Denver takes over the top spot in both polls

  Denver passed Minnesota Duluth for the No. 1 spot in the country.

The Denver Pioneers are back at No. 1 on the latest editions of the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls, both of which were announced Monday.

RANKINGS: Full top 20

Denver was also ranked No. 1 by ESPN broadcaster John Buccigross in his weekly #cawlidgehawkey poll. This is the first time this season that the Pioneers have been atop all three polls at the same time and the first time in DU Athletics history that men’s lacrosse and men’s hockey have been simultaneously ranked No. 1 in the nation.

Denver currently leads UMD by two points in the NCHC Standings and the race for the Penrose Cup. The Pioneers (22-6-4, 14-3-3-2 NCHC) will face St. Cloud State (15-14-1, 9-10-1-0 NCHC) this coming Friday/Saturday night at Magness Arena in their final home series of the regular season.
