PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Following a 10-4 win against American International on Saturday, Providence moved up two places to No. 8 in the USCHO.com poll.

Complete poll

The Friars are now 3-0-0 on the season, including a season-opening sweep of then-No. 11 Minnesota State. It is the first time the Friars have opened a season with three consecutive wins since opening the 2003-04 season with a 4-0-0 mark.

In the victory against AIC, junior Ross Mauermann scored a goal for the third consecutive game and added a career-high three assists for a career-best four-point night. All told, nine Friars scored, including a two-goal showing by junior Shane Luke.

This week’s No. 8 ranking is the highest the Friars have reached in a national poll since also being ranked No. 8 in the Nov. 4, 2002 USA Today/American Hockey Magazine poll.

Last week at No. 10, the Friars reached the top 10 in the national polls for the first time since the first week of February 2006, when they were ranked ninth in both national polls.
