SABRES PROSPECTS REPORT
The opening round of the United States Hockey League playoffs concluded over the weekend, with just one of the three Buffalo Sabres prospects involved advancing to the next round.

The opening round of the United States Hockey League playoffs concluded over the weekend, with just one of the three Buffalo Sabres prospects involved advancing to the next round.

Cal Petersen (2013, fifth round) made 23 saves Thursday as the Waterloo Black Hawks moved on to the Clark Cup Semifinal with a 7-2 victory over the Sioux Falls Stampede. Petersen, who started all three games of the best-of-five series sweep, is expected to get the call again when the Black Hawks open the Western Conference Final on Friday against the Sioux City Musketeers. Petersen allowed nine goals on 82 shots in the opening round to improve to 5-2 with a 3.69 GAA and .885 save% in seven career playoff starts.

Elsewhere, Connor Hurley (2013, second round) was stifled as Green Bay was eliminated in four games thanks to back-to-back 1-0 losses to Indiana on home ice. Hurley contributed two of the Gamblers’ 12 shots on goal in Thursday’s Game 3, and produced another three shots in the season-ending defeat on Friday. Hurley finishes postseason play with four points (2+2), all of which came in Green Bay’s Game 2 victory. The 6-foot-2 centerman will move up a level next season when he joins the University of Notre Dame in the ultra-competitive Hockey East conference.

Judd Peterson (2012, seventh round) watched the final two games from the stands with an ankle injury as Cedar Rapids was eliminated from postseason play Saturday with 7-3 loss at Dubuque. Peterson completes the postseason with no points and five shots on goal in two games. The 20-year old is set to enroll at St. Cloud State University in the fall.
