CALGARY – The Summerside Western Capitals remain the No. 3-ranked junior A team in Canada.

Summerside Western Capitals

The most recent Canadian Junior Hockey League’s top-20  rankings were released on Tuesday.

The Capitals, who have not played since Feb. 13, lead the overall standings in the 11-team MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) at 37-7-2-0 (won-lost-overtime losses-shootout losses).


Two home games

The Capitals return to action for two important back-to-back home games this weekend.

The arch-rival Woodstock Slammers visit Eastlink Arena on Saturday at 7 p.m., and the Eastlink Division-leading Yarmouth Mariners are in Summerside for a make-up game on Sunday at 2 p.m.

The Caps, who have already clinched first place in the Roger Meek Division, currently hold a five-point lead over the Mariners in the race for home-ice advantage throughout the post-season.

The Mariners (34-8-2-1) also maintained their No. 11 position in this weekend’s rankings. The only other MHL team ranked nationally is the Truro Bearcats (32-9-0-5), who are just two points back of the Mariners.
