PATS #1 AGAIN
Once again, the Regina Pats hold down the No. 1 ranking in the country. This past weekend, the Pats defeated the Swift Current Broncos before dropping an overtime contest to the Saskatoon Blades. The Pats have been ranked among the CHL’s best for 12 weeks this season
One week after moving into the third slot, the Everett Silvertips slide back to the No. 4 position where they previously resided. After edging the Vancouver Giants in a shootout, the Silvertips fell to the Portland Winterhawks before rebounding with a win over the Spokane Chiefs this week. The Silvertips have been ranked among the CHL’s best for 10 weeks this season.
The Prince George Cougars slip to the No. 8 rung on the CHL ladder this week. After splitting a weekend series with the Seattle Thunderbirds, the Cougars knocked off the visiting Tri-City Americans this week. The Cougars have been ranked among the CHL’s top clubs for 112 weeks this season.
The Medicine Hat Tigers earn an honourable mention to round out WHL representation in the CHL Top 10.
