Men's Hockey Moves Up In USCHO.com Poll
Posted: Monday, November 17, 2008
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - The UW-Eau Claire men's hockey team moved up to No. 9 in the latest USCHO.com top 15 poll, announced today.
Last week Eau Claire was ranked 12th, receiving recognition in the poll for the first time since 2004.
The Blugolds are coming off their conference opening weekend, defeating Lake Forest College 4-3 but coming up short 4-3 against No. 1 ranked, defending national champion St. Norbert College. In the game against St. Norbert, the Blugolds hung with the Green Knights the entire evening and were the only team to outshoot St. Norbert this season. Eau Claire is now 6-1-0 on the season and 1-1-0 in the NCHA.
The Blugolds will be back in conference action this weekend when they host UW-River Falls Friday and then travel to Menomonie for a game against UW-Stout Saturday.
