Men's Ice Hockey climbs into national poll
New England College men’s ice hockey has been ranked the fifteenth team in the nation by the United States College Hockey Online (www.uscho.com). The Pilgrims take over the fifteenth spot after sweeping NESCAC opponents Bowdoin College and Colby College this past weekend. Norwich University is the only other school in the ECAC East nationally ranked as the Cadets currently hold the 14th spot in the poll.
The USCHO Poll is compiled weekly and consists of 20 voters, including 15 coaches of Division III programs and five men's hockey writers.
The Pilgrims return to action on Tuesday, Jan 13 when they host non-conference opponent Plymouth State College at Everett Ice Arena in Concord. NEC will return home this upcoming weekend squaring off against NESCAC opponent Trinity College on Friday evening and Wesleyan University on Saturday afternoon.
