Americans’ Rasmussen named WHL On the Run Player of the Week
Rasmussen, who was selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the first round, ninth overall, of the 2017 NHL Draft, registered seven points (4G-3A) and a plus-five rating in two games as the Americans took a commanding 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven Round Two series against the Victoria Royals in the 2018 WHL Playoffs
Not too shabby. Michael Rasmussen has 19 points in 6 playoff games so far and is second in WHL playoff scoring. I think this kid might have a future.

I predict that the Lightning against the Predators would probably be the most fun Stanley Cup Final matchup. It will suck when we end up with the Blue Jackets taking on the Wild.
