1-NIPAWIN HAWKS 32-5-2-3 (1)
Two more wins, both shutouts, and they are unbeaten in regulation over their last 23 games.
2-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS 30-6-2-0 (2)
Took a trip south to play Yorkton and Melville and beat both teams easily.
3-MELFORT MUSTANGS 28-8-4-1 (3)
Just a notch below the top two teams, but not far off as it’s hard to expect three teams to win each and every night.
4-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS 23-14-3-2 (7)
Defeated the Mustangs and the Hounds over the weekend. They reinforced their lineup on January 10th and are conceding nothing to the top teams.
5-ESTEVAN BRUINS 25-14-3-1 (6)
A statement weekend with back to back wins over Weyburn to solidify their hold on first place in the Viterra Division.
6-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS 24-14-1-3 (4)
Defeated La Ronge twice to salvage a quick northern four game road trip that saw them lose to Nipawin on the front end and Humboldt at the tail end.
7-WEYBURN RED WINGS 22-15-1-4 (5)
Disappointing weekend with losses to Estevan on Friday and Saturday despite great fan interest in the Highway 39 rivalry this past weekend.
8-FLIN FLON BOMBERS 15-19-3-3 (8)
Suffered a home ice overtime loss to La Ronge on Friday, but are still 6-2-and-2 in their last ten.
9-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS 16-16-3-2 (9)
Back to .500 but their -21 goal differential has to be troubling.
10-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES 13-26-0-2 (10)
In no man’s land in the standings, and losers of five in a row.
11-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES 8-31-0-2 (12)
Defeated Flin Flon on Friday night to bump them up a notch.
12-YORKTON TERRIERS 8-29-2-1 (11)
