Adirondack Posts League’s Best Record in First Quarter

In Uncategorized on December 21, 2021 at 11:41 am

The talk of the GWMHL’s first quarter was Adirondack — after a rough 2020-21 season, the Aces surged to a league-best 16-3-1 start. Trailing just behind in the Sawchuk are two teams who were expected to be there in West Virginia (16-4-0) and Vancouver (15-4-1). Defending champ El Dorado leads the Plante with a strong 13-6-1 record, just ahead of Salem (12-7-1) and Baltimore (11-9-0).

West Virginia’s Leon Draisaitl leads all scorers with 44 points (18 goals and 26 assists) in 20 games, ahead of Ice Harbor’s Jonathan Huberdeau (37 points) and West Virginia linemate Sebastian Aho (36 points). Vancouver’s Connor Brown is the league’s unlikely goal leader at the quarter pole, lighting the lamp 22 times. Veteran Ice Harbor defenseman Kris Letang leads all blueliners in scoring, with 27 points in 20 games, while Parry Sound’s Tim Stützle sits atop this year’s rookie class with 20 points in his first 20 games.

Also of note, West Virginia’s Brian Elliott leads all goalies in wins with 16 despite a terrible .871 save percentage. Watch out for the River Rats when Juuse Saros gets his turn in net.
