A couple months into the season, it appears as if the Blue Whales are at the top of the heap in the Squamish Men’s Hockey League.
The team is taking first out of the six squads in the league.
A 7-1 win-to-loss ratio has resulted in the leading win percentage, which is 0.833.
“After two months of play the Blue Whales are out in front with 15 points,” said Gerald Cote, manager of the league, via email.
“The Goonies started slow but have moved up the rankings fast and are at 13 points. These two teams may be the ones to watch this year.”
The Stars are taking third with 10 points.
As for the top scorers, the best three so far are Isshin Chiyasu of the Blue Whales; Terry Clark, also a Blue Whale; and Matej Dubek of the Badgers, who are racking up 33, 32 and 22 points respectively.
“The Blue Whales have some dynamic young players that are top in the league with points,” said Cote.
But good goaltending is just as important.
With that in mind, the best three in the league at the moment are Jason Ronan of the Blue Whales; Lucas Paczek of the Goonies; and Kyle Campbell of the Stars.
The trio have wracked up impressive goals against averages with Ronan leading the way at 3.35.
Paczek trails at second by a hairline at 3.36. Campbell takes third at 3.66.
