U Sports Top Ten: V-Reds Head Into Playoffs #1

As conference playoffs get underway across the country beginning tonight - culminating with the University Cup, which begins a month from tomorrow - U Sports has released its latest men's hockey top ten rankings and the Varsity Reds have jumped back on top.

A perfect 2-0-0 weekend, including a 1st place-clinching victory over #3 ranked St. FX, allowed UNB to swap places with #2 Alberta. The V-Reds gained 10 first place votes and 145 points overall compared to Alberta's 5 and 140, respectively.

St. FX (106) just nudged out McGill (105) for 3rd spot with Saskatchewan (100) not too far behind.

The rest of the top ten includes Guelph (68), Saint Mary's (49), Acadia (45), Queen's (27), and UBC (16), who make their first appearance in the rankings since November 2015.
