With an eye towards the World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia at the end of the month, and the Top Prospects Game in Halifax on Jan. 16, we run down the top teams in the Canadian League this week.

The Halifax Mooseheads are continuing to dominate the Quebec League, but it appears the London Knights have found a groove – and no one is knocking them out of it.

Initially ranked at No. 3, the Knights quickly fell out of these rankings after winning only eight of their first 15 games. Now that they’ve tied a franchise record winning streak, the Knights are ready to see how far they can take this. The OHL record of 25, held by the 1983-84 Kitchener Rangers, is now in sight. If they keep winning, the potential record-setting night would be Jan. 4 at home to Saginaw. The question is: can they get there while two of their best defenders are away at the WJC?
