Ranking Updates

2023-24 Week #3 Team Ratings and Rankings Released

Week #3 team ratings and rankings are live! Columbus Day weekend is a big youth hockey tournament weekend. Another 11,500 games were entered into MYHockey this week. A total of 7,555 teams have now reached the 5 game minimum and are being ranked, up 1,553 from last week. The database now contains over 46,500 counting game scores. The full list of newly released ranking categories can be found below.

What does all this new weekly data mean for your team?

USA youth teams in major birth year “All” ranking categories are the most impacted by the new data. A vast majority of teams in the system, outside of a select few teams at the top, moved down ranking spots this week due to the sheer number of new teams that became eligible for the rankings.

We strongly encourage you to compare your team rating from week to week and compare your rating to others in your league. That will paint a much better picture of your team's performance than focusing on what is likely your team's downward movement in the rankings due to external factors.

One thing about big holiday tournament weekends is teams are usually playing new, unfamiliar opponents. While this does great things to improve the overall accuracy of MYHockey when these games are entered correctly, it can lead to errors. We encourage everyone to be on the lookout for erroneous or incorrectly entered games. If you notice an error, please submit a game correction request by clicking on the red check mark in the "Fix" column located just to the right of all game scores. 

We also want to give a quick shout out to our 625+ division volunteers who are doing a great job helping us keep the data accurate and up to date. We greatly appreciate all your hard work! If your team's division does not have a volunteer, we could use your local expertise to help get your teams up to date in MYHockey. You can find a link on your favorite teams division information page or you can click the “Volunteer Sign-Up” link on your account homepage. Thank you for your help keeping MHR as accurate and up to date as possible!
