AOHL Power Rankings

AOHL Power Rankings (Jan. 4)


1. Sault Ste. Marie (3) – Winners of five straight, and to think Blake Speers has only dressed in one game with the ‘Hounds this season.
2. London Knights (1) – Most goals for in OHL, one of three teams with >100 goals against.
3. Windsor Spitfires (4) – Kept pace in tough Western Conference during lengthy road trip, will battle with ‘Hounds for top spot in the West Division.
4. Erie Otters (2) –
Have taken a hit with star players at WJC, addition of Foegle makes one of the OHL’s top faceoff teams even better.
5. Peterborough Petes (11) – Won all ten of their December games, additions of Korostelev and Black will help.
6. Owen Sound Attack (7) – Winners of seven straight, have leapfrogged Kitchener in crowded Midwest Division.
7. Oshawa Generals (5) – Have been the East’s best team for most of the season teams are closing the gap, have lost five of their last eight games
8. Kitchener Rangers (6) – Much different team without Jeremy Bracco, will be interesting to see if Rangers buy or sell at deadline.
9. Mississauga Steelheads (16) – 16 of a possible 20 points in their last 10 games, still a threat in the Eastern Conference.
10. Hamilton Bulldogs (10) –
Have won three straight after tough December stretch saw them lose six of seven
11. Sudbury Wolves (14) – 
Somehow still leading a very weak Central Division, Steelheads in the rearview mirror.
12. Sarnia Sting (8) –
Have lost four straight and appear to be focused on future, still some pieces that can be moved before trade deadline
13. Ottawa 67’s (13) –
Front’s and 67’s are neck and neck, Ottawa’s scored 38 more goals so I give them the edge
14. Kingston Frontenacs (12) –
scored a league low 90 goals but have only allowed 106, fewest in the Eastern Conference.
15. Flint Firebirds (15) –
The Fiesty Firebirds are sitting in the final playoff spot in the West, rely heavily on big four (Moore, Henderson, Caamano and Sherwood)
16. North Bay Battalion (9) –
Have dropped seven straight, but are still somehow in the race for the division lead
17. Saginaw Spirit (18) – Have leveled out after a strong stretch in December, rebuilding team has some guys that could bring back a solid return.
18. Guelph Storm (19) Last place in the West, but still much more excitement in Guelph compare to last year, future looks bright with Popovich and Merkley.
Niagara IceDogs (17) – have won just twice in their last dozen games.
20. Barrie Colts (20) Recorded just five points in their last 11 games has them last in the OHL.
