Chicago’s Radovan Bondra and Graham Knott were knocked out of the playoffs. Bondra had five points (two goals, three assists) in six playoff games for Prince George of the Western Hockey League. Knott had four points (two goals, two assists) in a seven-game series against London of the Ontario Hockey League. Knott’s season isn’t over though as Windsor hosts the Memorial Cup, which begins May 17.
