1-YORKTON (19-5-1-3) ... 1st last week
They not only hardly lose, they hardly give up goals
2-HUMBOLDT (18-9-1-2) ... 2nd last week
Love the way Brockman rebuilds. He sees he's ahead of schedule and loads up
3-KINDERSLEY (17-8-1-1) ... 3rd last week
Thiel return after Christmas will make them even better
4-NIPAWIN (14-11-0-2) ... 5th last week
Can the Hawks buck the trend and fight a good defense with a good offense in second half?
5-MELVILLE (17-8-2-2) ... 4th last week
Amazing come from behind win at La Ronge was followed with a pair of losses
6-BATTLEFORDS (16-14-0-2) ... 6th last week
There appears to be a clear cut off from the top six teams and the bottom six teams
7-NOTRE DAME (11-12-1-1) ... 8th last week
Kramer Division is the toughest, no disputing that
8-ESTEVAN (12-12-2-2) ... 7th last week
Back in the win column, can they start another streak?
9-LA RONGE (13-14-1-0) ... 11th last week
Coach Martin has put together a nice roster with acquisitions of Morrison and Clark
10-FLIN FLON (13-15-0-0) ... 10th last week
A weekend split is okay, but a sweep would have instilled more confidence
11-WEYBURN (10-16-1-2) ... 9th last week
Winless in four and the games are about to get tougher for the young Wings
12-MELFORT (10-13-0-4) ... 12th last week
A coaching change and maybe a bit of turning back the clock as Blevins takes over
Colby Daniels, Kindersley (5-5-5-10) ... He's carrying the Klippers and a good bet to be a challenger to Kozun's scoring title run in the second half.
Austin Daae, Estevan (9-9-5-14) ... There is just no stopping him.
Tyson Predinchuk (4-4-1-5), Colin Mospanchuk (4-2-3-5), and Landon Farrell (4-1-4-5), Melville ... Mils top line is delivering but the return of Kilback and Reeve would be a major boost.
Cole Golka, La Ronge (5-5-2-7) ... Playing with more confidence and finding a comfort zone.
Kale Thomson, Yorkton (5-0, 3SO, 0.79, .969) ... Enters the week with three shutouts in a row.
Alexei Thibaudeau, Notre Dame (2-1, 1.75, .949) ... An important cog as the Hounds make up ground in the Kramer Division.
