  1. Ottawa Canadians (11-0-0) | Last week: 1 | Results: 10-2W vs ALX, 8-0W at CHR | The Canadians scored 18 goals this week, combined with their 2-0 week. In 11 games, Ottawa has scored 71 goals and are still undefeated.


  1. Casselman Vikings (8-3-0) | Last week: 5 | Results: 4-3SOW vs WIN, 11-2W at ARN, 3-0W vs OW | A very impressive week brings them back to #2 after they struggle last week. They almost lost to Winchester but were able to pull off a late comeback and the win. The Vikings then scored 11 against Arnprior and shut-out Ottawa West.


  1. Arnprior Packers (6-2-2) | Last week: 2 | Results: 11-2L vs CAS | Only one game this week but the Packers may have learned a lesson when against Casselman. It wasn’t the best performance but they still are having a great start to the season.


  1. Perth Blue Wings (6-1-1) | Last week: 4 | Results: 2-1OTW vs ATH, 4-3OTL at CPB | Blue Wing’s had their six-game winning streak snapped. They’ve picked up points in 7 of 8 games this season. Expect them to be a top contender this year.


  1. Westport Rideaus (6-2-0) | Last week: 6 | Results: 7-6SOW vs WHT, 5-4W at WHT | They had some high scoring affairs in the home and road series against Whitewater. The Hawks pulled off two one goal victories. They recently acquired Griffin Patterson right before the end of the week from Embrun.


  1. Ottawa West Golden Knights (4-2-1) | Last week: 7 | Results: 3-1W vs EMB, 4-0W at BRO, 3-0L at CAS | This young team played very well this week beating Embrun and Brockville. They couldn’t score against Casselman but played them to a tight loss. The last time they were shutout was on Jan 16th, 2014 against Metcalfe jets.


  1. Char-Lan Rebels (5-3-2) | Last week: 3 | Results: 9-6L at REN, 8-0L vs OJC | Very tough week on the defense and goaltending side for Char-Lan. Not only did they allow 8 goals against Ottawa but allowed nine against Renfrew. Rebels were up by three in the game but couldn’t hang on.


  1. Carleton Place Jr. Canadians (5-5) | Last week: 10 | Results: 4-1W at EMB, 4-3OTW vs PER | Great week overall by this young Carleton Place team. Winning against Embrun and Perth.


  1. Renfrew Timberwolves (6-5) | Last week: 11 | Results: 9-6W vs CHR, 5-1W at ATH | Impressive week on the offensive side led by McIntyre, Marinic and the returning Noonan. After a high scoring affair against Char-Lan they got great goaltending from Lapenskie in the win against Athens.


  1. Alexandria Glens (4-5) | Last week: 9 | Results: 10-2L at OJC, 8-5W at RCH | Two games that were high scoring but only came up with one victory against Richmond on Sunday afternoon. Glens have the most penalty minutes as a team to start the season.


  1. Brockville Tikis (2-3-1) | Last week: 8 | Results: 6-5OTL vs WHT, 4-0L vs BRO | Only one point out of a possible four this week. They played Whitewater tight but gave up some costly goals in the final minutes in regulation. It shows that they are a talented young team.


  1. Whitewater Kings (3-5-2) | Last week: 12 | Results: 6-5OTW at BRO, 7-6SOL at WPR, 5-4L vs WPR | Kings picked a big comeback OT victory against Brockville but were forced to try and comeback against Westport in the two games but didn’t turn out well.


  1. Embrun Panthers (2-7-1) | Last week: 15 | Results: 3-1L at OW, 4-1L vs CPB, 4-1W vs WIN | The Panthers couldn’t seem to score against the Golden Knights and Canadians. They did get a much needed win against Winchester. Their young team has great defence but offense is a problem.


  1. Athens Aeros (3-5-1) | Last week: 14 | Results: 2-1OTL at PER, 5-1L vs REN | After a very good season last year, the Aeros have had some struggles because most of their players moved up to the CCHL Tier 1.


  1. Richmond Royals (2-6) | Last Week: 16 | Results: 6-3W at WIN, 8-5L vs ALX | The Royals have a deep and talented team but haven’t gelled together just yet. Expect them to move up the standings.


  1. Winchester Hawks (2-7-1) | Last week: 13 | Results: 4-3SOL at CAS, 6-3L vs RCH, 4-1L at EMB| They had a 3-0 lead against the Vikings and could not hold on. Once again, goaltending has been strong but their offense is struggling.
