By Brian Weidler, "Game Time" Prospect Department
The only Blues' prospects still playing are those in major junior and the USHL... and most of them were sitting back this week and waiting for the second round of their league playoffs to start. There were a couple of exceptions, however, as one series out West went to a Game Seven, and the USHL playoffs just got under way in the last week.
When this week began, there were ten prospects who were still alive in the postseason; only three of those saw their seasons end this week -- and one of them even got to skate his league's championship trophy on a lap around the ice. So every prospect who played this week will be featured today, either in the "Fab Five" or at least an Honorable Mention
