BOSTON, Mass. -
The Providence College women’s hockey team was selected to finish fourth in the Hockey East Preseason Poll, as announced by the league on Tuesday (Sept. 26).
The Friars, who received 41 points, were picked to finish behind Boston College (63), Northeastern (56) and Boston University (51). The Eagles, who went 17-4-3 en route to the regular season title last year, received seven first place votes. The Huskies were the only other team to garner first place votes, with two.
