Wentworth, St. Michael's Favorites in Northeast

Leopards Top Division III Poll; Ice Knights Head Division II Poll

Compiled by USCHO Staff

CENTERVILLE, Mass. Wentworth and St. Michael's are the teams to beat in the Northeast Ice Hockey League according to league coaches.

The Leopards, who posted an 11-1-1 conference mark in 1999-00, garnered 10 first-place votes and totaled 154 points from the Division III Northeast coaches.

The Ice Knights received six points from the Division II head coaches to top the four Division II programs.

Fitchburg State, runner-up to Wentworth in the regular-season standings and conference tournament a year ago, shared the No. 2 slot in the Division III poll with Lebanon Valley. Each team received one first-place vote and 133 points.

UMass-Dartmouth (128 points) and Tufts (115) garnered the Nos. 4 and 5 spots, respectively.

New Hampshire College and Assumption shared the second spot among Division II programs. Each team received five points.

The Northeast League, which comprises 18 teams, breaks out its standings into Divisions II and III teams. While all league games count in the standings, separate standings are kept for Divisions II and III. The winner of the Division III Northeast tournament receives an automatic berth in the NCAA Division III championship; the four Division II teams are seeded for an ECAC postseason tournament, which includes St. Anselm from the ECAC East Ice Hockey League.
