1-MELFORT MUSTANGS (23-8-2-0) 3rd last week
Another killer week from Ball and Albrecht hides the fact there is a ton of depth on this team and Parkinson continues to offer elite goaltending.
2-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS (22-8-2-2) 2nd last week
They are starting to score more in addition to being stingy defensively. Shorrock, Benson, and Bosch are all at a point per game this month and defenseman Kleiner has 4 goals in 7 games.
3-NIPAWIN HAWKS (24-9-1-1) 1st last week
Hobbs goes down, Pugliese steps in and the Hawks don’t miss a beat defensively.
4-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS (19-9-2-4) 5th last week
Winners of three straight and their rivalry with the Klippers figures to heat up in the second half as they battle for first place.
5-YORKTON TERRIERS (19-12-1-0) 7th last week
They’ve strung together some impressive wins, but they lack overall consistency as evidenced by the Melville loss on Saturday.
6-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (19-11-0-2) 6th last week
Long road trip to Kindersley doesn’t bring any points in the standings home for Christmas.
7-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (21-13-2-1) 4th last week
They’ve taken a tumble with only two wins in their last ten overall.
8-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (15-16-2-4) 9th last week
Unbeaten in three and the return of Conor MacLean has been a positive one with three goals in four games.
9-ESTEVAN BRUINS (16-18-2-0) 8th last week
Coming off a win against Weyburn, but was beaten earlier in the week by Melville as they continue to struggle to find traction.
10-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES (11-19-2-2) 10th last week
They’ve split their last ten. Entz looks like he’s found his form and the trio of Borynec, T.Shewchuk, and Spadafora has some chemistry.
11-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (7-27-1-0) 11th last week
DiPaolo and Perreault have been a bright spot on defense with great offensive numbers in their last five.
12-WEYBURN RED WINGS (10-20-3-0) 12th last week
It’s been a real struggle going winless in five and giving up way too many goals in the process.
