FAIRBANKS, Alaska - In first is the Janesville Jets, who are currently nine and two on the year with 18 points.

Probably their most important player is Kip Hoffmann who is sitting at 10 assists on the year.
The Jets are on the road for their series against the Coulee Region Chill.
In second is your Fairbanks Ice Dogs, who stand at seven-two-and one with 15 points.

In third is the Springfield Jr. Blues, who has a record five-five-and two with 12 points.

An area that the Blues can point out to as a cause for their goal problems, it comes from their 172 penalty minutes on the year. They average nearly 14 and half minutes in the penalty box a night.
Their biggest culprits are Cole Lawrence and Fabio Hollenstein, as they will need to hold back on the penalties with their series with the Topeka RoadRunners.
In fourth is the Minnesota Magicians who sit at four-three-and two with 10 points.
Despite their record, they haven't lost in regulation in their past five games.

In fifth is the Kenai River Brown Bears, whose record stands at four and six with only eight points.
Their rookie Gil Garcia has eight goals this season, while their other rookie Cameron McDonald has nine assists.
They now prepare for the Shreveport Mudbugs.
In last is the Coulee Region Chill, who have had a rough start to their season with a record of one-five-and two with only four points to their name.
The Chill have gone through four goalies now, hopefully Emil Zetterquist is the answer.

Trevor Stewart; Head Coach - Fairbanks Ice Dogs >> "It just seemed like every night there was a different guy stepping up and contributing. It was good to see that we have the depth to be able to do that. Most importantly, we're excited to be home. Our guys did a good job on the road trip. They faced a lot of adversity. And we beat some good teams. But I think you can really see the excitement for the home opener this weekend. It's just a raucous atmosphere. And our players are excited to play in it, whether it's our guys or the opposing team. But the focus this week has been trying to be able to use the crowd to our advantage and not our disadvantage."
