ICE-CAPSules

  • O’Dell Can’t Crack 30: Eric O’Dell entered the final weekend of the season two goals shy of becoming the first IceCap to reach the 30-goal plateau and managed to score in Saturday’s win over Toronto, getting him to 29. However, the Ottawa native wasn’t able to bulge the twine one more time and finished the season stuck on 29. The sophomore forward led his club in goals (29), points (55), plus/minus (+9), power play goals (10), power play assists (10), power play points (20), game-winning goals (4), first goals (7) and shooting percentage (20.1%). O’Dell also finished 20th in league scoring.
  • Finishing Strong: Josh Lunden had a terrific weekend, scoring three times and adding a pair of assists for five points in three games. Lunden finished the season with a four-game point streak (4G, 2A) and recorded nine points (5G, 4A) in nine April contests. Overall, Lunden set personal bests for games played (31), goals (8), assists (10), and points (18).
  • Finishing Strong Redux: Ben Maxwell ended his season even hotter than Lunden, notching six points (2G, 4A) over the final three games and 10 points (2G, 8A) in his last six outings. Maxwell finished third on the team in assists with 29, four behind Jaffray’s team-best 33. The B.C. native recorded 20 points (6G, 14A) in the final 20 games of the season and suited up in a team-high 74 contests.
  • Redmond Returns: D Zach Redmond was reassigned by the Winnipeg Jets to the IceCaps last week on a conditioning assignment as part of his rehab after suffering a serious leg injury in late February when he was cut by a teammate’s skate in practice. Redmond looked as smooth as ever, picking up an assist in each of the two games he played and quarterbacking the team’s power play unit.
  • Jets Update: Winnipeg picked up five of a possible six points last week but still finds itself on the outside looking in with regards to playoff positioning in the tight Eastern Conferece. Winnipeg sits three points back of the eighth place New York Rangers and the Southeast Division leading Washington Capitals with just three games left to play. The Jets face the Buffalo Sabres Monday night before taking on Capitals Tuesday in a pair of must- win games.
  • Injury Report: Jason King (head), Hunter Tremblay (head), Ivan Telegin (head), John Albert (hand), Richard Petiot (undisclosed), Patrice Cormier (head), Jason Gregoire (undisclosed), Kael Mouillierat (upper body), Vinny Saponari (undisclosed).
