The two top teams In the Sherwood and North Divisions will do battle in the Canalta Cup Final as the Yorkton Terriers will take on the Humboldt Broncos and itll be the 9th straight year that eithet the Terriers or Broncos will appear in the SJHL Final. The Terriers have been led by their depth as on any given night a particular line or player could step up in any given game. Both teams also boast excellent goaltenders as 18 year old Dawson McAuley has been everything that the Terriers would have wanted from a number 1 goaltender as he has been outstanding between the pipes especially in the series clincer against the Melville Millionaires. While the Broncos goaltender is no slouch as wel as it is the SJHL's Top Goalie for this year in 20 year old Matt Hrynkiw, so goaltending could go a huge part in which direction this series will go for either.

On the backend, the Terriers boast one of the top D cores in the league, and have been led by 19 year old Brady Norrish who likes to jump up in the play all the time and has 5 goals so far in the playoffs, while brother Chase, and Devon McMullen also like to jump in the offensive rushes while veterans Austin Bourhis and John Niebrandt both have WHL experience with Neibrandt having won WHL Championship with the Kootenay Ice. On the other side, the Humboldt Broncos have been led by Logan Sproule who is one of the highest scorers in the playoffs so far with 11 points.

Up front, the Terriers have been led by an abundance of players as a lot of different players have stepped up in big games. But there has been a couple that have stood out in particular as leading goal scorer Patrick Martens, a 20 year old SJHL Rookie who has 8 goals in the playoffs should return back to the line up for Game 1, and also local product Jeremy Johnson has been absolutely superb in his final season of Junior Hockey.

This should be another classic league final in the SJHL, with two very good hockey teams going at it and also Co Coaches of the Year in Yorkton's Trent Cassan & Humboldt's Dean Brockman manning both benches in what should definitely a long and grueling series with a berth to the inaugural Western Canada Cup in Nanimo, British Columbia on the line. Lets Drop the Puck.
