The best goes on for the Royals in the AMBHL South as they easily skate past the Xtreme to move 11 points ahead of the 2nd place Bisons at 19-2-3.  The Xtreme continue to sit tied for 2nd in the RAM South at 9-12-4, 10 points back of first place Medicine Hat.  For the Royals, Logan Ferguson continued his hot play as of late with 2 goals, giving him 10 now this season.  Captain - Cameron Anklewich, Tyler Rohl and Nic Wihak all had 1-1-2 in this one.  Zach Sawchenko turned aside 17/18 shots and continues to lead the league in every major goaltending category.  For Airdrie, the lone goal was scored by captain D- Marshall Burr with his 3rd of the season.  

Edmonton SSAC 4 - St. Albert Sabres 4
In a battle of two of the better teams in the AMBHL and also a pair of teams who will be taking part in the John Reid Memorial Tournament just a week from today, they battle to a 4-4 tie.  SSAC remain first in the division and overall in the league with 43 points, 5 up on 3rd place St. Albert at their 38.  For SSAC in this one it was Quinn Greenly scoring a HAT-TRICK, giving him 27 goals now and 48 points.  League scoring leader Giorgio Estephan picked up 1-3-4 and now has a 13 point lead over team-mate Tyler Benson with 31-45-76.  For St. Albert, Myrko Vachon had 1-2-3 and now has 2-5-7 this year.  G - Patrick Dea stopped 36/40 of shots.

Intresting that you say Merkley will be a top 5 pick. He is no where near as good a the two bisons ayear ahead of him that went 14th and 19th again just another example of how weak this draft is

Merkley is better than point and mcmaster. But the 97 group is weak

Merkley is not as good as Point or Mcmaster and is a long way from his brother. He is good but tends to rag the puck and play all over the zone making it tough for others to play with him and develop chemistry. He has skill no doubt, but will have to change his game and become more positionally responsible at the next level. But yes, weak year for 97's in AB.

Why compare Merkley, Point and MacMaster they are all good! They are different ages and its a different year. Point and MacMaster had a stronger team overall and worked well together with Martin. Merkley does not have the same players to play with. Still everyone who plays with him mainly Shymr, and K Olson get points and all three are firmly on the leaderboard. Merkley recently was at MVP at the allstar game against all the best 97's in the province.From what I see Merkley makes everyone who plays with him better. BC is deeper for sure but there are some very good 97s in Alberta. Time will tell who will be the best but I would not underestimate Merkley.
