Junior C hockey got off to a slow start for the New Year when several games were postponed across the province due to inclement weather.
The postponements included all games in the Carruthers Division of the Provincial Junior Hockey League so the standings for the division will stay the same until games resume later in the week.
The Alliston Hornets maintain their second place in the division with a 15-7-1 record including one overtime loss.
That gives them 32 points so far for the season.
Alliston forward Cole Turcotte is leading the team in points this season with 35 on his record. That includes 20 goals over 22 games played and 15 assists.
Rookie Duncan Grube is leading the team in goals this year with 22 after 23 games on the ice. Grube also has 12 assists this year.
The Hornets are tied with the first place Stayner Siskins in points, however the Alliston team has play four more games than the Siskins to date.
Stayner has a solid 16-3 record for the season so far and continues to be a dominate team in the division.
Stayner and Alliston will meet this week for an important game on Thursday, January 6. The Schomberg Cougars are in third place in the division with 31 points.
The Cougars are having a good season with a 15-5-1 record so far placing them a single point behind Alliston and Stayner.
In fourth place, the Orillia Terriers are also looking good. They have 29 points and a 14-6 record including one overtime loss.
The top four teams in the division should produce an interesting and exciting playoff situation this year.
In the middle of the pack, the Penetang Kings have 20 points and a 9-2 record including two overtime losses.
The Caledon Golden Hawks are in the number six spot with 13 points. The Midland Flyers are struggling this season.
They have a 4-17 record and are in seventh place. In the basement, the Huntsville Otters have won only two games after 21 times on the ice.
The Division should be back on a regular schedule this week if weather conditions improve.
