DOBSON AND DURANDEAU UP 2-0 IN QMJHL SECOND ROUND:

Noah Dobson and the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies lead the Victoriaville Tigers 2-0 in the second round of QMJHL playoffs. 

Dobson has a goal and an assist through the first two games of the series, bringing his playoff totals up to 12 points (3G, 9A) in eight games. Dobson, the Isles' 2018 first-round pick, leads all QMJHL defensemen in goals (3) and points (12) in the postseason and is tied for third in scoring overall. 

After surviving a seven-game, first-round scare, Arnaud Durandeau and the Halifax Mooseheads are up 2-0 over the Moncton Wildcats in the second round of the QMJHL playoffs.

Duradneau has two assists through the first two games of the series, bringing his playoff totals up to eight points (4G, 4A) in nine games. The Islanders' 2017 sixth-round pick (165th overall) is riding a five-game point streak (1G, 4A) and has hit the scoresheet in seven of Halifax's nine playoff games.
