RPI moved up five spots in the USCHO.com/NCAA hockey top-20 poll Monday, and also earned a spot in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine top-15 poll.

Coming off wins over Boston University and Sacred Heart over the weekend, the Engineers (3-1) are 12th in both polls. They moved up five spots in the USCHO poll, and entered the USA Today poll for the first time this season.

Meanwhile, Union dropped out of both polls after getting swept at home by Lake Superior State. The Dutchmen (1-2-1) were No. 15 in the USA Today poll, and 16th in the USCHO poll. They got 27 points in the USCHO poll, and none in the USA Today poll.

Minnesota is the new No. 1 team in both polls.
