Pro Hockey Power Ratings

 

Last updated: Friday, June 11, 2021 - thru games of June 10 Welcome to my NHL power ratings! I will be updating this page on Mondays and Fridays. To determine the approximate point spread for a game, simply take the difference between the power ratings of the two teams in question and add 0.2 goal for the home team. These ratings are based on a mathematical formula involving several factors, including won-lost record, schedule strength, and margin of victory in games. My rankings do not take empty net goals into account. More recent games are taken with slightly more consideration than games played earlier in the season. Enjoy!
