Kane Soars, West Virginia Surprises in Q1

In News on November 23, 2016 at 7:59 pm

The first quarter of the GWMHL’s 2016-17 season is in the books, and in 20 games there’s been no shortage of surprises.

Many of the usual suspects are atop the standings — Nashville (16-4-0), Boston (11-5-4), and Salem (13-6-1) — but the Baltimore Crab, defending Gump Cup champs, struggled to an 8-8-4 finish that puts them 5th in a tight Plante Conference race.

Meanwhile, the West Virginia River Rats, who kicked off a sudden and drastic rebuild shortly before this year’s draft, surprised everyone with an 11-5-4 record, good for 3rd in the Sawchuk.

Nashville’s Patrick Kane leads all scorers with 42 points in 20 games (including a league-leading 22 goals). He, along with his linemates Daniel Sedin and Claude Giroux, are 1-2-3 in league scoring.
