Heading into the third round of the Calder Cup the Comets were looking to face their toughest opponents yet: The Grand Rapids Griffins (affiliates of the Detroit Red Wings). In this series preview we had noted that while the Comets had the advantage in possession numbers, the Griffins had top end forwards that were due to regress, better special teams and the higher string of PDO so far.
Similar to the last two rounds this match up basically went as predicted. The Comets were the better team at even-strength but the Griffins were able to keep up with the Jonses thanks to their special teams. Jacob Markstrom continued to stand strong as he ensured the Comets were able to win in a record of only 6 games.
Read past the jump to see what went down.

While all the talk in this upcoming draft is centred around Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel, 2015 could become the year of the defenseman given the huge crop of talented CHLers available. We've already profiled one Saint John Sea Dog in our countdown, and today we'll look at another: the aggressive and very well-rounded Czech import Jakub Zboril.

To be completely honest and up front, I think we've underrated Pavel Zacha fairly significantly. The massive Czech centreman fell well short of lofty expectations in his first full season in North America, but has still garnered enough recognition within the scouting community to get top-10 consideration in 2015.
Join us after the jump to explore one of 2014-15's biggest statistical disappointments that could still turn out to be very, very good.
