Notebook: New Auger Rumour Surfaces

The latest Sebastien Auger trade rumour comes from Steve Carr, a Mooseheads colour analyst for News 95.7.
This seems like a weird deal from a Cape Breton perspective given that Auger will only be around for this season. From a Saint John standpoint, this would be a terrific return for a 20-year old goaltender.

The Chronicle Herald’s Willy Palov also tweets that Remparts goaltender Callum “Booth is Saint John's No. 1 target but Quebec is reluctant. First-round picks are plan B for Sea Dogs.”

“Auger is available but he hasn't been dealt yet,” Palov added. “Just passing on the prices”

Charlie Coyle’s season came to an end last night as the Chicago Blackhawks eliminated the Minnesota Wild from the playoffs. Patrick Kane scored in overtime to give the ‘Hawks a 2-1 win in Game 6.

Last night, Coyle had three shots in 21:29 of ice time. In 13 post-season games this year, he recorded three goals and four assists.

Nathan Beaulieu had a good night on Monday. Playing in his first Stanley Cup Playoff game, the defenseman setup a key goal in the Montreal Canadiens’ 4-0 victory over the Boston Bruins.

Beaulieu’s long feed up ice found Max Pacioretty at 15:24 of the second period to give the Habs a 2-0 lead at the time.

The former Sea Dogs defenseman also had one shot and was a +2 in 9:36 of ice time.
Game 7 is tonight in Boston.

With the Red Wings’ season over, Tomas Jurco is back down in Grand Rapids playing with the AHL’s Griffins. What a night he had last night.

In Game 3 of the Western Conference semi-final, Jurco had three goals, five shots, and seven penalty minutes in Grand Rapids’ 5-2 victory. His night included a fight against Curtis McKenzie in the third period.

Here are the game highlights:

The Stars lead the series 2-1. Game 4 is tonight.

At the IIHF World Championships in Belarus, Canada defeated the Czech Republic 4-3. Jonathan Huberdeau picked up his first point of the tournament – an assist – on a Joel Ward first period goal. Huberdeau had 11:06 minutes of ice time.

Canada’s next game is tomorrow against Denmark.

The AHL’s Chicago Wolves announced on Friday that Ryan Tesink has been assigned to the team. The Wolves are currently down 2-0 in their Western Conference semi-final series to the Toronto Marlies. Tesink has not seen any action yet.
