2019 Final Summer Season Power Rankings
As the playoffs are about to start, we'll take a look at the final rankings at season conclusion. A little reminder to all players to bring a proof of identity (ex. Driver's License), any individuals failing to do so will be unable to play. Good luck to everyone!
The team ends the season with a 11-1 record, highest goals for (102) and goals differential (54). A huge ovation for Robert Chang, who leads the league with 32 points (16 goals, 16 assists), an all around player who can score or look for teammates. Not far behind is Matt Chang with 25 points (7G, 18A), opponents definitely need to keep an eye on him. Titanium Shafts have been strong from the start of the season to the end, they have the best odds in the league to win a championship.
Finishing up the season with a 6-6 record and highest PIMS (167) in the league is Gamblers. Mike Ward with fantastic numbers at the end with 28 points (16G, 12A) in just 10 games (2.8 PPGA). Gamblers may be the biggest threat in the league.
Popeyes conclude the season with a 4-8 record, it may not look good but the team has eight players with more than 10 points (offensive potential). Chris Chebaya is leading the team with 21 points (10G, 11A) with a 2.6 PPGA. The team will need the entire squad to be able to compete in the playoffs.
Trailer Park Boys
An easy prediction that Team Trailer Park Boys will hold top spot of B2 division with a 11-1 record and the only team in the division to have a positive goal differential. Rudy Van Blankenstein showing great leadership by leading the team to a great season, scoring 21 points (6G, 15A). Trailer Park Boys are strong going into the playoffs, everything just clicks for this team.
5-7 record for Nighthawks but a 4-1 record against division rivals. Nighthawks may not have great numbers on paper, but they sure are a heck of a team. Garett White with slick moves against any opponents he faces, ends the season at top (team) with 17 points. Chase Chau keeping up the pace with captain Tim Shew at 15 points. Nighthawks are looking for a back-to-back championship.
Masterbladers end the season with a 6-6 record, and it ranked first in power-play (35%) advantage. Both Kyle Tunstall (9G,8A) and Cole Chmilar (7G,10A) leading the charge with 17 points. Odds are not against the Masterbladers in winning it all, but will need more players to step up in order to go further.
A 2-3 record in the month of July, Whalers had another close game against top team Trailer Park Boys, but was on the short end of the stick. Player(s) of the month goes to Andrew Hart (11 points in July) and Chris Filipchuk (7 points in July). Whalers is a good balanced team, they know how move and transition, perhaps they need to refine their game a bit heading into the playoffs.
The team with no/least perennial scorers was somehow able to squeeze out 2 wins before season conclusion. One of the teams strength is everyone on the team is able to score, but it is also not a good thing if players are not consistent. Ernest Hon and Percy Tang had a flash of offense against Popeyes, both players grabbing 4 points. Winterwolves are going to need a lot of luck to be successful in the playoffs.
Started out the season strong then slipping at the end is team Spartans, currently on a 5 game losing streak. The team is relying heavily on the top heavy scorers, Brendan Batchelor and Matt Hurst. Brendan is among the top scorers in the league with 28 points (14G,14A) and Matt Hurst with a respectable number of 20 points (10G,10A). Spartans will need to get it together if they want to win it all.
GOALS FOR AVERAGE – 4.3
This may be Shockers year, as they have been at the top C1 division majority of the season, currently with a 8-4 record. The Most Improved Player goes to Jeffrey Chen with his highest spring season total of 24 points (15G,9A). It will be hard for opponents in playoffs getting the puck off the Shockers, as their movement and puck cycle look seamless. To be the strongest team, Shockers may have to improve on their power-play strategy.
A 3-1 record in the month of July, Fighting Squirrels is at a good spot before playoffs. Both Danny Dang and Jordan Lazar had a great game against Astros, with a 1G and 4A perfomance. Individual numbers may not look good for Fighting Squirrels, but team effort is definitely there as almost all players on the team chip in on scoring. Look for Fighting Squirrels to start capitalizing on the power-play during playoffs.
Yung Guns end the month of July with a 4-1 record and it looks like the team is started to figure out how to win. Credit to the team's success are the players with double digit points in the season, Evan Kraemer (22 PTS), Mike Helfrich (14 PTS), and Rob Dawson (15 PTS). Yung Guns hockey experience may be a real threat for others in the playoffs.
|Team Eatery All-Stars defeated one of top division teams this month, but still had a 2-3 record during this ranking. Brent Rarama with his variety of skill set earns him team's top scoring spot with 14 points (9G,5A). Eatery All-Stars perhaps has one of the most balance team line-up in the league, but team will still need to get the gears going to go far into the playoffs.|
GOALS FOR AVERAGE – 4.2
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - - 9
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 11% (2nd in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 95% (2nd in Division)
Astros currently running on a 4 game losing streak, one of the reason is due to low commitment lineup. The Highly Explosive Duos Matteo Soriano and Andrew Jeffrie Lee share top spot with 19 points (12G, 7A). Most teams have yet to see the full potential Team Astros can be, hopefully it will be in the playoffs.
Nighthawks 2 is on a roll in the month of July, coming back and beating out top team Camp Douglas and ending the season with a 4-2 division record. New additions, Matthew Gough and Dan Tsunekawa had made a splash this season with the team, both leading with 11 points. Nighthawks 2 are going to be tough to beat with their all round checking game.
Camp Douglas has not been playing great hockey in the month of July (3 game losing streak), but finish up the season with a 7-4 record. The speedy rocket, Zach Bennett is the teams top point maker with 17 points (11G,6A). Camp Douglas has build a team with many skill sets that will likely take them deep into the playoffs.
Flying Squirrels conclude the season with a 6-5 record, top in the division with penalty-kill numbers and riding a 2 game win streak. A great achievement for Erwin Horvath who has exceeded his career spring season total this year with 15 points (7G,8A). The team's great defensive plays will make a tough a challenge for anyone they face in the future.
Ice Hawks aren't looking good leading up to the playoffs, the team is on a 4 game losing streak and a 4-7 division record conclusion. Even though Taylor Fargey has been absent in the recent games, he still leads the team with 21 points (15G, 6A). Also, Abe Harb's first season in the league is already a good one, finishing up with 18 points (9G, 9A). There are no worries for Ice Hawks as they will surely get the gang back for the first playoff game.
Chicks & Sticks
The Chicks & Sticks finish the season with a 7-4-1 record, and snatching the top spot of division right at the final ranking. Farooq Mian (15G,15A) and Richard Selman (16G,10A) consistent on hitting the 20+ season point plateau. Wynjhon Ramos is keeeping up with the solid goalie numbers with a 2.61 GAA, .90 save percentage, and a shutout. A bit of change up for this team is looking good so far.
4-1 Juiy record and a 7-2 division record, Rockstars claim top spot in the standings but was unable to clinch a win against Chicks and Sticks. Bradley Caldwell had a monster night against CHC jets, scoring 4 goals and leading the team with 14 points (9G, 5A). Notable mentions to Bryan Lensen who had 7 points(5G, 2A) in the month of July. Rockstars is a "under the radar" team where every opponent needs to be vary of.
Vancouver Grizzlies conclude the season with 7-5 record, a little slip from previous ranking may be due to penalty kill troubles. Zachary Freeman looking good as usual, topping the team charts with 20 points (11G, 9A). A huge turn out for Yasmin Sadeghi (3G, 12A) as she nearly doubles her point total compared to last season and scoring her first goal in this league. The team will definitely try to back the intensity they had at the beginning of the season, into the playoffs.
A 3-2 record in the month of July and a 4-7-1 season record, CHC Jets finished at the middle of the division. Huge credit for the teams recent success is Kay Kim, after watching multiple goalie videos, Kay had a back to back shutout streak and now leads the league with 2 shutouts. Steve Blackwell claims top point spot for the team with 13 points (3G, 10A). CHC Jets can be a strong team, but they just need to establish an identity to follow.
Killerbunnies finish the season at the bottom of the standings, a tough pill to swallow for the team who competes every game. Anthony Hicks with a .87 save percentage, an amazing achievement in division E1. Killerbunnies have quite a bit games they couldn't close out this season, as there aren't many difference makers on the team. Hopefully Ray Sum (leading the team with 14 points) can make a change to that in the playoffs.
Likely the most confusing team is Gundam Wings (2-9-1 record) where moments in the season they look like a championship team and other moments they just forget how to play hockey. Aaron "Passionate" Sze cares about his teammates so much that he's willing to do all the work for them on ice, the only player on the team to reach a double digit point total (4G, 7A). Gundam WIngs chance of success in the playoffs is similar to the entire teams point statistics, not very appealing at all.
