Riley Kidney’s season has come to an end at the hands of the Charlottetown Islanders. The silver lining for Habs fans is that they may soon get a chance to see him play anyways, as he will join the Laval Rocket on their playoff run. There is no word yet on if or where he will slot into the lineup, but his playmaking abilities should make him a useful ringer for Laval at some point.

That’s taking advantage of a loophole - Kidney is 19 and technically ineligible for the AHL even next season not having reached the minimum age. Since he signed his entry level contract, the Habs can sign him to a PTO for 10 days.

Laval Rocket take game 1 of their ahl playoff vs Rochester 

Game Summary here 

https://theahl.com/stats/game-center/1023853

Norlinder gets some ice time - Ylonen - meh! 

 

Other than Cayden Primeau, who made 31 saves & was the games 2nd star, there's not really any Habs Prospects shining down here. The star of the game, was Danick Martel, basically a fill in with no real future with the Habs. He scored 4 goals!  Mattias Norlinder with an assist & Rafaël Harvey-Pinard with an assist, were the only prospects? to register a point. It's almost like the Laval Rocket were built to be a French Canadian Team, and not a Development Team. No sign of Riley Kidney yet. And I wonder if we will even see him, as the coach, - Houle, said that the regular season was for development, and the playoffs were for winning. The only difference that I can see, between this farm team and all the previous farm teams is that this one is based in Quebec. Still not a whole lot of development going on. Of course, this was established by the previous regime so we can look  forward to HUGO putting their stamp on the Laval Rocket, beginning next year.

The Laval Rocket have signed forward Riley Kidney to an amateur tryout contract. (May 22)

Norlinder sits, Scheuneman, Ylonen negligible on the score sheet 

Lucas Condotta - a HUGO signing - one goal (1) - First career AHL playoff point. Cayden Primeau - 31 saves - 1st star.  3-1 final.

The Laval Rocket, win game one at home,   against the Rochester Americans, 6-1. Cayden Primeau, 31 saves.

The Laval Rocket, win game two at home,    against the Rochester Americans, 3-1. Cayden Primeau, 31 saves. 

The Laval Rocket, game 3 tied on the road, against the Rochester Americans, 5-5. after 4 periods. Cayden Primeau, 28 saves. Still no Riley Kidney.  Not a good game for CP2.

With the win, the Laval Rocket eliminate the Rochester Americans in 3 straight games. They are now in the final 4 and will play the winner of the Charlotte Checkers/Springfield Thunderbirds. Currently, the Thunderbirds are up 2-0.

Think we made a mistake with Sami Niku. He has 8 assists in 8 games. Who ever he signs with in the off season, hope he gets a chance to play. 

I’m not as certain in that - he’s very one dimensional power play specialist that doesn’t play much defense. Besides we have a good block of LHD prospects - Norlinder sat this game.

Yeah. It's the AHL, after all. I'm not super excited about a 25 year old defender excelling in Laval.

Norlinder got rocked that is why he is not playing he took an elbow to the face.

Not the first time one of our prospects took a major cheap shot from an opposing player in the 'A'. They need to suspend these guys for a season!

Defenseman Mattias Norlinder will not play in the series against the Thunderbirds after being the victim of a hit to the head in the previous round.
