In that first round, Lysell recorded four goals and 11 assists for 15 points as Bruin’s 2021 first-round pick was all over the ice. Lysell kicked off the 2021-2022 WHL playoffs with a five-assist game in his playoff debut. He was vital in helping the Vancouver Giants upset the number one seeded Everett Silvertips.
Lysell has been filling up the stat sheet since day one of the WHL season as he recorded 22 goals and 40 assists for 62 points over 53 games played before the playoffs started.
After a quiet game one and two of the second round of the playoffs, the Giants fell to a 0-2 deficit. Lysell came to life in a crucial game three that saw the Giants win 3-2 over the Kamloops Blazers. Lysell finished the game with two assists, including setting up teammate Alex Cotton for the game-winning goal in the third period.
Lysell now has four goals and 13 assists for 17 points throughout the first two rounds as he looks to lead the Giants to a series comeback to advance to the third round. The Giants’ next game will be tonight as they look to even the series at 2-2.
