Here is the second edition of CPPR or Canadiens Prospects Power Rankings – Week 2

All power rankings are based on the ranking criteria from the pre-season prospect rankings, which can be found here, plus their current performance on bi-weekly bases.

You will notice a column “PRank” which stands for the previous ranking, there will also be some players with “NR” (Not Ranked) under PRank if they did not play during those weeks due to injury or lack of playing time.

There is also a “Trend” column which indicates their current performances to support their current ranking.

In addition to the rankings, I’ve also included basic player statistics for quick reference but counting stats don’t mean everything.
