Storm Warning as Season Hits Midway Mark

In Uncategorized on January 9, 2023 at 2:27 pm

As the GWMHL season hits its middle, the Ice Harbor Storm (28-7-5) have taken sole possession of the league’s top spot, but the surging San Jose Hosers (29-10-1) are just two points back. The defending champion Adirondack Aces (26-11-3) have fallen to third place in an ultra-competitive Sawchuk Conference. In fact, the Plante’s top team, El Dorado (24-11-5), would barely be in fifth place if they switched conferences. Behind the Lynx are two surprise stories — the Denver Spurs (22-14-4) and the South Side Renegades (22-16-2).

As the first team to score over 200 goals on the year, San Jose is dominating the offensive categories — Hosers Steven Stamkos, Mitch Marner, and Nazem Kadri are 1-2-3 in the scoring race with 76, 72, and 71 points respectively, and teammate Charlie McAvoy leads all defensemen with 57 points. South Side freshman Trevor Zegras leads the rookie scoring race with 16 goals and 37 points, but Hershey’s Anton Lundell is also putting together a stunning rookie season with 19 goals in just 32 games thus far.

San Jose’s Igor Shesterkin is turning in one of the season’s best goaltending performances — despite facing over 40 shots per game, he’s managed a .920 save percentage, two shutouts, and 28 wins.
