Welcome the first regular season power rankings of Season 6! And we start with a familiar face at the top of the rankings, as Rochester, who spent much of last season at #1 in the Power Rankings, jumps one spot to take over the top spot in the Power Rankings. Rochester is off to an 11-4 start. Atlanta at 10-4 climbs 2 spot to a franchise best #2 in the rankings. Vancouver is #3, Boston, also claiming their highest spot in the rankings, comes in this week at #4, and Tampa Bay, the preseason #1, falls to #5.

Outside of the top 10, #16 Buffalo (10-5, up 6 spots) and #20 Syracuse (9-5, up 7 spots) are turning heads with their solid play to start the season.

Here's the five best starts, and five worst starts to Season 6:
