Almost one month has passed since the start of the WSHL season. The race for the league’s top scorer has been a frantic one as players around the league have had big weekend performances. The Mountain Division currently dominates the top of the scoring leaderboard with four players from two different teams. The Ogden Mustangs own three of those top four thanks to an offensive outburst against the Cheyenne Stampede, while Superior continues to get high production from its top player.


Matus Spodniak’s run at Ogden’s all-time scoring record took a giant step forward against Cheyenne. In one weekend series, Spodniak racked up 19 points (eight goals and 11 assists) to propel himself to the top of the WSHL scoring lead with 38 points on the season. Spodniak is joined by teammates Ross Bartlett and Jacob Laurin, who are both tied for third in WSHL scoring with 30 points each. Bartlett notched six goals and seven assists while Laurin recorded five goals and 11 assists in Ogden’s three-game sweep of Cheyenne.


Nikita Sheberov continues to power the Superior RoughRiders to a strong start while also climbing the WSHL scoring ranks. Sheberov registered 10 points (four goals and six assists) over the weekend, giving him 31 points for the season. The Russian forward has recorded at least three points in eight of his team’s first 10 games this season.
