Union moved up one spot in the USCHO.com/NCAA top-20 college hockey poll Monday, while RPI returned after a one-week absence.

Coming off ECAC Hockey wins over Princeton and Quinnipiac, the Dutchmen (7-1 ECACH, 10-3-2 overall), went from 11th to 10th in the poll. The Dutchmen will host Dartmouth on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Messa Rink, and then face the new top-ranked team, St. Cloud State, for a two-game series starting Friday in St. Cloud, Minn.

In the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine top-15 poll, Union moved up from 14th to ninth.

The Engineers (3-3-3, 8-5-3), who tied Quinnipiac and beat Princeton over the weekend, are 18th in the poll. They dropped out of last Monday’s poll. RPI will host 20th-ranked Denver in a two-game series at Houston Field House at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
