32-17-5-2, Last Poll: 4

 

Dubuque sits alone in third place in the Eastern Conference standings heading into the final two weeks of the regular season. Zach Solow remains the USHL scoring leader with 60 points (15G, 45A) in 52 games, including 10 points (2G, 8A) through his first 10 games in March. Cole Guttman had eight points (4G, 4A) in that span, making him second among rookies and third on the Fighting Saints with 47 points (23G, 24A). Dubuque will lean on their group of veterans such as Solow, Dallas Gerads, Keenan Suthers, Alex Steeves and goaltender Jaxon Castor to guide the Fighting Saints to their seventh straight playoff appearance and potentially a third Clark Cup title (2011, 2013) since returning to the USHL prior to the 2010-11 season.
