GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota was ranked No. 1 in the latest USCHO.com Division I Men’s Hockey Poll released today, reclaiming the top spot it had previously held for the last three weeks of October and the first week of November.

UND received 36 of 50 first-place votes. Second-place Quinnipiac garnered the remaining 14 first-place votes.

Additionally, UND gained one spot and was ranked No. 2 in this week’s USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll with 16 first-place votes, edged narrowly by top-ranked Quinnipiac’s 17 first-place votes. Defending national champion Providence fell from No. 1 to No. 3 in both polls this week.

The Fighting Hawks have won eight straight games following last weekend’s non-conference sweep of Alabama Huntsville and will host the U.S. Under-18 Team on Saturday in exhibition action.
