1-NIPAWIN HAWKS 30-5-2-3
They are 19-0-1-and-1 in their last 21-games. The only thing they need to worry about is this: have they peaked too early?
2-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS 28-6-2-0
Stars do own an extra time win over the Hawks in recent days and are an astounding 16-1-and-2 on home ice.
3-MELFORT MUSTANGS 27-7-4-1
It’s hoped the acquisition of Ben Allen at the trade deadline gives them the added offensive dynamic up front.
4-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS 22-12-1-3
Hounds are 17-3-0-and-1 at home, but are not in a position to have home ice advantage in the quarters (they’d play Melfort in 4th vs 5th if playoffs started today).
5-WEYBURN RED WINGS 22-13-1-4
A modest four game unbeaten run as we head into next week, and 6-2-and-2 in their last ten.
6-ESTEVAN BRUINS 23-14-3-1
They lead the league in goals scored and the acquisition of Bo Didur, in goal, as calmed the goals against as well.
7-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS 21-14-3-2
Conceding nothing to the teams above them, the Broncos caught the biggest fish at the trade deadline, Nick Shumlanski, from Flin Flon.
8-FLIN FLON BOMBERS 15-19-2-3
Acted as sellers at the trade deadline, but the record is deceiving. Goalie Brenden Newton is 11-7-2-and-3, which means they have a chance when he’s in there.
9-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS 16-16-3-2
It’s a tough division, but the Klippers have fallen short whenver an opening has presented itself to break away from mediocrity.
10-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES 13-24-0-2
They’ve lost three straight, but there isn’t a lot to play for. Not much hope of moving up or down in the standings.
11-YORKTON TERRIERS 8-27-2-1
The level of pride appears to have gone up, which is a positive for the Terriers, who have put their fans through a lost season from day one.
12-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES 7-29-0-2
They’ve dropped seven in a row and fifteen of sixteen when away from home ice.
