HEH Journal’s Junior Games of the Week and New England Power Rankings 10/7/2014

Games of the Week:

The scouts will flock to this week’s United States Premier Hockey League’s top game between the Jersey Hitmen and the Islanders Hockey Club on Friday October 10th at the Ice Vault in Wayne, New Jersey. The puck drops at 4:30 pm.  

The Eastern Hockey League’s game that will attract the scouts will see the Walpole Express - the first place club in the Boston Division - face off versus the New York Bobcats - who occupy second place in the Central Division - at 10:00 am on Sunday October 12th at the league’s Columbus Day Showcase at Cyclones Arena in Hudson, New Hampshire.

New England Junior Power Rankings:

  1. Boston Jr. Bruins (6-1-0-0) - Boston is in a three-way tie for third place in the USPHL but trail league leading Jersey Hitmen by only two points with three games in hand.

  1. South Shore Kings (6-2-0-0) -   Dropping their only game of the week to the Islanders Hockey Club resulted in the Kings dropping into the tie for third place in the USPHL.

  1. Islanders Hockey Club (5-3-0-1) - An offensive explosion saw IHC score 13 goals in wins over Portland and South Shore last week. It also propelled the Islanders into sixth place in the USPHL, however, they trail the Kings by one point in the circuit’s standings.

  1. New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs (6-1-0-0) - The top team in the EHL’s North Division, and overall in the league, defeated the Boston Jr. Rangers and the Northern Cyclones last week to extend its win streak to six games.

  1. Walpole Express (4-0-2-0) - The first place club in the Boston Division in the EHL, and tied in points with the Jr. Monarchs in the league’s overall standings, lost their first two games of the season but have won four consecutive tilts since then.

  1. Boston Bandits (4-2-0-0) - A win over the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers gave the Bandits a modest three game win streak. Boston trails Walpole by two points in the EHL’s Boston Division.

  1. Hartford Jr. Wolfpack (3-3-0-0) - A loss to the New York Bobcats and a victory over the Valley Jr. Warriors moved Hartford into fourth place in the EHL’s Central Division.

  1. Connecticut Oilers (3-4-0-0) - Losing their only game last week to Walpole forced the Oilers to fall into fifth place in the Central Division of the EHL.

  1. Northern Cyclones (2-1-1-0) - The week saw the Cyclones register their second win of the season over Vermont accompanied by a loss to New Hampshire. Northern is in second place in the EHL’s North Division. They trail the Jr. Monarchs by seven points.
