2017 is upon us, and it’s becoming more and more clear which teams are running away with their divisions and which ones continue to sputter down and out of contention

Welcome to another week of NHL power rankings here at Blackhawk Up! The competition is beginning to really heat up as the playoff approach ever so fast. It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming in the new season, and now we are turning our calendars and anticipating what is to come.

The Chicago Blackhawks have remained atop the Central Division despite the rough patch we have seen as of late. Lets just hope our ‘Hawks can snap out of this funk, and fast.

Without further ado, lets take a look at our weekly NHL power rankings of all 30 teams with statistics and records as of Wednesday, January 4, 2017.
