UFHL Releases Preseason Power Rankings: Grizzlies Remain On Top

The Ultimate Fantasy Hockey League has released its preseason Power Rankings, with 11 of the 31 franchises contributing to this consensus. The Grizzlies are still the team to beat, according to these Power Rankings — remaining on top at No. 1 after winning the Founders’ Trophy as regular-season champion for the inaugural 2020 campaign, led by Edmonton Oilers linemates Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Connor McDavid’s franchise, the Yetis, wound up No. 2, while the youthful but loaded Red Army franchise rounded out the top three. Here are the UFHL’s overall Power Rankings as well as conference and division rankings, the playoff picture and draft lottery odds, plus franchise breakdowns and my final thoughts.
