1-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS (1) 44-9-2
Battling some injuries down the stretch, but they’ve clinched top spot in the league.
2-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (2) 34-13-5
They have to feel real good about how well they’ve played the North Stars. If they meet up in the league final, the Bombers should be confident.
3-YORKTON TERRIERS (4) 32-19-1-1
Riding unbelievable goaltending from Bond and Pesenti to five straight wins and the driver’s seat for the three seed. Bond stopped 58 on Friday and has faced 46 shots or more in 4 of his last 5 starts.
4-ESTEVAN BRUINS (6) 26-21-3-1
Remember they used to not be able to score? Gallagher, JDavis, Harrison, Nicholas, and Savage are all at a point per game or better since January 1. Asham-Moroz, TaManz, and Thomas are very close to a point per game (17 total games). Flin Flon can’t be excited about the potential of a long drive in the first round and facing a team that really isn’t a 7 seed now.
5-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (5) 29-19-3-2
They’ll have to make do without number one goalie McGarva for the next month (suspension), but they’ve won seven of ten and their last three as they seek home ice advantage in the first round.
6-MELFORT MUSTANGS (7) 26-16-6-3
A nice rebound by picking up five of a possible six standings points in their last three games. Their last two games of the season are home and home against Nipawin and they loom large as of today.
7-NIPAWIN HAWKS (3) 28-21-3-1
Heart and soul and top scorer Tremblay has gone down with an injury and his absence has been felt as the Hawks lost a key game in Yorkton and are winless in three overall. The three seed is likely not possible now, but home ice advantage could be if they regroup.
8-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (8) 23-21-7-2
The nightly effort is admirable and they have a dangerous top line and a nothing-to-lose attitude. They won’t be a fun first round playoff opponent.
9-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS (9) 21-24-6-1
Bid for the playoffs is, likely, to fall short.
10-WEYBURN RED WINGS (10) 19-30-1-2
They’ll need to improve their talent for next season, but there is no denying the work ethic.
11-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (12) 17-28-5-2
Winless in six and six games to play for the Hounds, who are mathematically eliminated.
12-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES (11) 15-30-2-4
They’ve dropped four straight and have the fewest points in the league.
