Polls & Awards

Minnesota is still the top team in the land in this week’s USCHO poll despite losing a game over the weekend to St Cloud.  Boston College is the top Hockey East school at #3, moving up two spots despite splitting with Denver.  The Eagles’ opponent this week, Boston University, moves up to #5 after their split with Providence.  Just behind them is Lowell at #6, moving up from #8 last week after dominating New Hampshire over the weekend.  BU got to move up a spot for their split against Providence, but for some reason Providence fell three spots to #12 after taking one of two from the Terriers.  Vermont slipped to #14 after only managing a single point out in Notre Dame this past weekend.  The Irish are right behind them at 15th.  Out of conference I would say the highlight of this week’s poll is Michigan Tech, which swept in-state giant Michigan this past weekend.  The Huskies rocketed up the poll to ninth and even managed a first place vote.

No Minutemen were honored in this past week’s Hockey East awards.  Black Bear Liam Pecararo was selected as Rookie of the Week after scoring the game winner on Saturday to go with a couple of assists on Friday.

The Collegian has their recap of this past weekend’s losses.

UMass falls to second to last in the SB Nation Hockey East Power Rankings.  Ditto for the WEEI Power Rankings.

Conor Allen has been called up to the NY Rangers where he could potentially be playing on a pairing with Mike Kostka, who was called back up to Broadway last week.  Allen played three game for the blueshirts last season.
