TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – LLOYDMINSTER BOBCATS

The Alberta Midget Hockey League is typically one of Canada’s most competitive circuits. Not this year. The Lloydminster Bobcats were far and away the AMHL’s best in 2015-16, using a season-opening eight-game winning streak, and a 12-1-2 run from late November to early February, to finish 11 points ahead of second-place Sherwood Park. The Bobcats’ 129 goals in 34 games gave them the league’s fourth-ranked offence, but it was on defence Lloydminster excelled, allowing a league-low 62 goals – 18 less than any other team. A well-balanced offence left leading scorer Logan Ganie just 13th in the AMHL, while Austin McGrath (12 wins, 1.81 GAA) and Dane Dow (13 wins, 1.84 GAA) shared the goaltending duties and finished one-two in wins and goals-against average.
