The Union College men’s ice hockey team moved up two spots in both the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine and USCHO.com polls released this afternoon. Union was No. 7 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll and No. 8 in the USCHO.com Poll. Union received a first place vote in each poll for the first time in program history.

Union received 606 points and one of 50 first place votes in the USCHO.com poll and earned 276 points and one of 33 first place votes in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.

Union has appeared in the USCHO.com poll for 66 consecutive weeks since the Dec. 7, 2009 rankings, extending a school record. Union has been ranked in the Top 10 of the USCHO.com poll for 10 consecutive weeks since the Feb. 13, 2012 edition of the poll last season. The Dutchmen have been in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll for 16 consecutive weeks, and in the top 10 of the poll for 11 straight weeks, dating back to last season.

Last weekend, the Dutchmen earned a road series sweep at Bowling Green, defeating the Falcons 5-3 on Friday night and 4-1 in the series finale on Saturday. Junior defenseman Mat Bodie had a goal and three assists on the weekend, including a goal and two assists on Friday night to lead Union back from an early 2-0 deficit. On Saturday night, sophomore defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere recorded his first two-goal game, adding an assist for a three-point night.

After an off weekend, No. 7/8 Union will be back in action on Oct. 26 when they take on American International College in a road contest beginning at 7:05 p.m.
