With the NHL and AHL teams have finished for the season things are starting to quiet on the Canucks prospect front. Very few teams are still competing in some fashion, with the conference finals in the OHL, WHL, and the ECHL playoffs being the only ones yet to conclude.

But never fear, because as long as there's any sort of prospect news, I'll be here with the Comets Militia Weekly Prospect Report, reporting on the latest.

Welcome to this week's Comets Militia Prospect Report. The Utica Comets, trying to fit in with their parent club, finally succumbed in their late bid for a playoff spot. But despite the fact that they've been eliminated and their season will end prematurely, they still have a couple of games left on the schedule. And beyond that, we've still got the OHL playoffs, WHL playoffs, and even the ECHL playoffs (go Kalamazoo!) to discuss.

Meanwhile, the Draft Lottery results are in and the Canucks will be picking 6th this summer. That'll provide us with a lot to discuss, with picks of that quality being such a rarity for this organization. It'll be a boon for prospect analytics, as well. What Dimitri conveniently forgot to mention is that I'll be around here all summer as well, working my way towards earning that 2-way blogger ATO. 

So keep tuned and as always, feel free to follow me on Twitter @nuckprospects for the latest in prospect news. You're more than welcome to send me any feedback on anything prospect related you wish for me to cover in the future.

With the Vancouver Canucks officially eliminated from playoff contention fans are starting to look to the future. With what's looking like what will be a decent draft position the Canucks are setting themselves up nicely to complement the batch of youngsters they brought into the mix last year. 

While the big club won't be in the playoffs, so of those aforementioned prospects are in their respective leagues, and as a result we've still got plenty to discuss in our Weekly Prospect Report. The Utica Comets are still scrapping for a late playoff berth, and in the Major Junior ranks there are 6 guys currently competing in the 2nd round. Meanwhile, the NCAA teams have wrapped up their seaons but over in Europe Kenins and Zurich may be making the National League A final.

While the Canucks continue to slough towards a top-8 pick in the draft the Utica Comets are continuing to make their final push towards earning a playoff spot in their inaugural season. This weekend was very critical for points as they were playing back-to-back-to-back games with two against the Abbotsford Heat at home. 

But it's not just "playoff season" in the AHL -- The WHL and OHL are just starting their second rounds, the NLA and the SHL in Europe are well underway in their post season, and most teams have already been eliminated in the NCAA as we head towards the Frozen Four.

It's been an exciting week for Canucks prospects. While the Canucks are trying to drag themselves out of a good draft pick, their prospects in the AHL are fighting to bring the Comets to the post season (and have a good chance of doing so), and the guys down in the Major Junior are sweeping series. Things are happening.
