CIS Top 10 Rankings: UNB #1

The CIS released the first Men's Hockey Top 10 Rankings for the new season today. The CIS defending National champion UNB V-Reds (2-0) rest firmly on top of the competition, having received 165 points in the voting system. UNB received 15 of the possible 17 first place votes.

Rounding out the top three were McGill (4-0-0) and Manitoba (4-0-0). Also representing the AUS were Acadia (#4) and StFX (#7).

Some Notes of interest:

- UNB was ranked No. 1 in the last 11 national polls of 2010-11 and has topped 43 of the last 65 polls (.662) since 2006-07.

- This is the lowest ranking for Alberta since the Golden Bears were eighth on Oct. 28, 1996 (second poll of 1996-97). The Bears (2-1-1), had not been ranked lower than fourth in the country in the last 14 seasons (1997-98 to 2010-11).
