It's now February which means the end of the National Hockey League (NHL) season, and the crowning of the CARHA Hockey fantasy hockey pool champion is just a couple of months away!

Team "cBOXX" holds his lead atop the standings, and his lead has now grown to 11 points on second place with 1,044 points.

There's a fresh face in the top three, with team "Winterhawks 3" currently holding down the second spot at 1,033 points.

Team "Steve'n'Lacey" rounds out the top three just one point back of second, with 1,032 points!

That leaves an 11 point gap until we see another team, but with plenty of teams in striking distance!

The top players of the Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Boston Bruins continue to be staples on the top squads, doing some heavy fantasy lifting down the stretch.

Be sure to use your five (5) in-season trades if someone on your team isn't pulling their weight.

A reminder that this year's prizing is a $500 gift certificate to the NHL Shop for first place, a $350 gift certificate to Sport Chek for second place, and $150 to CARHA Hockey's new store for third place!

Keep checking those standings!
