Western Pennsylvania High School Hockey Rankings

Last Updated December 20, 2008

Previous Rankings
  Teams listed W-L-T record reflects only games whose score  is listed on the Western Pennsylvania High School Hockey Scores page.   Scores from the PA Hockey site.   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. 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.

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).
