With 17 of the 20 Division 2 teams in Connecticut boys hockey already with a loss in the opening two weeks – and many of them taking turns beating each other – finding an easy solution to the latest edition of the Hockey Night in Boston rankings wasn’t … well, easy.

But with two unbeaten teams that have dominated their competition to date, at least the top spots weren’t too difficult. After starting the year at No. 2, Sheehan jumps to the top spot on the heels of three consecutive opening wins.

No. 2 East Haven was unranked to start the season off a winless, albeit brief, 2021 campaign. But the Yellowjackets have swarmed to a 3-0 start and been the talk of Connecticut so far.

Lyman Hall slips from the perch to No. 3, having won twice before suffering its first loss to Branford.

No. 4 North Haven bounced back from its lopsided opening loss to Lyman Hall with a win over New Milford.

Two more newcomers – Farmington Valley and Westhill-Stamford – take the next two spots. The No. 5 Generals lost their opener to D1 Simsbury, but beat Branford and South Windsor. Meanwile, No. 6 W-S has just one game played, a win over Amity.

Trumbull tumbles to No. 7 with a loss to North Branford sandwiched by wins over Watertown-Pomperaug and Guilford. A lot of teams could have been No. 8, but we’ll keep Watertown-Pomperaug in the rankings. The two losses are to Sheehan and Trumbull, with wins over Daniel Hand and Newtown/New Fairfield.
