Final Power Rankings for 2017

September 03, 2017

It was an exciting race to the finish in all age divisions this season. There were some good teams that the ranking committee had their eye but were unable to advance them up the list until they played off in June against the stiffer competition.

The U10 teams had some good battles through out the year; Dragons, RD Snipers, Calgary Rockets, Calgary Thunder and Kodiaks.  When Westerns came at the end of June, the Edmonton Jr. Kodiaks were able to beat off the competition to take the top spot.

It took half the season for the U12 Red Deer Snipers Black to pass the Wetaskiwin Jr. Ice into first spot. When the two teams finally met at Western Nationals the Snipers proved they deserved that ranking with two solid wins against Wetaskiwin.

The U14 group was deep and it seemed for a while that any one of teams could have taken the top spot. There were the Edmonton teams; Bears, Misfits, Mustangs, Hitmen; the Sherwood Park Tropics, Red Deer Tour Snipers and Didsbury Rampage who were all jockeying for position from mid April all the way to the end of June. Ultimately the Tropic Thunder finished in the top spot with some convincing wins at Westerns as well as going 5-0 in the tournament.

The U17 division was just as competitive and exciting as the U14 group. Seven teams from North to South in the province battled for the top spots; three teams from Edmonton, two teams from Red Deer and two teams from Calgary. They swapped and traded positions all year until the best four teams would remain for the Westerns; Team United, Edm. Kodiaks and Red Deer Snipers White and Black. The Westerns provided some great games and for a while it looked like it could be anyone’s tournament, however the Kodiaks eventually edged out the Snipers Black in the Gold final and took home the title as the best team in Western Canada
