Canes Domain presents Western Conference Rankings 4.0…


1: Kelowna Rockets


69 pts. Tyson Baillie’s seven point week was good enough for player of the week honors. Rockets have not lost in regulation since October 30thUP 1

2: seattle thunderbirds


64 pts. The Thunderbirds are taking a six-game winning streak into a showdown with Kelowna this Wednesday night. Could this be a Western Conference final preview? UP 1

3: Victoria Royals


56 pts. Two straight losses to Seattle at home had to sting. Both Alex Forsberg (24) and Joe Hicketts (25) are in the top five in the league in assists. DOWN 2

4: Spokane Chiefs


42 pts. Adam Helewka’s return to the lineup has definitely helped the Chiefs. He has nine points over the last four games for Spokane. UP 1

5: Everett Silvertips


39 pts. The Silvertips have lost three games in a row by a one-goal margin.  They already have an astounding nine games that have been decided by one goal. Riley Sutter scoring his first WHL goal in front of his family in Medicine Hat was a feel good story. DOWN 1

6: Kamloops Blazers


36 pts. Three-on-three hockey is apparently not their cup of tea. Only blemishes on their record over their last 10 games have come in extra time? UP 2

T7: Portland Winterhawks


29 pts. Missed a huge opportunity in Kent on Saturday, falling to the first place T-birds. Lost key cog Alex Schoenborn to an upper body injury which hurts. EVEN

T7: Prince George Cougars


29 pts. Only loss over last two weeks was by a whopping eight goals to Kamloops. New acquisition Nick McBride has been stellar since being acquired (except the Kamloops game of course). DOWN 1

9: Tri-City Americans


14 PTS They gave up eight goals over their last two first periods combined. They need better goaltending from Evan Sarthou, whose season GAA is 3.66 and save percentage is 0.881. EVEN

10: Vancouver Giants


7 pts. It’s not even December and they are already eight points out of the last playoff spot. They have only won two of their last 17 games overall and it appears that G.M. Scott Bonner is running out of moves. EVEN
