I apologize, as we are coming out a day later than expected. Considering I got to watch a top-five team live last night, I thought it was best to wait to release the rankings.
NHL 2022-23 Season Weekly Power Rankings: Tuesday 11/15
32. Anaheim Ducks
The Anaheim Ducks return to the bottom spot in our rankings. Although, maybe the NHL deserves the bottom spot after disallowing an awesome Zegras lacrosse-style goal against the Wild from his last week.
This is the Ducks’ second time as the bottom team in the league and that really just has to do with their three-game losing streak combined with them holding the worst goal differential in the entire NHL.
31. Columbus Blue Jackets
Next up we have Columbus, another team struggling as of late. The team is going to be without Laine for the foreseeable future, and they have just one win in their last seven games. Johnny Gaudreau’s six goals and 12 points have not been enough to lift this team to the next level.
30. St. Louis Blues
Next up we have the St. Louis Blues. While the Blues might be on a three-game win streak, this team has been one of the biggest surprises of the season thus far, and they are going to need to win a lot more games to change minds.
29. Vancouver Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks have lost three straight games against original six teams in Toronto, Montreal, and Boston. While their struggles have been immense as of late, at least they saw some fan favorites get into the Hall of Fame.
