OHL Power Rankings: October 21-November 30, 2012 (THW Combine)
The Hockey Writers (THW) - Combine
by Margann Laurissa:
The second month of the OHL season has come to a close and a lot of teams have found themselves doing better than they were initially while some have struggled. The best teams have still been the best teams, and some of the worst have still been the worst, but there is no denying that there have been several that have found themselves in different positions than they were just a month ago. Certain players have stepped up their games and some have just started to falter. All in all, it was an exciting second month of the campaign and more can be expected as the season progresses, especially now with Christmas coming up soon.
Here are the second monthly power rankings for the OHL here at Combine.
1. London Knights (21-5-0-2)
The London Knights have been the hottest team in the entire OHL as of late. As of December 1, they have been on an unbelievable thirteen-game winning streak, which is incredible considering just how mediocre they were to begin the year. The key reason can be solid goaltending from Kevin Bailie and Jake Patterson, who have just been like brick walls in the crease.
Thanks for sharing. I like the fact that the Colts are at the top of the list, however the comments feel a little superficial to me. Mark Scheifele is a given in Barrie, and Brendan Lemieux shouldn't be the other notable mention for why the Colts are where they are. Also, suggesting the the 67s are turning corner when they have just lost their best player for 10 games is probably a bit off base.
