Calgary Makes the Playoffs


solas

Recommended Posts

The playoff race in the North American conference was an interesting one - with Toronto and Quebec locks to make the top two spots and New York rebuilding, the battle was between the Seattle Bears and the Calgary Wranglers, two young teams that will surely look to become perennial championship contenders in the future.  While Seattle was the favorite of many to take the third spot in the playoffs, leading scorer Bogdan Podarok’s 40 goals and 74 points was unable to take the Bears to the promised land in Season 50.  The Wranglers were able to take a hold of the last playoff spot just as New York’s rebuild began, thanks in no small part to goaltender Ariel Weinstein, whom they traded for in the offseason.  

 

Weinstein finished the season with an impressive .929 save percentage, trailing only Toronto’s Hans Wingate (who had a .935).  Defenseman Marquis Hyvarinen led the team in scoring with 63 points, and rookie forwards Theo Axelsson and Travis Gowecny scored 58 and 54 points respectively.  Despite a tough finish to the season with five straight losses to the Meute and Legion, Calgary was able to take the third spot in the conference with a comfortable 14-point lead over Seattle.
