College Hockey Update: BC Still Stands At #1

The college hockey season is 6 weeks in and many teams have come out strong. Boston College still holds the #1 national ranking after picking up all 4 possible points last weekend with wins against Maine (4-2 Final) and Umass Amherst (3-2 Final). Merrimack swept what was then #15 ranked Northeastern with 2 convincing wins of 5-2 and 4-2. #11 Boston University and #6 North Dakota split their weekend series with both games resulting in scores of 4-2.  The #9 UNH Wildcats suffered their first loss of the season to Umass Amherst 2-1 in OT on Friday after starting the season 4-0-1. However, UNH was quick to bounce back with a 4-0 win over Maine on Sunday.

Other notable match-ups included Air Force spanking Holy Cross 7-0, Penn State beating Buffalo State 4-2 and improving on the season to 5-2-0 in their first D1 collegiate hockey season, and #12 Michigan and #16 Northern Michigan playing to a 4-4 OT tie which was ultimately settled 1-0 in shootout by Michigan. Below are the currently updated rankings going into week 7 of match-ups:

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
