UCHC Announces Preseason Coaches’ Poll


ROCHESTER, NY – The United Collegiate Hockey Conference is pleased to announce its third annual preseason coaches’ poll and player watch list. The preseason coaches’ poll is an annual compiled survey of the league’s coaches regarding how the standings may play out in the conference over the upcoming months. The player watch list is an annual preseason honor roll of players expected to make an impact on their teams, and on the conference picture.

For a third consecutive year, Elmira has been selected at the top of the preseason poll. The Soaring Eagles have gone to the NCAA quarterfinals or better in each of the last seven seasons while winning the first two UCHC regular season and postseason titles. The Soaring Eagles finished last season at 24-3-1 and were a flawless 18-0 in UCHC play during a run to the NCAA quarterfinals. Elmira commanded eleven of the twelve first place votes.

William Smith was second in the poll after amassing an 18-8-2 overall record, and a 12-4-2 conference record. They were the runner-up in the conference tournament a season ago.

Nazareth was third after a tremendous inaugural season that saw them land as the second place team in the regular season.

Stevenson drew a single first place vote in the poll.

The full results of the poll, and the 2019-20 UCHC Women’s Player Watch List, are below.
