12-6-0-1, Last Poll: 2

Despite dropping two spots in the rankings, the Black Hawks still sit with the third most points in the League and are alone in second place in the Western Conference. Robbie Beydoun has continued to play well in goal. He has a GAA of 1.77, third among all goaltenders, and a .931 SV%, fourth in the League. He is also tied for the League lead with four shutouts. Offensively, Nick Swaney and Shane Bowers continue to lead the way, with 17 and 16 points, respectively. Both players are in the top-20 in the USHL in scoring. Waterloo is 6-4-0-0 on the road this season and will look to continue that trend in December, with seven of the team’s 10 games away from Young Arena, including five straight from Dec. 16-30.

3. Dubuque Fighting Saints

12-6-1-1, Last Poll: 10

The Fighting Saints jumped seven spots in the rankings, the biggest climb of any team. They have won seven of their last nine, picked up at least one point in nine of their last 10 games and sit in a tie for second place in the Eastern Conference. Zach Solow continued his tear into November. The Northeastern commit scored in every game in November, finishing with 13 points (3G, 10A) in those nine games. He currently sits with a 10-game point streak dating back to Oct. 28, with 14 points (3G, 11A) during that stretch. Getting the initial goal of the game has been key for the Fighting Saints, as they are 10-2-1-0 when scoring first.
