Weekly Rankings


1. Colorado College (4-0-0) (2-0-0)

May the Schwartz be with you: No, not Jaden. Rylan Schwartz had three goals this weekend to up his team leading total to 6 in the Tigers first 4 games.

2. Michigan (6-1-1) (2-1-1)

Junior forward Lindsay Sparks has 5 goals in Michigan’s first 8 games. He had 4 goals in each of his first two years in Ann Arbor.

3. Boston College (7-1-0) (5-1-0)

Chris Kreider and Johnny Gaudreau get most of the publicity, but it’s Bill Arnold who leads the team in scoring with 12 points. So we know the Flames have at least one prospect.

4. Minnesota (7-1-0) (4-0-0)

The Gophers didn’t get their 7th win last year until November 20th. Sophomore Erik Haula leads the nation in points per game.

5. Merrimack (6-0-0) (4-0-0)

One of two unbeaten and untied teams in the country, the Warriors have gotten it done on special teams, ranking 6th in power play and 9 on the penalty kill.

6 Yale (1-0-1) (0-0-0)

The normally high scoring Bulldogs had just 2 goals in each of their games this weekend, but did have 55 shots in the two games.

7. Denver (3-2-1) (2-1-1)

Freshman defenseman Joey LaLeggia is off to a nice start, with 4 goals in his first 6 collegiate games.

8. Union (3-1-3) (0-0-0)

9 of Union’s next 12 games are away from home, a huge early test for a team looking to get back

to the NCAA tournament.

9. Notre Dame (5-2-0) (3-1-0)

I still think the Irish are the best team in the country, and part of the reason why is Anders Lee: The Sophomore already has 10 goals to lead the country.

Freshman CJ Motte is tied for third nationally with a .948 save percentage.
