Aggregated NHL Computer Rankings

Updated on Friday Dec. 14

Our NHL Power Rankings are calculated by aggregating computer rankings from around the web and determining each team’s average ranking. Our own opinions and biases are checked at the door. We simply work with what other sites have put out.

Power Rankings

Our NHL Power Rankings table is straightforward. Each team’s ranking reflects an averaging of rankings from across the three sites that we pull from. Up or down movement versus the previous week is provided for each team. The HI/LO column shows each team’s best and worst ranking of the day across the three sites we pull from.
