NHL Network.
