Great Lakes Junior C Power Rankings: Week 4
The real cream of the crop in the Great Lakes Junior C Hockey League are starting to rise, while some teams struggle to get out of the league basement. Mark Hagerman lays it out in CKSN’s Week 4 Great Lakes Junior C Power Rankings.
#1 Essex 73’s / Last week #2
Phil Janikowski wasted little time showing he is ready to contribute to the 73’s offence while rookie Nick Mainella shows his assets on both sides of the blueline.
Zack Horvath and newcomer Teddy McGeen have re-charged the Blades offence, combine that with a rapidly improving deffence corps backed by Klinton Kenney gets Blenheim back in the Win column.
The Admirals are finding success in a more disciplined system. Bench chemistry is tightening up an already offensively driven team.
The Kings continue to be a soild three period team, taking advantage of the powerplay and shots on net. The consistent net minding by Scott Tricker has inspired a very confident Dresden Kings squad.
The Sharks offence continue to do most everything right. Scott Florence and the Ciacelli’s are regulars on the scoreboard. Tighter deffence and cooler heads will put them on the winning side of the close ones.
#6 Lakeshore Canadiens / Last Week #3
The Lakeshore slide is no indication of the potential of the team. The Canadiens are a quick puck moving team only held back when they stray from their system.
#7 Mooretown Flags / Last week #8
The Flags are a blue collar team to say the least, hard work and determination three periods strong is tough to beat. Players trying to do too much outside of their line assignments can have negative results.
Consistency will be key in the Flyers success. Alvinston has shown that they can compete with most teams in the GLJCH. Staying on the gas pedal for three periods is the the only option in a tight division.
It’s safe to say that the Lakers are searching for their identity. With eight players tied for first at 2 points it’s time for a goal scorer to emerge. It just may be that Wallaceburg will have to look for that help outside of the organization.
