Polls; Miscellaneous Links

UMass moved up to #14 in the latest USCHO poll.  Lowell rose to #5 while Cornell slid into the third spot.  BU is somehow still ranked at #17 despite their 2-5-0 record.

At the same time the Minutemen jumped to #10 in the USA Today/USA Hockey poll.  North Dakota got a single first place vote in both the major polls.

UMass also checks in at #14 in the INCH Power Rankings.


David Boehm, Mike Lecomte, and Paul Dainton were all named Hockey East Top Performers for last week.  Dainton currently boasts the 8th best save percentage in the country at .934.  Boehm, Lecomte, Will Ortiz, and James Marcou are all named in the Milestones/Who’s Hot section as well.


The UMass game notes are out already for this weekend’s affair with New Hampshire.

The Laconia Citizen says the Wildcats are having trouble putting together three consistent periods.

In honor of his election to the Hockey Hall of Fame the Boston Globe has a lengthy story on Hockey East pioneer and former Providence coach Lou Lamoriello.


The CCHL website is currently featuring a picture of recruit Joel Hanley in action.  Hanley is #4 in the black jersey.

    I know that it’s early, but even so, dont’ we all agree how silly the polls are? You should link to the PWR rankings. Maybe even put the link on the side there —->

    Great article on Lamoriello. Sometimes I’m glad I still subscribe to the Globe.
