EDITOR’S NOTE: These power rankings were compiled prior to the five-game Tuesday morning slate in the ECHL.
The ECHL Power Rankings are back after taking a week off due to some unexpected issues.
For the first time in this year’s rankings, we have a consistent team at the top. With a record of 11-1-0-0, the Wichita Thunder remains in the pole position. Thanks to six power-play goals and stellar goaltending in a weekend set against the Kansas City Mavericks, the Thunder are off to their best start in franchise history.
Florida remains close behind in second place and would have likely vaulted Wichita if it weren’t for two losses to Cincinnati last week.
There are three new teams in the top five this week; the Manchester Monarchs, South Carolina Stingrays & Toledo Walleye.
At the bottom, Jacksonville continues their stay in the basement, but have shown some signs of life recently. While enduring a 0-4-1-1 skid, the Indy Fuel are ranked 25th. In front of them, the Norfolk Admirals, which are on a 0-5-2 slide.
At the conclusion of play each weekend, our writing team will rank all 27 ECHL teams, and the average of those rankings makes up the “Composite” ranking. Unlike rankings we have done in the past, you will now get to see how every ECHL writer voted. The rankings will debut every Tuesday at 2:00 pm ET/1:00 pm CT right here on The Sin Bin!
Let’s see how your team ranks:
|South Carolina Stingrays||5||6||2||4||4||8||2||7|
|Greenville Swamp Rabbits||8||7||4||9||10||11||7||11|
