NCHC Power Rankings Poll (12/15/2016)

Good Afternoon College Hockey Fans! Welcome to the Inside Hockey’s National Collegiate Hockey Conference Power Rankings Poll.

Note: This will be the last NCHC Power Ranking Poll until after the Christmas Holiday. We will return on January 13, 2017.

This week, nothing changes in the first two spots. In the NCHC series of the week, the University of Minnesota-Duluth traveled to Denver and split their weekend series against the Denver Pioneers (3-4 L, 3-1 W).  The Bulldogs remain in the top spot of the New Media NCHC Power Rankings Poll. The Pioneers remain in the second place. The University of North Dakota again remains in the third spot. Western Michigan is fourth.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email (thegoon48@gra.midco.net). I am still looking for a Western Michigan writers/bloggers. Thanks for reading and I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday’s and finally a happy New Year.
