Top 25 Ball Hockey Teams in North America updated for Jan/Feb 2017


2016 has been an amazing year for the sport of ball hockey. Heck even as I write this the sport is hitting new heights with the orange ball appearing on the NHL Network this week! 

As the year rounds out we have finalized our last Top 25 list for the year. There are a few new faces and some shake ups in teams 6-25. The Top 5 on the other hand remain the same as the October rankings.

The Montreal Red Lite remain seated as the #1 team in North America. Their continued dominance at a National level has them as the team to beat. Hopefully we can see them face off against a few more teams next year..........

Jason Kelly and JJ Deviney of Cool Hockey Events have organized and run another amazing event in Philadelphia this year, with the Men’s A Pool very deep this year with all of the top USA teams ( Boston Saints, Pittsburgh Gods, Leominster Americans, Penn Hills Arsenal, Buffalo Fusion, South Jersey Supreme, Leominster Rams, and Phoenixville Graffix) facing off against some solid Canadian Teams ( Niagara War Pigs, Ottawa GodFathers, Barrie Flyers, Toronto Rage).

The top teams in North America are starting to crowd towards the top of the Top 25 list, and some changes to the rankings are well deserved.  While the Montreal Red Lite will remain in their number one seeded spot due to 11 Canadian Championships, the other teams moving to the top are earning their stripes and could overtake the Red Lite with continued success.  The Niagara War Pigs have won the North American Championships this weekend and are a coin flip with the Niagara Rebels for the 2 and 3 spots in the rankings.  We believe the Boston Saints have earned their move into the number 4 spot.  These 3 teams have pushed the Pittsburgh Gods down to number 5.

Leominster Americans, Penn Hills Arsenal and Ottawa Godfathers were looking pretty solid this weekend once again and the Buffalo Fusion, Barrie Flyers, South Jersey Supreme, Leominster Rams and Graffix all were just a break or a bounce away from being into the finals as well.  The Toronto Rage have moved into the Top 25, and while they dropped into the B Pool for Sunday, they learned the hard lessons on needing a full bench to compete at an event of this stature.  They earned their place on the list with speed and skill that is evident in their roster.

Great weekend for the sport and amazing talent and skill on display.  Time to roll into Summer.
