Adam Brooks has 117 points for the Regina Pats this season. This is a great number for the Maple Leafs prospect, but even better for Pats fans, he’s not the top scorer. Sam Steele (Ducks) has 123 points, and the two are providing a great one two scoring punch for the favourites to represent the WHL in the Memorial Cup. Brooks had a great weekend with 8 points in three games.

Nikita Korostelev returned from injury this weekend for the Petes and had two points in his return, and Martins Dzierkals had six points this weekend and Jeremy Bracco had five.

In the NCAA, Joe Woll and Boston College will face Boston U. in the Hockey East semi-finals on Friday, and the rest of the NCAA conferences, kick off their own playoff seasons this weekend.
