QMJHL Hockey Rankings


Below are listed the current QMJHL Hockey ratings as computed by the Donchess Inference Index.
More information on how these QMJHL rankings are computed can be found on the Methodology page. For our projections on games, see QMJHL Hockey Predictions.

DII Rating– This is a rankings system that is a combination of the Standard Rating and the Inference Rating. The Inference Rating is weighted more highly in the beginning of the season whereas the Standard Rating is weighted more highly at the end of the season. This is the final rating that is used to rank the teams.

Standard Rating– Looks at game outcome and score differential only. Record is the most important factor in this rating system.

Inference Rating– Heavily weights the outcomes of opponents’ games. This is system is a much better predictor of future game outcomes.
