Union slips to fourth in USCHO.com/NCAA hockey poll

While we await word from ECAC Hockey on potential suspensions from the Mayor's Cup postgame brawl Saturday, Union dropped a spot in Monday's USCHO.com/NCAA hockey poll.

The ECACH-leading Dutchmen (10-2 ECACH, 16-5-3 overall) slipped from third to fourth. They earned 847 points. Union beat Harvard, 4-3, Friday before dropping a 2-1 decision to RPI at the Times Union Center.

The postgame brawl led to Union suspending coach Rick Bennett for two games because of trying to get after RPI coach Seth Appert. Two players from each team -- Union's Mat Bodie and Eli Lichtenwald and RPI's Luke Curadi and Mike Zalewski -- were suspended one game for receiving game disqualifications.

The ECACH has six teams in the poll. Besides Union, Quinnipiac is third, Cornell is 11th, Yale is 13th, Clarkson is 15th and Colgate is 18th.
