An early-season run was enough for the York-Simcoe Express to take its place atop the ETA. The Express dropped just one of its first 15 games, posting a 10-1-4 record through mid-November to open up a comfortable lead on Ajax-Pickering in the West Division, and on Kingston in the overall standings. York-Simcoe had the No. 3 offence in the ETA, led by 34 points (13-21—34) from Blake Frost and 33 (14-19—33) from Braeden McKinnon, but it was No. 1 in the defensive end – goaltender Vincent Paveglio had a league-leading 2.06 GAA to backstop the Express to an ETA-low 82 goals against.
