If the early season has told us anything in Connecticut Division 2 hockey, it is that it looks to be one crazy season. Teams are taking turns knocking each other off.

Watertown/Pomperaug (3-1-2) is the new #1 in this week’s HNIB News Connecticut D2 Top 10. The Indians already own wins over preseason #1 Guilford and Cheshire, handing the Rams their first loss of the year this past Saturday. W/P gets a surging East Haven Co-op squad on Wednesday and hosts St. Joseph Saturday.

#2 Guilford (4-2-0) had an impressive 7-1 win over Maine’s Yarmouth HS Saturday, but did fall to D2 Daniel Hand. These Indians have played some wild games already this winter, taking 8-7, 9-8 and 9-6 wins. They get St. Joseph Wednesday and West Haven Saturday.

South Windsor (4-2-0) makes a big jump to #3, its only two losses coming to D1 opponents Simsbury and Northwest Catholic. The Bobcats take on Conard Wednesday and Glastonbury Saturday.

#4 Cheshire (4-1-0) started off with wins over Sheehan, Conard, Lyman Hall and Glastonsbury before coming up short Saturday against Watertown/Pomperaug. Branford is on the docket Thursday, and the Rams take on East Haven on Saturday.

Speaking of the East Haven Co-op, they have started an impressive 5-1-0. The Yellow Jackets have won four straight heading into a big week.

Other newcomers to this week’s rankings include Amity, the only unbeaten left in D2, at #8, and Glastonbury at #10.
