The jockeying for top spot in the Ontario Hockey League goes, sort of, through the northern outposts.
The Guelph Storm take a one-percentage-point lead in this latest Dynamic Dozen and a five-point lead for top spot in their actual league with them during their annual swing up north. It's not necessarily a make-or-break, but it stands out that the London Knights helped get back into the race after sweeping all three games from a road trip at the end of January, while the Erie Otters had a 1-for-3 roadie last week that could determine the race.
Guelph, the Portland Winterhawks and Kelowna Rockets are separated by two percentage points for the top three spots. No one moved in and no one moved out, but there's a good chance that could change over the next five days.
