Terriers Picked to Repeat in Hockey East

BU may have lost some players, but Nick Bonino returns and the Terriers are picked at the top of the Hockey East Coaches Poll.

A depleted Boston University, but the defending Hockey East and National Champion, was voted by the Hockey East Coaches to win the conference again. BU received 84 of the possible 100 points in the survey with six of the 10 first place nods. UMass-Lowell came in second with 79 points and Boston College checked in at third with 76 points. Lowell and BC split the remaining first place votes with two apiece.

Fourth place sees a tie with New Hampshire and Vermont at 59 while last season’s Cinderella story, Northeastern, was sixth place with 57 points. The Huskies came from nowhere to finish second in HEA last season, one point behind BU. UMass garnered 47 points to take seventh place, Maine took eighth with 32 points, and Providence edged out Merrimack 24-23 for the ninth and tenth places in the poll.

The season begins this weekend with exhibition games.
