PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
After opening newly renovated Schneider Arena with a weekend sweep of 11th-ranked Minnesota State, the Providence College men’s hockey team jumped four spots in the national polls to tenth in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls.
The Friars opened the season on Friday, Oct. 11 with a 5-1 win against the Mavericks, led by sophomores John Gilmour (Montreal, Quebec) and Mark Jankowski (Dundas, Ontario). Gilmour had a career-high three points in the win with two goals and an assist, while Jankowski netted a pair of goals.
Then on Saturday, Oct. 12, the Friars posted a 3-0 win. Sophomore goaltender Jon Gillies (South Portland, Maine) made 38 saves in the win, while junior Ross Mauermann (Janesville, Wis.) scored what proved to be the game-winning goal 17 seconds into the second period. All told, Gillies stopped 63 of the 64 shots he faced on the weekend.
Gillies went on to be named the Hockey East Association’s Co-Defensive Player of the Week, while the Friars were named the Hockey East Team of the Week.
The Friars have cracked the top-10 in the national polls for the first time since the first week of February, 2006, when they were ranked ninth in both national polls.
The Friars return to the ice on Saturday, Oct. 19 for a 7:00 p.m. home game against American International. Tickets are still available: order online at friars.com/tickets or by calling ticket office at 401-865-GOPC.
