So if you're looking for a few teams to follow or cheer for in the post-season, here are a few with some familiar names.
Goalie John Gibson hasn't seen any playoff action this year but remains with Anaheim who lead the Winnipeg Jets 2-0 in their opening round best-of-seven series. One-time Rangers pick Jacob Trouba plays for the Jets.
D Robert Bortuzzo has his Blues tied 1-1 with Minnesota while you can cheer for D Yannick Weber with the Canucks, who trail the Calgary Flames 2-1.
Ottawa forwards Mike Hoffman and Matt Puempel are one game away from being eliminated by the Montreal Canadiens.
Blueliner Jakub Kindl is with Detroit in their battle with Tampa (series tied 1-1) while Pittsburgh's Steve Downie and Nick Spaling look to upset the New York Rangers.
Assistant captain Ryan MacInnis is with the Portland Pirates - but has yet to see any game action - as the eighth seed takes on No. 1 Manchester in the opening round of the playoffs beginning Thursday. Former Rangers' D-man Matt Lashoff is also a Pirate while F Andrew Crescenzi is across the ice.
Goalie Jake Paterson is with the Grand Rapids Griffins, but is stuck behind netminders Tom McCollum and Jared Coreau and has yet to play an AHL tilt after his ECHL call up. The Griffs take on the Toronto Marlies in the first round of the playoffs, who feature F Josh Leivo.
F Tyler Randell and D Steve Eminger will try and get the sixth seeded Providence Bruins past the third ranked Hartford Wolf Pack. There were rumblings that D Max Iafrate may be joining the Bs but that has yet to happen.
Rookie F Matia Marcantuoni's Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins face the Syracuse Crunch, who have one time Rangers pick Matt Peca in their lineup.
Utica will lean on D Frank Corrado in its best-of-five against Chicago while Rockford has D Brandon Mashinter for its tilts against the Texas Stars with F Radek Faksa and F Kevin Henderson, though Faksa is done for the year after having shoulder surgery.
Goalie Franky Palazzese is sizzling in the post-season with a 1.98 GAA and .929 save percentage but his Wheeling Nailers are tied 1-1 with Toledo in the best-of-seven opening round.
Fort Wayne has a 2-0 lead on Kalamazoo with D Cody Sol in the back end.
F Paxton Leroux is on Quad City who are tied with Royal City 1-1.
Of course, Justin Bailey (S00), Brent Pedersen (Osh) and Cory Genovese (Erie) are all still alive in the OHL playoffs.
