The surging Minnesota Wilderness continues to be one of the top-ranked clubs in the Canadian Junior Hockey League, an amalgamation of 10 Junior A hockey leagues across Canada. 

Rolling along with an impressive 33-3-0-1 record, the Wilderness, who sits atop the Superior International Junior Hockey League standings, was once again slotted in the No. 2 spot in the latest CJHL Top rankings released Monday, Jan. 21.

The listings are tabulated each week by the CJHL in conjunction with NHL Central Scouting.

The Wilderness have not lost a game in regulation since Oct. 24, posting an impressive 21-0-0-1 record in 22 outings during that span.

Back again for another week as the top-ranked team in the CJHL are the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. They possess the best record in both the AJHL and CJHL at 40-2-2.

No change in the No. 3 slot this week either with the Maritime Hockey League's Summerside Western Capitals maintaining their hold on that position.

The 2013 Royal Bank Cup host Capitals are also on a roll having reeled off 12 consecutive victories as they hold down top spot in the MHL at 31-6-2-0.
