Rankings

International Hockey Lineal Championship games won are ranked by each game win as champion (including overtime / shootout wins). Ties do not account for wins, and the incumbent champion retains the championship from a tie. Teams are ranked by total wins, then by highest winning percentage (number of wins divided by number of games), then by most recent championship. Most recent attempt at the championship is featured below most recent championship, if the date is different.
