Penn State Men’s Hockey Moves To No. 6 In USCHO Poll

Penn State men’s hockey moved back to No. 6 overall in the latest USCHO Poll following a series sweep of Alaska-Fairbanks.

Penn State previously fell to No. 7 last week following an overtime win and a loss against Michigan State two weeks ago. It was the first time the Nittany Lions dropped in the polls, as they have otherwise moved up every week since the beginning of the season.

The blue and white responded by taking game one of its series against Alaska-Fairbanks 3-2, then followed suit with a 2-1 victory on Thanksgiving eve. The sweep marks its fifth of the season.

Minnesota (No. 4), Michigan (No. 5), Michigan State (13), Ohio State (17), and Notre Dame (20), are the other Big Ten teams that are ranked. Penn State currently trails Minnesota and Michigan State in the conference standings, although the Nittany Lions are just two points shy of the top spot.

The Nittany Lions’ next series is at home against Ohio State on Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3. Friday’s puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m., while Saturday’s game is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday’s game is also the annual Teddy Bear Toss.
