Penn State Hockey Is Ranked For The Third Time Ever

For the third time in its four years at the NCAA Division I level — and first time this season — No. 20 Penn State men’s hockey is ranked.

With the No. 3 offense in the nation and a nice 69 voter points, men’s hockey (7-2-3) finally earned a coveted spot in the USCHO poll. Michigan (6-2-1) is the only other ranked Big Ten team, appearing at No. 12 in the poll with 468 points.

Although the Nittany Lions have yet to enter Big Ten play, its out of conference play is promising. The offense averages 4.17 points per game and also boasts the third most successful power play in the nation with 15-of-52 goals scored on the extra-man opportunity. Penn State’s four clutch shorthanded goals ranks second in the nation.

After a well deserved break, Penn State takes on Vermont on November 29 in Philadelphia at 1 p.m. The team enters anticipated Big Ten play on December 4 against Michigan State at Pegula.
