Another week of hockey is in the books, which means that it’s time for the next round of power rankings for the 2022-2023 NHL season.

This list is a combination of my rankings and rankings done by Jim Lynch, and stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the Eastern Conference still owns the top spot.

Where does each NHL team stand as March enters its final week?

By now, all non-contenders are awaiting the offseason, and the playoff teams have their rosters in place. Some know where they will stand, while others battle for position. Here are the updated NHL power rankings.

32. San Jose Sharks (Previous Rank: 32)

For as bad as things looked for the Sharks in the early stages of the season, they look a lot worse now. San Jose has officially fallen to last place in the NHL standings, and nothing suggests that that’s going to change any time soon.

31. Columbus Blue Jackets (31)

With the Sharks moving to last place in the standings, the Columbus Blue Jackets get to abandon the position that they’ve known for most of the year. Being 31st in the league doesn’t do much for the Jackets, though, so they earn a matching position here.

30. Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks have not been winning many games recently. The depleted Chicago roster is probably the worst in the NHL, and they just barely avoid being at the very bottom of these rankings.

29. Anaheim Ducks (28)

Last week, the Anaheim Ducks went 0-4, continuing what has been an absolutely dreadful season. I hope that the Ducks and their young stars come back next year with some fight, but for now, this is a first-slide type of team in the power rankings.
