The Charlottetown Islanders continue to move up the Canadian Hockey League’s top-10 list.
A 2-1 road trip in Quebec vaulted the Islanders from eighth a week ago to fifth in this week’s rankings. They were ninth two weeks ago.
The Islanders, who lead the Telus Maritimes Division with a 7-1-0-1 record, defeated Gatineau 5-3, lost 9-4 in Val-d’Or and beat Rouyn-Noranda 5-4 in a shootout during the past week.
The Islanders are one of three Quebec Major Junior Hockey League teams to make the CHL list.
The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada (8-0-0-0) continues to hold down the top spot in the rankings while the Rimouski Oceanic (6-3-0-0) are ninth.
The Islanders host the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles (4-3-0-2) Friday at 7 p.m.
