TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – SPRUCE GROVE SAINTS

The Dave Duchak Trophy collection continues to grow; make it six AJHL regular season championships in eight years for the Spruce Grove Saints, and eight North Division titles in a row. Spruce Grove outlasted the Brooks Bandits by just two points to keep its spot atop the league, helped by nine wins and an overtime loss in its last 10 games. The Saints also started the season strong, running off 10 consecutive victories to open their schedule, and they posted two other eight-game winning streaks. The 263 goals Spruce Grove scored was good for second in the AJHL (although it was well behind the league-leading 306 netted by Brooks), but its defence was the league’s best, allowing just 123 goals. Matthew Murray anchored the Saints’ D between the pipes, finishing with the sixth-lowest goals-against average (2.60), while Ravi Dattani was unbeaten in 15 appearances with a 1.18 GAA and .956 save percentage after being picked up in a midseason trade with Fort McMurray. Up front, Tyler Busch paced the offence with 68 points, good for ninth in the AJHL scoring race.
