A Quiet Week Brings No New Changes in the EHL and the EHLP

BOSTON, MA -- For the first time in the 2020-21 season, this week's Nexlevel Power Rankings bring no new changes out of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) and the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP).

Eastern Hockey League

At the EHL level, the #1 New Jersey 87's picked up a shutout in their only game this past week, improving their record up to 5-0-0 for the year. That victory came against the Philadelphia Little Flyers, a team they face-off with again later this morning at 11:30 am.

Coming in behind the 87's, we start with the #2 Vermont Lumberjacks who were off this past week, but are gearing up for big matchups this week against the #3 New Hampshire Avalanche on Wednesday, and the Walpole Express on Thursday.

Speaking of the #3 Avalanche, New Hampshire won their only game this past week, 4-1 over the Seahawks Hockey Club. Along with the matchup against Vermont on Wednesday, the Avalanche are set to also take on the Railers Jr Hockey Club on Thursday.

At #4, the Boston Jr Rangers have been able to play just a single game so far this year, but this upcoming week includes three games against a trio of New England Conference opponents.

Wrapping things up at #5, Team Maryland hangs onto the final spot, despite losing their first game of the season at the hands of the Little Flyers. The week ahead for Maryland includes a two-game series against the Protec Jr Ducks, the team they are currently tied with for 2nd place in the Mid-Atlantic Conference.

Eastern Hockey League Premier

As for the EHLP, the defending Regular Season Champions, the #1 Boston Jr Rangers, continue to lead the way, with a record of 2-0-0 for the year. Coming up this week however, the Rangers take on the #3 New Hampshire Avalanche twice, and also face-off twice with the Maine Eclipse.

At #2 in the EHLP, the New Jersey 87s come in with a record of 3-1-1 with their only two losses each coming at the hands of the #4 Philadelphia Little Flyers, a team they also beat this past Saturday.

In three matchups so far, the following results have been produced.

  • October 3rd -- Little Flyers over 87's (5-4 OT)
  • October 10th -- 87's over Little Flyers (6-3)
  • October 11th -- Little Flyers over 87's (6-4)

The two rivals don't face-off again this week, but each team will line-up against the New Jersey Renegades.
