ECAC Hockey Cleary Cup-champion Union remains third in the USCHO.com/NCAA Hockey top-20 poll for the third straight week.

The Dutchmen (16-3-1 ECACH, 22-6-4 overall) earned 901 points, 17 more than last week’s poll. They beat Clarkson, 5-0, and St. Lawrence, 6-2, over the weekend to clinch the top seed for the ECACH tournament for the third time in four years.

The top four teams in the poll are the same four squads that played in the 2012 Frozen Four. Boston College is ranked first, Minnesota is No. 2 and Ferris State is fourth.

Union is the highest-ranked ECACH team in the poll. The Dutchmen close out the regular season this weekend with games at Yale on Friday and at Brown on Saturday.
