Niagara Continues to Earn National Recognition -

NIAGARA UNIV., N.Y. – The nation is continuing to recognize the Niagara hockey team as the country’s major college hockey polls are being released this week. The USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll gave the Purps a spot on the top-15 poll for the third consecutive week, this time at No. 15.

The Division I Poll also has the Purple Eagles ranked 16th in its most recent poll, down one spot from last week. The PairWise ranking system used to mimic the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee process has Niagara at No. 10.
