Power Rankings


Quite the shakeup at the top this week, as Miami and Denver swap places. A pair of midwest teams take the plunge, a couple of CCHA teams are on the rise, and ECAC Hockey is a hot mess.

1. Miami (13-2-5) (10-1-3) Up 1

Miami is unbeaten in their last 12 CCHA games.

2. Denver (11-5-2) (9-3-2) Down 1

From the department of the weird: Denver is tied for 22nd in scoring, and 28th in scoring defense. Yet they’re ranked 2nd.

3. Cornell (7-2-2) (6-2-1) Up 1

Not to jinx the Big Red, but if they win the Florida College Classic they could very easily be the number one team.

4. Yale (7-3-2) (4-1-2) Up 1

5. Colorado College (11-4-3) (8-3-3) Up 2

6. Boston College (10-3-2) (7-3-2) Up 5

The Tigers get the edge over the Beavers Ed. Whoops, Eagles! Thanks Brian here as BC beat Providence and Harvard, while CC put up 8 goals in 2 games against St. Cloud (although one was a tie)

7. Wisconsin (11-5-2) (8-4-2) Up 3

As INCH mentions, the Badger Showdown is going to be tits. They explained it much better though.

8. North Dakota (9-6-3) (6-6-2) Down 5

The Sioux are once again glad to see Wisconsin go, but have to be concerned with the apparent decay of Brad Eidsness.

9. Michigan State (12-6-2) (9-3-2) Up 3

Future Sabre Corey Tropp leads the nation in goals.

10. Qunnipiac (13-3-1) (7-2-0) Down 1

The Bobcats had suffered a power outage as of late, including Friday’s 1-1 tie, but picked it up by putting 5 past AIC on Saturday.

11. UMass-Lowell (10-6-1) (5-4-1) Down 3

Balanced scoring: Lowell’s two leading scorers are tied for the lead with 8 goals apiece.

12. UMass (10-5-0) (6-4-0) Up 1

James Marcou leads the country in ppg.

13. Bemidji State (13-4-1) (8-0-0) Down 7

The Beavers have lost 6 in a row to Minnesota State. Maybe it’s a purple thing. We’ll find out as 2 of their next 4 games are at Niagara.

14. Ferris State (13-3-2) (8-2-2) Up 2

Wow, the Bulldogs are off to their best start in almost 30 years.

15. Minnesota-Duluth (11-6-1) (8-5-1) No Change

Minnes0ta-Duluth is the only team all year to slip 6 past Marc Cheverie.

16. Alaska (9-5-4) (6-5-3) Down 2

After 2 against Nebraska-Omaha, the Nanooks next travel to…well, Omaha, for two games on the 8th and 9th.

Dropped Out: None

Maybe Next Week: Union, Maine

Teams By Conference: WCHA 5, CCHA 4, ECAC 3, Hockey East 3, CHA 1
