TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – SUDBURY NICKEL CAPITAL WOLVES
After an uncharacteristic seventh-place finish in 2010-11, the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves returned to the top of the Great North Midget League heap this season, finishing tied with the Sault Ste. Marie North Stars at 57 points but claiming top spot by virtue of one more victory (28 to 27), thanks in large part to a 5-1 head-to-head record against the North Stars. While no offensive player stood out – Brandon Jones (12th with 47 points) and Connor Burgess (13th with 45 points) were the only Wolves to crack the top 25 in GNML scoring – Sudbury still finished second in the league in goals scored, and goaltender Andrew Lefebvre’s league-leading 1.99 GAA helped the 2008 national champions to the second-best goals against total.
