The curtain has come down on the 2015-16 college hockey season and North Dakota is your national champion. Unsurprisingly, national runner up Quinnipiac finished #2 in the final poll. Boston College was tabbed as the #3 team in the last USCHO ranking, edging out Denver.
BC finished the season with the 4th-most wins of any team in college hockey (28), surpassed only by Quinnipiac, North Dakota, and St. Cloud State.
This is the second time in three years that BC has finished #3 in the end of season poll, as they did the same in 2014 after a Frozen Four semifinal exit to Union. It's also BC's 6th top-10 finish in 7 seasons, with only the 2014-15 team (#13) finishing outside the top ten. BC has 5 top-5 finishes in that stretch, including, of course, two national titles in 2010 and 2012.
The only school to top BC during this stretch is North Dakota, who has finished in the top 10 in each of the past 7 seasons, though they have fewer top-5s and of course one fewer national title than BC this decade.
While the goal is always to win the whole thing, congratulations to BC hockey on another successful season. On to 2016-17.
