Quinnipiac men's and women's ice hockey players on the ice

The 2021-22 ice hockey season has just begun, and the country has already taken notice of the Quinnipiac women’s and men’s ice hockey teams.

Hot off of a 4-0 shutout over LIU, the 4-0-0 Quinnipiac women’s ice hockey team has been voted as the No. 8 team in the country in this week’s USCHO Division I women’s poll. It’s the first time the program has been ranked eighth since the 2017-18 team. The team was also ranked No. 10 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.

The Bobcats will take the ice again this Friday to host Saint Anselm in a two-game non-conference series.

The men’s ice hockey team was also voted No. 9 in this week’s USCHO Division I men’s poll, shortly after a decisive 7-0 exhibition shutout over Maine. The team will begin its season on Friday versus Boston College at the Ice Breaker Tournament in Worcester, Massachusetts. A few games later, the Bobcats will host North Dakota on October 22 for the first home game of the season.
