Maple Leafs prospects update: Andreas Johnson is SHL Champion!

London's up 2-0 on Erie, QMJHL series are both tied.

Tommy Holl

Andreas Johnson and the Frolunda Indians won the SHL championship over the weekend. Frolunda handily defeated Skellefteå in five games to take the win, and KatyaKnappe can tell you all about it here.

Johnson was a little ghost-like on the scoreboard during the later rounds of the playoffs, but hopefully that's not an issue with the Leafs/Marlies next year, I mean he's won everything he could with Frolunda, come share that experience here.

In the OHL the London Knights are taking a series that everyone that would be close and well contested and running away with it. Outscoring the Otters 13-5 after two games, the Knights look to be making quick work and can wrap up the series over the next two games on home ice. Mitch Marner is not slowing down at all as he makes his way through the playoffs, he has six points in those two games.

It's a little different in the QMJHL, where the Huskies (Dzierkels) and the Cataracts (Timashov) are tied in the QMJHL semi-finals 1-1 in their respective series.

Neither are lighting things up, but they aren't hurting their teams either.
