The months of the hockey season continue to fly on by.

Somehow we've already arrived at the end of November and Christmas is just 25 days away.

Although it feels as though we just wrote our last update on CARHA Hockey's 2018-19 hockey pool, here we are wrapping up another month!

November 30th on the standings board shows a dominant force seperating from the rest of the competition, and hockey pool participants better be on standby.

Team "budlight" currently has a 22 point lead on anyone else in the pool, the highest lead we've seen at any point during this National Hockey League (NHL) season. 22 points can be made up quickly, but this team clearly has the players playing at the top of their game right now. Connor McDavid, Nikita Kucherov, Mikko Rantanen, Mitch Marner, and Morgan Rielly continue to take this team towards the first place prize. "budlight" holds 10 players that are at the top of their category. Crazy!

After that, second and third place are both wide open.

"Sin Bin" and "Hopeful" currently sit in a tie for second place, both on 541 points. Four other teams are in striking distance for these spots, all within 10 points or less.

Things can change at the drop of a hat, so keep an eye on these standings and take advantage of your monthly trade, and you could be walking away with one of three sweet prizes.

Good luck, poolies!
