North Dakota picked as favorites in the league

Matt Christians

The NCHC announced their preseason Media Poll results on Thursday morning, and North Dakota is picked as the favorite in the league.

Here are the result and vote totals:

NCHC Preseason Poll
1. North Dakota – 181 points (12 first-place votes)
2. Miami – 167  (9)
3. St. Cloud State – 151 (4)
4. Denver – 117 (0)
5. Minnesota Duluth – 112 (0)
6. Omaha – 73 (0)
7. Western Michigan  - 67 (0)
8. Colorado College – 32 (0)

As a remnder, here was the ballot that I submitted for the poll. The voters at-large seem to have less faith in doubling-down on Miami as preseason favorites after last year's debacle, and also see more of a gap between the top three teams and the next group of teams.
