The Atlantic Hockey Federation will be releasing the KRACH rankings. KRACH rankings are a team’s win and loss ratio multiplied by the strength of schedule. Due to the AHF playing an unbalanced schedule and some teams playing a full versus partial season, KRACH will fairly measure each teams rankings.
KRACH rankings will vary in the early part of the season and then normalize as the season progresses and teams play more games. In November, KRACH ratings will help break up each division into multiple subdivisions. Teams will have the ability to move up and down subdivisions until January. The final subdivision will include the teams in competition for a playoff spot.
The AHF will release KRACH on the app weekly on Wednesdays and on the website on Friday. Thus KRACH will be released today, October 19 on our AHF mobile app and this Friday, October 21 on our website.
Be sure to stay tuned for your teams KRACH rankings, as 40% of the teams will make playoffs, and the subdivisions will be finalized in January.
