2010-11 Season Hits Halfway Mark

In News on February 20, 2011 at 12:15 pm

The GWMHL has reached the midway point of its 2010-11 season, and although most of the top teams from last year are still competing for divisional crowns, including league-leading Salem (26-11-3), South Carolina, West Virginia, and Portland, some dark horses have emerged. Among them: the Baltimore Crab, with a strong 23-13-4 record and a real shot at a decent playoff position, and the St. Louis Blues, looking for revenge after last year’s first-round disappointment.

There’s no secret to Salem’s record: offense, offense, offense. They have the top powerplay in the league (28.9%, nearly 6% better than the next-closest team) and are being led by Patrick Marleau, who has already reached the 40-goal plateau.

South Carolina’s Evgeni Nabokov leads all the major goaltending categories as he looks to lead the Fire Ants into the post-season. See some of the key statistical leaders after the jump!
