By James Murphy/, 01/11/19, 4:30PM EST




National - The Jersey Hitmen (17-4-2-1, 37 pts) are atop the standings as we start the second weekend of play in 2019, but are idle in terms of league play this weekend.


Northeast - There could be a change above the Northeast standings after this weekend if the New Hampshire Junior Monarchs (12-2-0-1, 27 points) have anything to say about it. The second place Monarchs will get their chance to overtake first from the Springfield Pics (14-5-1-1, 30 pts) in a home-and-home set that kicks off in Springfield Friday at The Olympia and concludes Saturday at the Tri-Town Arena in Hooksett on Saturday.


Mid-American - The first place Jersey Shore Whalers (13-2-0-0, 26 pts), will play on the road Saturday against the Connecticut Junior Rangers (6-7-2, 14 pts).


16U: Skipjacks, Dynamo And Aviators Look For More Success




National: It’s still a logjam at the top of the National as we begin the second weekend of 2019! The Skipjacks (16-3-0-0, 34 pts) remain in first place, but the New Jersey Rockets (15-6-1-0, 31 pts) and Jersey Hitmen (13-6-3-2, 31 pts), are both three points back in second place. The Palmyra Black Knights (14-8-1-1, 30 pts) are a point back of those teams in second.


The Skipjacks will host a two-game set at York Arena against the Black Knights and the Islanders Hockey Club (13-4-1, 27 pts) will host a pair against the Rockets at Gallant Arena Friday and then Skate 3 on Saturday.


The Hitmen are idle.
