Penn State Hockey Ranked No. 16 In USCHO Preseason Poll

Penn State men’s hockey was ranked at No. 16 in the first USCHO poll of the 2018-19 season.

The Nittany Lions are one of five Big Ten teams to earn a ranking, as Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Michigan check in at No. 2, 3, and 4, respectively. Minnesota is ranked three spots ahead of Penn State despite not qualifying for the NCAA tournament last season.

Penn State earned a ranking in the USCHO’s annual preseason poll for the second consecutive season after being ranked No. 10 ahead of the 2017-18 season. The Nittany Lions qualified for the NCAA tournament with a record of 18-15-5 before being eliminated by Denver in the first round.

Guy Gadowsky’s squad will see game action for the first time this season on October 6 in an exhibition matchup against Brock University at Pegula Ice Arena. The team will open the 2018-19 regular season on October 11 with a home game against No. 17 Clarkson.

About the Author

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard. If you, for some reason, feel compelled to see what Mikey has to say on the internet, follow him on Twitter @Mikey_Mandarino.
