in regular season

 

 

October 9, 2018

Here’s a look at the current standings in the BCHL after fourth weekend of regular season play, along with the Top 20 scoring leaders and goalies.

The Chilliwack Chiefs edged back into first place overall on the weekend, and now lead the Coquitlam Express 18 pts to 16 pts, and have a game in hand.

Another Mainland division team, Prince George Spruce Kings, is just single point back of the Express, with two games in hand.

On the Island, the Victoria Grizzlies are still out in front, winning two their last three to post an 8-5-0-0 record, and 16 points, four points up on the Powell River Kings

But the Kings have two games in hand.

Alberni are four back, with a 4-7-0 record so far.

It’s still a much different story in the Interior, where it’s simply tight-tight-tight, although it’s no longer the case that four teams are tied for first place.

The Merritt Centennials are leading Trail by one point, with 7-5-0, and 14 points, but the Smokies have a game in hand.

The rest of the division’s five teams are within three points of Trail.

Merritt have scored the most goals so far, 45, but have also allowed the most, 45.

The Grizzlies and Coquitlam Express are posting the best GF-GA differential, at +11.
