Power Rankings - Nov

by ICE604

Div 1


Knights (KNI)
New spot at the top is the Knights, they may not be super flashy compared to others, but they surely are a “team”. Knights are 5-0-1 in the new division. Riley Sandwith has been an unstoppable force leading the team with 28 points (2.8 PPGA). Patrick Wong (13 PTS) and Greg Waplak (2.58 GAA/ 1 SO) are not revealing any holes on defense as Knights have only allowed 32 goals in a high scoring division. At this rate, the Knights are going to continue their trend and stay at the top for a long time.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 6.5
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +39
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 20% (2nd in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 77% (Last in Division)

Titanium Shafts (TS)
Teams are definitely sweating when they are to facing the mighty Titanium Shaft, who are currently on a 3-game winning streak. Daniel Nielsen had a big jump in points, 11 of his 14 in the past 6 games for the team. Also, another big helper for the team is Robert Chang, 12 points after previous ranking period. Titanium Shaft right now are the only team that was able to defeat the Knights (OT-W).

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 4.8
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +4
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 17% (Tied for last in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 84% (3rd in Division)

The Boats (BTS)
The Boats have been dethroned from the top ranking, but its unlikely going to stop them for regaining that spot and they have been the most explosive team in the league.  Leroy Ho, Adam Schuck, and Jonny Ilin were able to get hat-tricks between the past 6 games for the team. Jason Huber collected massive amount of points along those games as well, 17 points (and a lot of PIMs).

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 8.3
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +49
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 17% (Tied for last in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 86% (2nd in Division)

The Gentlemen (GTM)
On a 3-game losing streak and 5-5 division record is The Gentlemen, but on the plus side, they have a perfect record in penalty killing. In the absence of Hafeez Dossa, Robbie Bowal had stepped up the plate with 7 points during the recent games. Credit also goes to Robin Mahony with 6 points from the stretch. The Gentlemen have plenty time to prove others that they got more to show.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 6.1
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +4
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 21% (1st in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 100% (1st in Division)

Div 2

Masterbladers (MTB)
After hard challenges against division 1 teams, Masterbladers are on a 5-game winning streak and continue to look strong heading into the season. Nick Cecconi had a big night against Spartans, scoring 4 goals (6 PTS) that day. Cole Chmilar and Derek Patrao have been playing well as of late, both leading the team with 14 points.  As of now, it is hard to see any other team being able to topple the Masterbladers from the top of division.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 4.3
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL- -7
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 11% (4th in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 85% (2nd in Division)

Pukkake (PKK)
Currently on a 3-game winning streak is Puckkake, 4-0-1 after the first ranking. There is no specific individual doing everything, as many of the players on the team are taking part of the scoring. Newton Lo making plays for the team with 6 assists as his points (Oct18-Nov23), Ivan Tsang (6PTS) and Nick Reid (7PTS) has also been major contributors. They are definitely continuing to make big splash in the league.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 4.3
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +13
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 31% (1st in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 75% (4th in Division)

Whalers (WHA)
The team is 2-3-1 since last ranking, the Whalers haven’t been able to find consistency as of late. Andrew Hart has been a monster though, scoring 8 goals in the previous 6 games. Brant Hardy is also looking superb as he got 6 points along those games. Whalers is probably one of the best teams in zone entry and possession game down low, so don't take these guys lightly.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 4.0
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +6
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 30% (2nd in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 84% (3rd in Division)

Nighthawks (NHK)
Nighthawks are having a bad stretch as they started losing their scoring touch, being shut out twice and only clutching 2 wins in the past few games. Kenneth Liew and Wes Lam leading the team with 9 points. Ryan Cowie and James Li are both needed as they obtained 3 points (2.0 PPGA+) from the length of games after previous ranking. Nighthawks will be looking for Tim Shew to find his fire if they are looking to be effective this season.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 3.6
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - -9
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 22% (3rd in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 90% (1st in Division)

Underwear Bears (UWB)
Underwear Bears is having a rough time as they are 1-5 in the division, only able to grab couple wins against teams out of their division.  Gregory Ma is a must watch player, scoring highlight-reel goals and collecting 8 points during the last six Underwear Bear games. Jessica Kwan has been helping out the boys out with 4 assist (5PTS) in the last six games and don’t forget about Sean Sangara with 9 points. Expectantly the team will get their groove on and jump up in the standings.

Div 3A - New Division Formed. All Green Arrows

Fighting Squirrels (FSQ)
The Fighting Squirrels are rising in the league, going 5-2-1, 2 of the loss were against division 2 teams. They are perfect against division opponents (3-0), one of the factors may be the specialty team(PP 0 ->7% / PK 94%). Leading the team are the big three, Adam Rienzo (12G 7A), Jordan Vendiola (11G 5A) and Brent Petersen (4G 8A). Fighting Squirrels are a team to be reckoned with.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 5.1
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +20
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 7% (Last in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 94% (1st in Division)

Direwolves (DW)
Direwolves are a sure firepower team, it is not the best idea to underrate this team as many of their players can score. The team just came off a big OT win against division rival, Adam Potvin (10 PTS after last ranking) with the GWG on the power-play. Andy Siu has been a big contributor on the back end, having 9 points in the last 7 games for the team. Not far from the climb is Oscar Rodriguez, who is easily the teams most fun to watch with 2.3 PPGA, and Kevin Tieu (7 PTS in 8 games played). A spot at the top division ranking for this team will not be a surprise.

GOALS FOR AVERAGE - 5.4
GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - +21
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 30% (1st in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 82% (2nd in Division)

Eatery All-Stars (EAS)
Bottom of the division ranking is not something to be embarrassed about for Eatery All-Stars as they have been playing well, just unable to grab wins in the division. Eatery All-Stars are 3-5 since last ranking and the Ko’s are on fire. Ed Ko with 11 points in the last 7 games and Leonard Ko has 16 points in the last 7. Dennis Woloshuk Jr had 4 goals during the game against Spartans, more is needed from him if Eatery All-Stars desires more wins.

PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 74% (Last in Division)

Div 3B

As usual, Richard Selman and Farooq Mian are leading the team in points, the next closest scorers are Kevin Yeung (7 points) and Johnny Wu (6 points).

GOAL DIFFERENTIAL - -14
POWER PLAY PERCENT - 39% (1st in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 82% (1st in Division)

Titans (TTN)Titans have not been winning games this month, reason is they have been tested this month with tougher opponents (Division 2). Their big win this month was against Jabba Da Puck with Dang Mai landing 3 goals and 1 assist that game; Chris Chan was the majority scorer against division 2 teams. Maybe division 3 is the perfect home for Team Titans.

Rice on Ice (ROI)

POWER PLAY PERCENT - 15% (4th in Division)
PENALTY KILL PERCENT - 67% (5th in Division)

Vancouver Grizzlies (VG)
Not much change in standings for Grizzlies as they are 3-3-1 so far since Mid-October. It may not be the case soon as Jean-Christian Delannoy came in with a hat-trick against Rice on Ice, 9 goals within 7 games played so far. Tyler Kristensen has been on rapid paste these past 7 games with 14 points and the team has improved on the penalty kill (50% --> 76%). 76% PK is a decent stat, considering they the highest PIMs in the league with 2 players in the Top Goon category Matthew Beavis & Jay Leung.
