NCHC Releases Preseason Media Poll

Matt Christians

The NCHC announced their preseason media poll today. For the record, we didn't get a vote in it this year's poll, though will be releasing our own league predictions tomorrow.

Selected media chose Minnesota Duluth as the favorites in the league this year; a solid choice with the Bulldogs only losing three contributors off of last year's team, and returning a number of talented players including top scorers Tony Cameranesi, Dominic Toninato and Alex Iafallo, potential All-American defenseman Andy Welinski, and goalie Kasimir Kaskisuo.

The rest of the poll is as follows(first place votes in parentheses):

1. Minnesota Duluth (17)

2. Denver (7)

3. North Dakota(4)

4. Nebraska Omaha

5. Miami (2)

6. St. Cloud State

7. Western Michigan

8. Colorado College

The league also announced their preseason all-conference team yesterday, which went as follows:

F-Trevor Moore, Denver

F-Danton Heinen, Denver

F-Drake Caggiula, North Dakota

D-Andy Welinski, Minnesota Duluth

D-Matthew Caito, Miami

G-Kasimir Kaskisuo, Minnesota Duluth
