The Hanover Tache Junior Hockey League completed its regular season Monday night at St. Adolphe as the hometown Hawks blanked the Steinbach Huskies 7-0 in what was a precursor to their upcoming quarter-final playoff series.

St. Adolphe finishes third in the overall standings with a record of 16-6-2-1 while the Huskies, who struggled right from the outset, complete their schedule in the cellar with a 1-22-2-0 mark.

Red River Mudbugs and Springfield Xtreme tied for first with 39 points each, although Red River was awarded first on a tie-breaker. Both those teams receive first round byes in the playoffs.

In Monday's final game, Eric Trudeau picked up the shutout for the Hawks as he was tested only 12 times by the Huskies.

Garrett Armistead and Kyle Paradis paced the Hawks each with two goals and an assist. Eric Lebrun picked up two assists on the night as he wrapped up the scoring title with 41 points in 24 games, four points ahead of Brett Johnson of the Lorette Comets, who led the league with 22 goals in 23 games this season. Lebrun was also named the league MVP this year.

The other quarter-final series will pit the fourth place Lorette Comets against the fifth place Mitchell Mohawks. Both those best of five series get underway at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday as St. Adolphe hosts Steinbach, and Lorette hosts Mitchell.
