Dogs Still Ranked No. 1 In CHL

Despite a rough start to the season, the Saint John Sea Dogs are still ranked No. 1 in the Canadian Hockey League. The latest edition of the BMO CHL MasterCard Top 10 Rankings were released today.

The Sea Dogs dropped their first three games of the season with a depleted roster due to 13 players taking part in National Hockey League rookie or training camps. They quickly rebounded from their rough start as players began to trickle back, rattling off three straight wins to enter play this week with a 3-3 record.

This is the 17th straight week Saint John has been ranked No. 1 in the Top 10

Other Quebec Major Junior Hockey League teams to crack this week’s Top 10 are the Victoriaville Tigres at No. 4, Baie-Comeau Drakkar at No. 6 and the Shawinigan Cataractes at No. 7. The Quebec Remparts were an honourable mention.

The weekly rankings of the CHL’s Top 10 teams are selected by a panel of NHL scouts. 

Here are the BMO CHL MasterCard Top 10 Rankings for week two:
1. Saint John Sea Dogs (3-3-0-0)
2. London Knights (2-0-0-0)
