The lead didn't change on Friday night, it remains at 8 points heading into Saturday's action. There was some more movement below the top two teams in the pool, as Benson made his move into third place, thanks to the tie-breaker of goals and Peter managed to tie John in the standings, falling behind due to those same tie-breakers. This is where we stand heading into action today.

Saturday's action is actually quite short, only eight games going on, but that won't stop the tight action at the top of the Draft.

The top six Draft team with the most players going on Saturday is Clayton, our leader, who has ten of his active fourteen players in action, including both goalies, Steve Mason and Brian Elliot. It doesn't necessarily bode well for the rest of the teams in the top six, who don't have more than six players active on Saturday. Unfortunately for Peter, he's only got three players going on Saturday, which will likely keep him out of fifth tomorrow.
