1-MELFORT MUSTANGS (19-6-1)
Nine straight wins and a clamping the lid tight on their defensive play have gone hand in hand.
2-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (19-7-2-1)
Addition of Warkentine, who has 7-goals in 5-games, has given them an added dimension on offense to go with Michael Clarke.
3-NIPAWIN HAWKS (18-8-0-1)
They’ve only scored 73 goals this season (La Ronge has scored 70), but when you have the Hobbs-Pugliese combination in goal, you don’t need much offense.
4-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS (15-8-1-4)
Something to watch going forward is they’ve played 19 games at home and just nine on the road, where they are 4-3-0-and-2.
5-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (15-8-0-2)
They were roughed up this week and sport an abnormally strong road record. They haven’t really used their home ice to their advantage.
6-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS (14-8-2-1)
Ty Enns has provided some much needed offense with 4-points in 2-games since his arrival.
7-YORKTON TERRIERS (14-10-1)
A team to really watch this week as their goals against issues are obvious. If they can fix it without dealing from their core, they could go on a run.
8-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (13-13-2-3)
Jarrett Penner and Sho Takai have taken advantage of their opportunities and their mobile defense is the envy of the league.
9-ESTEVAN BRUINS (13-15-1)
The recent goals against issues are a mystery. The roster doesn’t appear to have many holes on paper but they are struggling to put the defense and offense together on the same night.
10-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES (8-16-2-2)
An easy out? Not so fast. They are 5-1-2-and-1 on home ice. They’ve already played 19 games on the road.
11-WEYBURN RED WINGS (9-14-2-0)
Showing some signs of improved play. They are 1-7-and-1 against the Sherwood Division and 3-2-and-1 against their own division.
12-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (6-22)
Eleven straight losses and their playoff chances are already endangered.
