Pro Hockey Power Ratings

 

Last updated: Friday, June 8, 2018 - final ratings


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
0.3 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!
