POS = Position / PTS = Points / S = Shareholder Leagues (will be ranked 1-6 for allocation of CHL places) / * Weighted Total (explanation follows below)
As per CHL Board Decision on 12 January 2022 the status of the CHL League Ranking at the end of the 2019/20 CHL season will be taken into consideration to allocate places for 2022/23 season. The 2021/22 season will not be accounted for as cancelled games in the Playoffs, several teams missing players because of the Covid-19 protocol and the isolated groups due to the Final Olympic Qualification Tournament in the Group Stage have had quite an impact on the tight situation in the League Ranking.
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, taking the results of the previous four seasons into account. The most recent season’s result will be weighed 100% while the previous seasons are weighted with 75%, 50% and 25% respectively. Points for each season are rounded to the nearest whole number (Example: 50% of 65 points rounded to nearest whole number is 33). The total value over four seasons is a sum of rounded values for each season. For the allocation of CHL places, the Founding Leagues will always be ranked 1-6 according to their performance in the CHL League Ranking as teams from Challenger Leagues can only achieve one CHL place.
