SCSU Hockey Earns Top Ranking In National Poll
The St. Cloud State University men’s hockey team earned the top spot in the latest national college hockey poll released Monday by USCHO.com. The Huskies received 33 out of a possible 49 first place votes.
Previously top-ranked Minnesota lost in a shootout Friday at Michigan State before narrowly topping the Spartans Saturday by a 3-2 margin. The #2-ranked Gophers are now 12-2-2 on the season.
The Huskies have been ranked second in the last few polls, and moved up in the week’s due to a dominating performance at Duluth this weekend. The Huskies squeaked out a 4-2 win at AMSoil Arena on Friday night before a more convincing 5-1 win on Saturday to improve to 11-1-2 on the year.
SCSU hosts Union December 13-14 at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.
