Here is this week’s AHL Top 10. The numbers in parentheses are the previous week’s ranking.

1. ROCHESTER (4) The hottest organization in hockey keeps on rolling along in Western New York.

2. WILKES-BARRE/SCRANTON (1) A few demerits are offered for a shabby road loss to a Philadelphia team with an ever-changing roster.

3. IOWA (7) The Stars have slipped past a strong Omaha team.

4. HERSHEY (3) The Bears crushed Syracuse, 5-0, at home and followed it up with a clunker to Philadelphia.

5. OMAHA (2) The Baby Flames have perhaps cooled a bit, but Dustin Boyd is back.

6. PROVIDENCE (NOT RANKED) Nothing new – head coach Scott Gordon is taking another rag-tag bunch and winning. The P-Bruins are red-hot, but visits from Norfolk and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this weekend should serve as a good barometer.

7. PORTLAND (5) The Pirates find themselves battling a tough Providence team.

8. NORFOLK (6) The Ads finished a grueling week by taking a 6-3 beating at Wilkes- Barre/Scranton.

9. CHICAGO (9) Putting up 10 goals against a solid Peoria team will make opponents take notice.

10. WORCESTER (NOT RANKED) The Sharks are vastly improved over last season’s San Jose affiliate, the Cleveland Barons.

Not ranked from last week: GRAND RAPIDS (10)
