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.

With the recent infusion of Jensen into the Vancouver Comets Canucks fans of the team have had something to be excited for as we head towards (hopefully) the draft lottery. Ideally with some good, tactful positioning in this year's draft and some smart choices by the GM (whomever that may be) there's a very real possibility that we'll have a nice collection of young players to monitor closely next year.  

But before we get there, we still have plenty to discuss with the current crop of prospects in the system. Continue past the jump to read the latest in Comets Militia updates, the OHL, and the NCAA (along with some other notes coming from the WHL, ECHL, and Europe).

Dimitri has said it a few times -- when it comes to professional sports, a fanbase's interest in their team's prospect pool has an inverse correlation with how successful their parent club has been performing. I like to call it the "Filipovic Rule".
