    Winterhawks had 4 forwards that wrecked the WHL in the early 2010's. (2011-2012 -> 2014-2015)
    - 1 Ed Chynoweth Cup (2 x losing the finals)

    Oliver Björskstrand (Columbus Blue Jackets)
    Nic Petan (Toronto Maple Leafs)
    Brendan Leipsic (Washington Capitals)
    Ty Rattie (Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, KHL)

    combined

    (regular season) 537 goals, 771 assists, 1308 points (1.35 ppg)
    +534 with 816 penalty minutes

    (WHL play-offs) 152 goals, 194 assists, 346 points (1.15 ppg)
    +124 with 305 penalty minutes

    regular+WHL play-offs

    689 goals, 965 assists, 1654 points, +658 with 1121 penalty minutes


    Any Winterhawks fans have something to say about those 4 seasons?;

    Portland. So there.
    Having seen where Derrick Pouliot and Tyler Wotherspoon have gone, one thing I tend to note is that it may not be a big surprise that the year the Hawks made the Memorial Cup final was the year Seth Jones was with the team. Not that Matthew Dumba hurt in his one year. A fair amount of the defense from those teams was simply the Winterhawk attack keeping teams on their heels. That's how well-oiled that machine was.

    Heck, Bjorkstrand was rarely more than a 2nd liner on those teams. He was the guy with the size (once his frame filled out), however.

    (Maybe this will get others to respond?)
