The CJHL, in conjunction with NHL Central Scouting, announced this week’s rankings on Monday morning.

The Capitals, who have won 15 games in a row and have not lost since Dec. 7, are starting to run away in the MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) as the regular season winds down. The Caps, who have already clinched home-ice advantage in the opening round of the playoffs and sport a 34-6-2-0 (won-lost-overtime losses-shootout losses) record, good for 70 points and an 11-point lead over the Yarmouth Mariners (29-8-1-0) in the overall standings.

Yarmouth moved up two spots in this week’s rankings from ninth to seventh. The only other MHL team ranked nationally is the Truro Bearcats (26-7-0-4), who moved from 10th spot to eighth.

The Amherst Ramblers, who defeated the Bearcats 4-1 in Truro on Sunday night, received honourable mention.

The Brooks Bandits (43-2-2) of the Alberta Junior Hockey League maintains the No. 1 ranking, and the Minnesota Wilderness (39-3-0-0) of the Canadian-based Superior International Junior Hockey League stays in the second spot.

The Capitals are back in action in Woodstock on Friday night, and return home to host the Dieppe Commandos on Saturday. Game time at Eastlink Arena is 7 p.m.

    Billy, that twice this month you post pure garbage about the Caps. If hockey is not your sport, just leave it be. Go watch something that meets your intelligence, like croquet. Great Job Caps, keep it up and we will attending a Royal Bank Cup victory party mid May.
