Boston College Hockey Chosen To Win Hockey East (Again)

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

For the fifth straight season and the 12th time in the last 15 years, the Boston College men's hockey team has been picked to win the Hockey East regular season title by a vote of the Hockey East coaches. The defending National Champions received nine out of a possible 10 first-place votes, because, well, Jerry York can't vote for himself.

The vote went much the same as the preseason Hockey East media poll. UMass-Lowell was chosen to finish second, followed by Boston University, New Hampshire, Maine, Northeastern, Providence, Merrimack, Massachusetts and Vermont. BC, UMass-Lowell, BU and UNH once again place 1-4 while UMass and Vermont finish 9-10. The media is higher on Providence than the coaches, while the coaches have Maine, Northeastern and Merrimack ranked lower in their preseason poll.

1. Boston College (9)
2. UMass-Lowell
3. Boston University
4. New Hampshire (1)
5. Maine
6. Northeastern
7. Providence
8. Merrimack
9. Massachusetts
10. Vermont

The season begins soon! Saturday, October 13 to be exact on the road at Northeastern. After a second straight road game at UMass to open the season, the Eagles return home to Conte Forum to raise the banner against Northeastern on Saturday, October 20.
