TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – ST. JOHN’S PRIVATEERS

Last year’s TELUS Cup hosts didn’t have a national championship hangover in 2011-12; in fact, the St. John’s Privateers were even better than last year – they cut their losses from four to two and increased their goals per game from 7.17 to 7.52, while their goals-against average rose only slightly, from 1.50 to 1.85. Despite the high-powered offence the Privateers didn’t have a single player appear in the top five of NLMMHL scoring – Justin Walsh led the way in seventh spot with 47 points, one of eight St. John’s players to average more than a point a game – while Matt Jenkins (1.77) and Coady Edwards (1.93) were the only netminders in the league to appear in at least five games and finish with a GAA below 2.00.
