Rhode Island High School Hockey Rankings

Teams listed W-L-T record reflects only games whose score is listed on the Rhode Island HS Scores page (sorted first by team name and then by date)   The program starts all teams with an equal arbitrary value and then  adjusts them all recursively based on game scores until the lowest cumulative  error between expected goal differentials and actual goal differentials is  reached (convergence).      The Total column is in goal units and the difference in this value between  any two teams is the predicted goal differential for a game played at a  neutral site between those two teams.  It should be noted that due to goal differential limits set in the ranking program these predicted goal differentials are only accurate when comparing teams ranked within three goals of each other. The differential between teams ranked farther apart becomes more and more understated as the chosen teams become farther apart in the rankings. A teams Total value only has meaning  in relation to other teams in the same list (i.e. Totals cannot be compared  from one week to the next or directly to a ratings list for another state). The Last 5 column is a simple average performance of that team in the last five games based on current opponent Total values and goal differential (up to max allowed). Obviously, the fewer games a team's ranking is based upon the less likely that ranking is to be accurate.

All teams that have 3 or more reported scores against teams rated within 4 goals of themselves are listed. The first ranking combines divisions 1, and 2 Large. The second ranking combines 2 Small and 3. If there has been enough interplay between divisions, these overall rankings will be accurate. If not, the ordering will only be accurate within each division.

Notes: * indicates teams with only two games against teams rated within 4 goals of them. - indicates teams with only one game against teams rated within 4 goals of them. Since some "mismatch" games are not used in determining the rankings, the Sched column can be somewhat misleading as it only reflects the average opponent strength of only the opponents ranked within 4 goals of each team. The GAMES Column indicates how many games each team's rating is based upon (i.e. how many of their games were against teams rated within 4 goals of themselves).
