A loss to Regina wasn't enough to stop the Blades climb up the CHL rankings as they moved from 3rd last week to 2nd this week.
Two other WHL teams cracked the top ten with Portland sitting in 7th with a record of 10-2-0-1. The Red Deer Rebels are 9th at 9-5-0-0. The Kootenay Ice are an honourable mention with their record of 9-3-0-1.
The only team ahead of Saskatoon is the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL, led by my idol Patrick Roy, with a very impressive record of 13-1-0-1.
