FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The monthly Alberta Junior ‘B’ Hockey ‘Road to the Provincials’ was released this week.

The rankings are based on the winning percentages of all 53 teams in Alberta’s five Junior ‘B’ hockey leagues. The Fort St. John Huskies and Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks are the only two B.C.-based teams that compete in Alberta Junior ‘B’, and play in the Northwest Junior Hockey League.

The Huskies are currently in second place in the NWJHL standings with 44 points after last weekends action where they went 1-0-2. Provincially, the Dogs dropped one spot to sixth in the rankings with a winning percentage of .758. The Wainwright Bisons still have a firm hold on the top spot with a winning percentage of .935. Fellow NWJHL rivals the Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks, North Peace Navigators and Grande Prairie JDA Kings are all in the top 20 of the rankings.

“I look at the rankings and only use them to gauge what is out there,” said General Manager Jeremy Clothier. “We haven’t been our best lately but we still have a chance to be #1 in our league so that is the goal at the moment. Finish first and get a bye in the first round of the playoffs.”

The winners of each league will advance to Provincials along with the host Huskies, which takes place from March 29th to April 1st.
