WHL People’s Power Rankings – October 31st, 2018

Here you have it. Our bi-weekly votes have been tabulated and the teams have been shuffled around. No surprise in the East as the top team continues to be the top team. Some movement behind them as the Rebels continue their strong start to the season. As we reach the quarter pole of the season, teams are starting to understand who and what they are. Out West the biggest movers are the Kamloops Blazers, the team has been lights out recently and may have figured out how to put the puck in the net.

Eastern Conference

1

0 Prince Albert Raiders

8 straight wins, 15-1-0 overall *mic drop*

2

2 Red Deer Rebels

Only team to beat Prince Albert, powered by Hagel, Alexeyev and Anders

3

-1 Saskatoon Blades

Stopped the bleeding Sunday in Calgary, 2-3-2 since 7-2-0 start

4

-1 Brandon Wheat Kings

Five straight losses sets them back from last rankings

5

2 Edmonton Oil Kings

Streaky as it gets, 5 wins - 8 losses - now 4 wins

6

3 Lethbridge Hurricanes

Regularly involved in high scoring games. Great for fans, hell for coaches

7

-1 Medicine Hat Tigers

Seem to be rounding into form with Nassen and McPherson on D

8

-3 Moose Jaw Warriors

In the 2nd Wild Card playoff spot. Its early but an experienced core may hold onto it.

9

2 Calgary Hitmen

Should be better but seem to be fishing more goals out of their net then they are scoring.

10

-2 Kootenay Ice

Same results as Calgary, scoring is decent but defense and goaltending leave a lot to be desired

11

-1 Regina Pats

Finally won a home game, 6 points clear of the cellar dwellers

12

0 Swift Current Broncos

7 straight losses. Only 1 win in 15 games. The polar opposite of their division rivals.

Western Conference

1

0 Vancouver Giants

Up and down the last few weeks but still the class of the Western Conference

2

4 Everett Silvertips

The best team of the tightest division in the WHL. Finding ways to win on lengthy road trip going 4-2

3

-1 Victoria Royals

Have played the least number of games among all teams, same points percentage as the Giants, 4 less games played.

4

3 Tri-City Americans

Winners of 5 straight, look capable of moving on from players turning pro.

5

1 Spokane Chiefs

Jaret Anderson-Dolan returned to the team, watch for this team to continue moving up

6

3 Kamloops Blazers

Winners of 4 straight, went into Portland and swept weekend. Might have found their offense.

7

-3 Portland Winterhawks

Struggling lately to click. Losing 3 straight might have Johnston looking elsewhere for answers

8

-5 Seattle Thunderbirds

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Just one win in their last five sees three teams pass them in the standings.

9

-1 Prince George Cougars

As close to being in the Western Conference basement as it gets. Not showing much reason to believe they will fight for a playoff spot.

10

0 Kelowna Rockets

Much better recently but not enough to move out of the last spot here. Long road trip looms.
