Red Wings prospect Tyler Bertuzzi scored a pair of goals as the Guelph Storm finished round-robin play at the 2014 Memorial Cup with a commanding 7-2 victory over the host London Knights at Budweiser Gardens Wednesday night.

Scott Kosmachuk, a Winnipeg Jets' prospect, had a hat trick, and Jason Dickinson, selected by the Dallas Stars with the 29th pick of the 2013 NHL draft, had a goal and two assists for Guelph.

Robert Fabbri, a center listed at No. 21 on NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American skaters for next month's NHL draft, also had two assists.

Guelph, the champions of the Ontario Hockey League, ended London's season for the second time in two months. Guelph beat London in the second round of the OHL playoffs on April 11.

The Storm's next play is Sunday in the championship game (4 p.m. EST; NHLN-US, Sportsnet) against the winner of Friday's semifinal between the Edmonton Oil Kings and Val-d'Or Foreurs. The 7 p.m. semifinal can be seen on NHLN-US and Sportsnet.

Guelph is 3-0 in the Memorial Cup, outscoring its opponents 18-7. London finished the tournament 0-3, allowing 13 goals.

Brett Welychka and Josh Anderson scored for London. Goalie Anthony Stolarz, a Philadelphia Flyers' prospect, allowed three goals on 17 shots. He was replaced early in the second period by Jake Patterson, who allowed four goals on 21 shots.

Kosmachuk, taken by the Jets in the third round (No. 70) of the 2012 draft, scored two goals in the first period. The 6-foot, 185-pound Toronto native leads all scorers with three goals and six points.

Welychka scored a power-play goal with 2:55 remaining in the first period, but Bertuzzi restored the Storm's two-goal lead with a power-play goal 2:23 into the second. The nephew of Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi has a tournament best five goals.

Anderson, a 2012 fourth-round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets, got London within one goal at 3-2, but Bertuzzi, who was drafted No. 58 overall last June, scored his second of the game with 3:55 left in the second, and then Dickinson scored on the power play 1:20 into the third.

Kosmachuk finished the hat trick at 8:01 of the third, and Marc Stevens, a prospect for the upcoming draft, closed the scoring with a goal with 2:36 left in the third.
