The Quinnipiac men’s ice hockey program continues its ascension in the national rankings for a third straight week as the Bobcats cracked the Top 10 of the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Men’s College Hockey Poll as the No. 10 team in the nation.

Quinnipiac remained No. 11 in the USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll for a second consecutive week after reaching the spot last Monday.

The Bobcats received 11 additional points in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll to check in at 180 this week, just one point shy of UMass Lowell for No. 9 in the nation. Quinnipiac also received 355 points in the USCHO Poll this week.

Quinnipiac closed out the 2019-20 season ranked No. 14 in both national rankings after finishing the season with a 21-11-2 record, as well as three wins against nationally ranked opponents in the season.

The Bobcats are set to open up the 2020-21 on Monday, December 14 at 7 p.m., as they host the Sacred Heart Pioneers in the first game of a two-game series at Frank Perrotti Jr. Arena.
