Elite 15 Division Update – Week 11

Over the last two weeks CSSHL E15 teams have played between 4 and 6 games, with everyone playing four times at a tournament at Planet Ice in Delta, November 16-18.

The top three teams remained unchanged over the period, but Burnaby Winter Club have put some distance between themselves and the other leaders.

BWC went 6-0-0 over the period, including a pivotal 4-0 weekend at Planet Ice in Delta from Nov. 16-18 where BWC took down top teams – OHA Edmonton, Northern Alberta, Edge, and Rink.

After a pair of 4-2 wins against Yale and West Van this past weekend, BWC now has a 19-1-1 record this season, and an eight point lead on second place Delta. More impressively perhaps, the club has a +69 GF-GA differential.

A number of BWC players are finding the back of the net with regularity. Eight players are scoring at a point-per-game rate or higher, with Matthew Seminoff leading the team, and the division, with 38 points in 21 games.

Goalie Mason Dunsford has seen a ton of action, and is posting a stellar 14-1-1 record with a .922 SV% and 2.24 GAA.

 

Delta saw their record take a hit after going 1-3 in the games at Planet Ice, though they did win their last two games against Okanagan, making them 3-3 since our last update two weeks ago.

They still sit in 2nd place in the division with a 15-4-1 record, but are now eight points back of BWC.

Ethan Urquhart (6G-14A-20P), Tyler Hanson (10G-9A-19P), and Quinn Messer (12G-6A-18P) round out their top three scorers. Keegan Maddocks has been huge between the pipes with a 9-1-0 record, .927 SV%, 2.10 GAA and two shutouts.

 

Northern Alberta remain third in the division with a 14-4-1 record, though now only sit two points behind Delta and hold a game in hand. They went 3-1 at Planet Ice, losing to Burnaby but picking up three wins, including a key 5-3 win against Delta.

A bye last weekend allowed a few teams to creep up, although NAX still has a three point lead for third place.

Myles Hilman (13G-16A-29P), Sam Popowich (8G-21A-29P), and Jack Parker (9G-18A-27P) have been doing the heavy lifting offensively as NAX’s top three scorers.

 

Rink picked up points in five of their last six games, going 3-1-2 to move up to fourth in the E-15 division.

They had big 12-0 and 9-0 wins over Pacific Coast and Pursuit to start their weekend at Planet Ice, and picked up another point in an OT loss vs St. George’s.

Rink then picked up three of four points against Prairie to leapfrog them in the standings. They lost 4-3 in a shootout in the first contest, but took a convincing 7-4 win the following night.

Skyler Bruce (16G-18A) leads the team with 34 points.

 

Prairie rounds out the top five, now at 24 points with a 12-7-0 record this season.

They won all four games at Planet Ice, winning a key game against Delta – 3-2 in regulation. They also had wins against Pacific Coast, Pursuit, and St. George’s.

Their only loss came against Rink, splitting their two-game set 1-1 last weekend.

Five of Prairie’s forwards have 20 points or more, with Kirkland Mullen (12G-15A) leading them all with 27 points.

 

OHA Edmonton fell out of the top five after a 1-3 weekend dropped them to 10-6-1. With games in hand they are still in good shape to gain ground on the top five. They currently trail Prairie by three points.

 

Edge moved up a few spots, now 8-7-3, having gone 3-0-1 at Planet Ice. They faced good competition too, with wins against Delta and St. George’s, and taking BWC into a shootout.

Scoring leaders:

 

It’s currently a two-way tie between Yusaku Ando (Pursuit) and Matthew Seminoff (BWC) for the scoring lead among Elite 15’s.

Ando (24G-14A-38P) had five goals and four assists in just four games since last update to close the gap on Seminoff (15G-23A-38P), who also has 38 points but in one more game played.

Skyler Bruce (Rink) is third among scorers, with 34 points in only 19 games.

Two BWC players, Chase Sandhu (7G-24A-31P) and Michael Abgrall (17G-13A-30P) round out the top five.

NAX’s top three scorers (Hilman, Popowich, Parker) represent three of the next four spots along with Prairie’s leading scorer, Kirkland Mullen.

There’s a four-way tie to round out the top ten, with James Gibson (OHA), Kobe Assam (Okanagan), Matthew Carniel (BWC), and Jayden Davis (Edge) all at 25 points.
