MS Ice Hockey

With one week to go before Western takes a break for reading week, the IMS ice hockey league is wrapping up it's 12-week regular season and starting the hunt for the coveted IMS Hockey League Championship.

This year's league saw an increase in teams to 66 up from 60 in 1999-2000. The increase in registration also brought an increase in the number of quality teams to the league. As we head into the heat of playoffs, here's a look at who is favoured to finish on top.



MEN'S SUPER CONTACT

The Trojans, with a record of 10-1 in the first 11 weeks, and SUMMIT with a final record of 9-1-2 are definitely the front runners for prized Super League championship. Not to be forgotten are the Dirty Birds, Terriers and Westminster Shockers who are near the top of their divisions. Winning the Super League Championship not only carries bragging rights for the year, but earns the team the chance to play the best from Fanshawe College in the annual Fanshawe Challenge at the end of March.



MEN'S COMPETITIVE CONTACT

In the highly competitive Comp division, the title is up for grabs. The Gladiatehers(10-1-1) and Snitch (10-2), who won their respective divisions are definitely the front runners to finish in the finals. However, the free agent team, Premium Draft (9-3), and Blue World Order (8-1-3) can't be left out of the equation.



MEN'S COMPETITIVE NON-CONTACT

The non-contact division is the one division that has no definite front runner for the title. In the first 11 weeks, Green Ivey (11-0), Althouse (10-1), Law (10-1), and the Chiefs (10-1) have all climbed to the top of their respective divisions. Only when the divisions are crossed will we be able to tell who really is the best of the best.



WOMEN'S NON-CONTACT

With one more week left in the regular season, the women's division is by means decided. While the Patriots are undefeated heading into the final week, previous tough matches against the Free Women and the Underachievers leave everything up in the air. This battle should get interesting as the final draws near.
