Bolts in the Pipeline: February 27th - March 5th

The Otters have got-ter it.

Terry Wilson / OHL Images

It was a very good week to love high-scoring games. The Erie Otters scored 20 goals - yes TWENTY - in three games this week, but somehow only managed to win one of those games. Four points for Taylor Raddysh, and six for Anthony Cirelli, made it a good weekend on the stat sheet, if not the scoreboard.

In playoff news, Ross Colton missed both of Vermont’s playoff games with an unspecified injury. He’s listed as ‘day to day.’ Vermont pulled out the win despite missing their top scorer and will face Boston College in the second round.

More NCAA playoffs start this upcoming weekend, and the CHL teams have less than 10 games left in their seasons. Things are heating up!

As always, take a gander at BoltProspects.com for more prospect news.
