Penn State Hockey Climbs To Program-High No. 10 In USCHO Poll

Following its third consecutive sweep last weekend, Penn State hockey jumped up in the USCHO poll again this week. This time your Nittany Lions are No. 10 with 515 voter points.

Although big time playmaker Andrew Sturtz was out with an injury and leading scorer Denis Smirnov didn’t get on the board Saturday, the Nittany Lions still pulled off a pair of wins against Alaska-Anchorage. David Goodwin also became the first to reach 100 points in program history.

Penn State beat out Big Ten foes like No. 14 Ohio State and No. 16 Michigan.

We’ll just leave this here, too:

Penn State dropped from No. 2 to No. 3 in the PairWise rankings as a result of Denver tying and beating North Dakota over the weekend. Gadowsky’s squad is back in Pegula this weekend for a series against Arizona State, the newest team in NCAA Division I. (It’s not Penn State anymore!)
