The Union men’s ice hockey team moved back into the top 10 in the latest and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Polls released Monday. Union moved up to No. 8 in both polls, the highest ranking the Dutchmen have earned this season. Union returned to the top 10 for the first time since Dec. 19, when the Dutchmen were ranked No. 10 in the nation. Union has appeared in the poll for 57 consecutive weeks since the Dec. 7, 2009 rankings, extending a school record. Union has been ranked in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll in 17 out of a possible 19 weeks this season.

Union earned a 5-1 win at Dartmouth last Friday, as senior forward Kelly Zajac had a goal and an assist and freshman goaltender Colin Stevens stopped 26 shots to lead the Dutchmen. No. 8/8 Union (17-6-7, 11-3-4 ECAC Hockey) improved to 9-1-4 in its last 14 ECAC Hockey contests and holds a one point lead over No. 12/12 Cornell in the league standings with four games to play.

The Dutchmen will host Princeton at Messa Rink on Friday night at 7:00 p.m. in a contest that will be broadcast on Time Warner Cable Sports.
