Penn State Hockey Moves Up Four Spots To No. 6 In USCHO Poll

Penn State men’s hockey continued to climb up college hockey’s rankings by checking it at the No. 6 spot in this week’s USCHO poll.

The Nittany Lions moved up four spots following their 4-2 victory over No. 19 Princeton on Friday night. They also received a first-place vote in the poll for the first time since January 23, 2017.

Guy Gadowsky’s program has started the 2018-19 campaign with a perfect 5-0-0 record, and three of those wins have come against ranked opponents. The team received a preseason ranking of No. 16, but has moved up ten spots through the first three weekends of the season.

No. 6 Penn State will be back in action this weekend with a two-game series at Pegula Ice Arena against Arizona State. The puck will drop at 7 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday.

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.
