Division one is led by the Markham Waxers (10-0-0) who have gone undefeated on the season. Their OMHA division-mates, the Erie North Shore Storm (5-3-2), sit only one spot back of the Waxers. Despite the tough competition coming from the OMHA, both the Leaside Flames (10-3-1) and Don Mills Mustangs (10-4-1) have played a few more games, both winning 10 apiece.

The Riverside Rangers (7-1-2) and the Erindale Spitfires (16-0-1) lead division two into the tournament both sitting at first in their respective divisions. Both the Woodstock Jr. Navy Jets (2-4-2) and the Ted Reeve Thunder (4-14-0) will have their work cut out for them with some tough competition.
