Huskies Back in National Rankings This Week

HOUGHTON, Mich. – The Michigan Tech hockey team jumped into the national rankings this week after winning the Ice Breaker Tournament over the weekend. The Huskies are No. 13 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll and No. 15 in the USCHO.com Poll.

Tech is 2-1 on the season and won the 2017 Ice Breaker Tournament with a pair of wins over top 20-ranked teams. The Huskies defeated No. 16 Union 6-3 Friday and No. 6 Minnesota Duluth 4-3 Saturday in the championship game.

Mark Auk was named the Tournament MVP after scoring two goals and adding two assists on the weekend. Joel L'Esperance joined him on the All-Tournament Team after scoring a pair of goals Friday. Head Coach Joe Shawhan picked up his first collegiate victory Saturday. Mitch Meek, Raymond Brice, and Justin Misiak all scored their first NCAA goals on the weekend. Patrick Munson had 35 saves Friday and 33 Saturday.

The Huskies begin WCHA play at Lake Superior State this weekend. The Lakers split their home and home series with Northern Michigan over the weekend. LSSU won 5-3 on its home ice Friday and fell 4-1 in Marquette Saturday.

Tech received votes in both preseason polls.

The USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine College Hockey Poll is conducted each week in conjunction with the American Hockey Coaches Association. The poll includes input from coaches and journalists representing each of the NCAA Division I ice hockey conferences, as well as composite votes from officers of the AHCA and USA Hockey.

The USCHO.com Poll consists of 50 voters, including coaches and beat writers and sports professionals from across the country. The poll, published weekly by the Associated Press, is a production of USCHO.com, which provides in-depth coverage of college hockey.
