1-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS (7-3) 8th last week
A shaky Showcase is well behind them as the Klippers have won three straight and playing tight, defensive hockey through the opening 10 games. They also completed a shocking sweep, on the road, at the Whitney Forum.
2-NIPAWIN HAWKS (7-2) 1st last week
Hawks lost two of three, including a game to Kindersley. They also split with the North Stars after winning their first six games of the year.
3-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS (5-3-0-1) 3rd last week
The Stars are 5-1-0-1 in their last seven and have gone four straight without a regulation loss. Grzybowski’s goaltending has been top notch.
4-WEYBURN RED WINGS (5-2) 6th last week
Riley Lamb has a save percentage above 95%, which is going to be hard to sustain; but he’s been the MVP of the league so far.
5-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (7-3-1) 2nd last week
They used up all their offense by scoring 7 in an overtime loss to Yorkton and then 0 against Weyburn before defeating struggling Estevan to end the week.
6-MELFORT MUSTANGS (5-3-1) 5th last week
The goals against are too high for the Mustangs to be an elite team, but the good news is that there isn’t a lot of areas that need correction.
7-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (5-4-0-1) 4th last week
A setback to get swept by Kindersley before they embark on, what usually is, a difficult four game road trip to Humboldt, Notre Dame, Weyburn, and Estevan.
8-YORKTON TERRIERS (4-4-1) 10th last week
The Legien-Klatt-Bulych line is as good as any line in the league. On Saturday, the Petruic-Bruchkowski-Brandt trio stepped up.
9-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (3-6) 9th last week
Hounds have won three of four and great production from the defense of Martin, Gould, and Robinson.
10-ESTEVAN BRUINS (4-5) 7th last week
Bruins have dropped three straight and five of seven since beating Melville twice to open the year. The paper evidence says this can’t continue.
11-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (2-6) 11th last week
Ice Wolves earned their second win by outslugging divisional rival Melfort. Kolby Johnson has stepped up with 6-points in his last 4-games.
12-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES (1-7-1-1) 12th last week
Mils are winless in six and have a tough October schedule. The good news is that ice plant issues look to be behind them, but they are only slated for four home dates this month.
