AOHL Power Rankings
1. Flint Firebirds (LW:4) – Beat Sarnia and Ottawa, who are both off to a solid start, and have the leagues early season scoring leaders in Ryan Moore and Nicholas Caamano.
2. Hamilton Bulldogs (LW: 1) – Allowing seven goals to Owen Sound is a bit concerning, but beating a surprisingly strong Guelph team alleviates the concern.
3. Kitchener Rangers (LW: 7) – The league’s last undefeated team, and the only team to beat Flint, but like last year, wondering where the offence is (scoring nine on Sudbury doesn’t count).
