Union returned to the USCHO top 20 poll following a one week absence.
After a 5-1 win over St. Lawrence on Friday and a 4-0 blanking of Clarkson on Saturday, the Dutchmen were ranked 20th while receiving 105 poll points. Three other ECAC teams cracked the top 20 as Quinnipiac remained first, Yale was up two spots to 13th, and RPI joined the poll at 15th. Union has been ranked in the USCHO poll in 20 of 22 possible weeks this season.
The Dutchmen remain unranked in the USA Today / USA Hockey Magazine poll, though Union did receive 17 poll points after receiving none a week ago. Around the league, Quinnipiac held onto the top ranking while Yale edged up a spot to 13th. RPI entered the poll at 15th.
Union sits at 17th in the Pairwise.
