For the first time in program history, Penn State men’s hockey earned a USCHO preseason ranking, coming in at No. 10 in the first poll of the season.

The ranking comes on the heels of the team’s most successful season to date; the Nittany Lions won the Big Ten, made a run to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament, and finished the season as the No. 8 team in the nation.
Penn State is the third highest ranked team in the Big Ten, only behind Minnesota (No. 3) and conference newcomer Notre Dame (No. 8). Other conference rivals that are ranked below Penn State are Wisconsin (No. 12) and Ohio State (No. 19).
Guy Gadowsky’s squad will hit the ice for the first time on Sunday, October 1, when they take on the University of Ottawa in an exhibition game at Pegula Ice Arena. Their regular season gets underway five days later, when they travel to upstate New York to take on Clarkson University.
