MNHockey rankings are calculated using the most accurate, objective formula available for North American youth hockey. The rankings do a great job of answer questions about the relative strength of your opponents. There are imperfections such as incomplete or inaccurate lists of game scores. Because one formula can't perfectly place every team at every level, we do see teams that logic might tell us should be ranked higher or lower. One team's slight misplacement does not, however, mean that a different formula be used to place the other in MNHockey. Please read the MNHockey FAQ for more info about MNHockey and our ranking algorithm.
