USCHO’s 20th season of covering Division I men’s hockey starts in earnest next week with previews of some players to watch this season, followed by team and conference previews starting Oct. 4.
But we’ll kick things off Monday with the preseason USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll, and I’m not sure we’re going to have much of a consensus there.
This seems like a season where, going in, any number of teams could be predicted to win the national championship. You have strong contenders among the pack of schools that’s always in contention, and in recent years you’ve had a number of programs taking the final step toward championship status.
So let’s see if anyone can predict what the top 20 will look like on Monday. Fill in the form below with your picks (please avoid acronyms like MSU and UND that could represent two schools), and we’ll see if anyone matches the final result.
There’s no prize here, other than my deep respect for anyone who correctly picks all 20 spots. And I’ll mention your name and location in a follow-up post if you include it below.
