From the FreeP: Terriers drop in rankings after rough weekend

By Annie Maroon/DFP Staff

After its two losses last weekend, the Boston University men’s hockey team fell from No. 9 to No. 11 in this week’s USCHO.com poll and from No. 10 to No. 11 in the USA Today poll. The Terriers (12–9–0, 9–6–0 Hockey East) are also now tied with next week’s opponent, Providence College, for third place in Hockey East after sitting alone in third for most of the season so far.

The Terriers’ bad weekend was a good weekend for the surging University of Massachusetts-Lowell, which moved from No. 18 to No. 15 and No. 15 to No. 12 in the two polls, respectively, with its 4–3 win over BU.

Providence is not ranked in either poll, although it received 24 votes in the USCHO.com poll.

Always a plus to have Hohmann on the ice
Sophomore forward Cason Hohmann leads the Terriers in plus-minus with a plus-17 rating. That puts him fourth in Hockey East and six points higher than the second-highest Terrier rating, which is the plus-11 of his linemate, senior Wade Megan.

Hohmann certainly is not an improbable candidate to lead that category, since he also leads BU in points (22) and assists (16). He is also tied for third in goals, with six, and has spent the year centering Megan, who leads the team and is tied for second in Hockey East with 12 goals.
