PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Following a 10-4 win over American International College on Saturday night (Oct. 19), the Providence College men’s hockey team moved up two places to No. 8 in the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls.
The Friars are now 3-0-0 on the season, including a season-opening sweep of then No. 11/11 Minnesota State (Oct. 11 and 12). It is the first time the Friars have opened a season with three consecutive wins since opening the 2003-04 season with a 4-0-0 mark.
In the victory over AIC, junior Ross Mauermann (Janesville, Wis.) scored a goal for the third consecutive game and added a career-high three assists for a career-best four point night. All told, nine Friars scored, including a two-goal showing by junior Shane Luke (Dauphin, Manitoba).
This week’s No. 8 ranking is the highest the Friars have reached in a national poll since also being ranked No. 8 in the Nov. 4, 2002 USA Today/American Hockey Magazine poll.
Last week, at No. 10, the Friars reached 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 close out their five-game, season opening home stand this weekend with a two-game series against No. 3/3 Miami University. It will be the first time the Friars have played an opponent ranked inside the top-10 while also being ranked inside the top-10 since Oct. 12, 2001 when then sixth-ranked Providence dropped a 6-3 decision to then third-ranked Michigan at the Maverick Stampede tournament in Omaha, Neb.
Providence and Miami will play Friday, Oct. 25 at 5:20 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7:05 p.m. Both games will be televised locally on Cox Sports on OSN and streamed online via www.coxsports.online.com.
