Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced the eleventh edition of the BMO CHL Top-10 Rankings for the 2015-16 season.

The Kelowna Rockets top the WHL teams in the Top 10, staying at #4 overall, with the Red Deer Rebels moving up one spot to #7 from last week, and Seattle Thunderbirds dropping three places, to #9.

Victoria Royals have moved into the honorable mentions category for the second week. The Royals are chasing Kelowna in the BC Division, and split their most recent head to head vs the Rockets last weekend.

The Rockets won a rare Wednesday night tilt last night, 4-1 vs the Kootenay Ice. Rourke Chartier, returning from an injury, had a big game his first night back, scoring a hat-trick.

The weekly rankings of the CHL’s Top-10 teams are selected by a panel of National Hockey League scouts.
