1-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS (46-9-1-0)
A loss to Nipawin and some drama at the end of the game could create a rivalry for a future playoff series.
2-NIPAWIN HAWKS (38-14-2-1)
After trailing Flin Flon all season, they are now in the driver’s seat for first place in the division.
3-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (36-14-2-3)
They hold tiebreaker advantage on the Hawks. Help is needed, but first place is still possible.
4-ESTEVAN BRUINS (34-17-2-1)
Playing some of their best hockey as of late with just two regulation losses in their last ten.
5-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (29-24-1-1)
Unbeaten in three and they know they’ll have a playoff date against either Nipawin or Flin Flon in round one.
6-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (24-22-6-2)
Maybe the team nobody wants to play right now. Winless in two, but they appear to have resolved whatever it was that ailed them earlier in the year.
7-YORKTON TERRIERS (25-25-5-0)
Not out of the question that they’ll face natural rival Melville in the Wildcard Round of the playoffs.
8-WEYBURN RED WINGS (25-24-2-4)
Three games left, including one against the Hounds which could determine the coveted sixth spot.
9-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS (25-28-3-0)
They’ve been consistently inconsistent, which has to be maddening for Geoff Grimwood.
10-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES (21-30-3-0)
Two weeks ago, the season looked lost. Now, they’ve got momentum and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they squeaked into the playoffs.
11-MELFORT MUSTANGS (20-28-2-4)
Two time defending champs have fallen and are unable to get up.
12-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (6-44-1-4)
Winless in 26 with three to go.
