Pro Hockey Power Ratings

Last updated: Tuesday, June 16, 2015 - 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
0.4 goal for the home team.  These ratings are based on 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!
