Staying in Albert for a moment....In the SCAHL, Ryan Barrow who is one of the top ranked 97 born players in Western Canada has 10-11-21 in 8 games for the Bow Valley Timberwolves. It was thought that he would've had a great chance to crack the Airdrie Xtreme AAA but was cut in the end for some reason. Right now, Barrow is 3rd in league scoring trailing only a pair of Cranbrook players, Tyler Wray and Jason Richter. Wray has 16 goals in 8 games already.
Taking a quick look over at the ERBHL. This is a league basically for players who didn't make the cut for the AMBHL. However, sometimes players slip through the cracks and become very good players from this league. Right now, Josh Hagal from Parkland Selects leads the league with 9-6-15 in 5 games, while Connor Atkinson is close behind with 7-6-13. Atkinson plays with Lloyminster. The defenceman scoring leader is Connor Lukan from Slave Lake with 7-4-11.

The OMAHA features the T1 bantam teams in the Okanagan and area....Kamloops has gotten off to a great start already going 3-0-0, while Kelowna and POE are each 2-1. It looks as though Penticton and Vernon are really going to struggle, both are winless. In a showdown yesterday, Kamloops beat POE 3-1.
Finally, this morning, taking a quick look at the Winnipeg Bantam league. The Winnipeg Sharks are off to a 4-0 start after beating the favorite Winnipeg Hawks 8-7 on the weekend.
