How does the ranking system work?  The rankings are based on T1EHL games exclusively, and are computed using the same advanced algorithms that are used in's public site.  One key component is that the customized version provided to the T1EHL includes wins, losses, and the league's unique system of overtime wins/losses .  The rankings will provide insight to the league match-ups, and will set the stage for the seeding in the League Championships, scheduled for February in Blaine, MN.  For those interested in looking at the public site, it is important to note that the algorithms and calculations there include games, tournaments, and teams from all across North America, which can make the public rankings significantly different than the T1EHL exclusive rankings.

The T1EHL rankings will be updated each Wednesday morning and will automatically be posted to the Tier 1 website from now through the end of the season.  The last update will be released on Monday, February 18th, 2013.  Questions or issues with the rankings should be reported through the team's manager, who can communicate the issue to the T1EHL office for review. provides an entire database of youth hockey information to the general public at no cost.  Memberships are available to those who want to support the site and are interested in nearly a dozen premium features.  You can check out these additional options HERE.
