Maple Leafs prospect recap: Korostelev done in round one, Nielsen to the Marlies

The CHL playoffs march on with two fewer Leafs.

Metcalfe Photography

Round one of the CHL playoffs is over and two of our prospects have seen their seasons come to an end. Andrew Nielsen and the Lethbridge Hurricanes were upset  by the Regina Pats, losing their series in five games. Nielsen isn't done yet however, as he's signed a ATO with the Marlies and will join them for the rest of the AHL season.

Last night Nikita Korostelev and the Sarnia Sting lost game seven of their first round series vs the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, a bit of an upset since the Sting were the #2 seed, the 'hounds #7.  No word if the Marlies opened up a seat on one of their buses for Nikitia to join them. He had an injury keep him out of the line up for a good part of the season, so he may be given the summer to rest and rehab.
