USA Hockey's NCAA Preseason Poll

USA Hockey released their preseason rankings this morning and listed at the top is the University of Minnesota in a tie with Boston College, although BC took 8 more first-place votes.  Michigan follows snagging 2 of the first-place votes as well.

Minnesota (1), North Dakota (4), Denver (8), Minnesota Duluth (12) and Wisconsin (15) are all in the WCHA, giving the poll a pretty strong WCHA presence.

Next year's NCHC has 5 of it's 8 teams and the Big Ten has 3.

I like where UMD is, but I hope we're able to prove it and move up as time goes on.  Will post the USCHO rankings when they come out as well.
