NCHC Power Rankings Poll (12/8/2016)

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

This week, nothing changes in the first two spots. First, the University of Minnesota-Duluth remains in the top spot of the New Media NCHC Power Rankings Poll. Also, the Denver Pioneers remain in the second place. The University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks climb to the third spot.

Interesting sidebar: this week, the top two teams in the NCHC will faceoff in an important two-game, conference series in Denver, CO. A sweep either way would be huge. The rest of the league is in catchup mode.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email (thegoon48@gra.midco.net). I am still looking for a Western Michigan writers/bloggers.

Here’s the list of voters from the new media that participate in the weekly power rankings: @miamihockeyblog; @stoneysioux; @matthewsemisch; @UofHockeyBlog; @goon48; @Mavpuck; @MoarClappers; @TimTimt89; @DBergerHockey; @JDeMolee; @Paisleyhockey;   @BruceCiskie; @matthewsemisch; @nickbracken303; @candacehorgan; @hockeybias; @StevenDiOssi; @MagnessMayhem
