Penn State Hockey Moves Up Six Spots To No. 10 In USCHO Poll

Penn State men’s hockey jumped up six spots to No. 10 in this week’s USCHO poll.

The Nittany Lions jumped into the top 10 following its opening-weekend sweep of then-No. 17 Clarkson, which fell out of the top 20 entirely. This is Penn State’s first appearance in the top 10 this season after earning a No. 16 ranking in the preseason poll.

Guy Gadowsky’s team is one of six Big Ten programs ranked in the poll and one of four in the top 10. Ohio State and Notre Dame are the top two teams in the country, Minnesota checked in at No. 6 after going 1-0-1 against defending national champion Minnesota-Duluth, and Michigan and Wisconsin were ranked No. 11 and 15, respectively.

No. 10 Penn State (2-0-0, 0-0-0 Big Ten) will take on Niagra in its second series of the season. Puck drop is slated for 7 p.m. Friday and 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Pegula Ice Arena.

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.
