The Tri-City Americans make an appearance in the CHL poll for the fifth straight week, but this week, they have tumbled from sixth to ninth after going 1-1 since last week's poll.
At 8-3-1-0, the Americans find themselves ranked below fellow WHL teams Saskatoon (third, 8-2-0-0) and Red Deer (seventh, 8-3-0-0). Portland (8-2-0-1) is listed at the top of the honorable mention list.
The Quebec Remparts (11-0-0-1) remain at the top of the poll, followed by Mississauga St. Michael's Majors, the Saskatoon Blades, Owen Sound Attack, the Drummondville Voltigeurs, the Saginaw Spirit, the Red Deer Rebels, the Moncton Wildcats, the Americans and the Saint John Sea Dogs.
The Remparts have not lost in regulation this season. The only blemish on their record is a 3-2 overtime defeat at the hands of the Val-d'Or Foreurs on Sept. 11.
Quebec has two of the top three scorers in the QJMHL — Jonathan Audy-Marchessault lead the league with 9 goals and 28 points, while Joël Champagne is third with 8 goals and 24 points.
