It’s Halloween night, I’m working until 7:30 Tuesday morning, so what better time than now to roll out the first ever Necessary Roughness #CawlidgeHawkey rankings? The NCHC (Minnesota-Duluth, Denver, and North Dakota) holds the top three spots this week, with BC and BU rounding out the top 5. This coming weekend will be highlighted by #1 Minnesota-Duluth traveling to #10 St. Cloud State, #3 North Dakota going to #13 Minnesota to take on the Gophers, and a home and home matchup between #5 Boston University and #22 Northeastern. Next weekend in an early season top 3 matchup, #2 Denver travels to the defending national champions, #3 North Dakota, who recently dropped two in a row to current #1 Minnesota-Duluth. Teams around the country are all hitting the ice with one goal in mind, winning a national championship next April in Chicago.
