With its thrilling 3–1 vic­tory over Boston Col­lege last weekend, the men’s hockey team did more than just knock off the nation’s top-​​ranked team. It also vaulted into the national rankings.

The Huskies found them­selves ranked No. 14 this week by U.S. Col­lege Hockey Online, the first time North­eastern has been nation­ally ranked in the Top 20 in more than three years. The team is also 2–0 for the first time since 1999 after beating two ranked oppo­nents: BC, which fell to No.3 as a result of the loss, and No. 19 Mer­ri­mack, in its season opener.

In other men’s hockey news, North­eastern freshman for­ward Kevin Roy has been named the Pro Ambi­tions Hockey East Rookie of the Week. Roy, a 5-​​foot-​​10-​​inch for­ward from Quebec, netted the game-​​winning goals in each of the Huskies first two games and also tal­lied an assist in the season opener.

The men’s hockey team was also named the Hockey East Team of the Week.
