WAKEFIELD, Mass. – The Merrimack College men’s hockey team was selected to finish 10th in the Hockey East 2020-21 preseason poll Friday, as announced by the league.


The Warriors also finished 10th during the 2019-20 season after they compiled a 7-14-3 mark in conference play, which was good for 17 points. Vermont was selected to finish 11th in the preseason poll after they finished 2-18-4 in the league in 2019-20, which was nine points worse than the Warriors.


Elsewhere in the poll, Boston College was tabbed to finish first overall and garnered eight first-place votes. Massachusetts was selected second with one first-place vote, Providence was slated third and UMass Lowell was fourth with a first-place vote as well.
