The top five teams remain unchanged in the latest U Sports men's hockey rankings, with the defending champion UNB Varsity Reds holding down the top spot for the 19th time in the last 20 polls dating back to last season.

The V-Reds received 11 first place votes and 144 points to outpace Alberta (3 and 135), Saskatchewan (117), St. FX (1 and 107), and McGill (74). Calgary, Ryerson, Acadia, Saint Mary's, and Queen's make up the rest of the top ten.

This weekend may provide a shake-up to the rankings as there are match-ups between UNB/Acadia, UNB/Saint Mary's, Alberta/Calgary. and Queen's/Ryerson on the docket.
