Calculation of CHL League Ranking:
The league ranking system determines the number of participants per league prior to each CHL season. Teams from each league are awarded points for their performance in any CHL season. With each stage of the competition bonus points are rewarded to the teams as well. The total number of points achieved by all teams from one league is divided by the number of games played by the teams of this respective league. The result thereof will then determine the leagues’ CHL ranking for any particular CHL season. For the 2017-18 season the results of the previous three seasons will be taken into account. The most recent season’s result will be weighed 100% while the previous two seasons are weighed with 66% and 33% respectively.
