Men’s Hockey: Northeastern Picked 7th in HEWBA Preseason Poll, Roy Named To All-Hockey East Team

By: Josh Brown

The Northeastern University men’s hockey team was picked to finish seventh in the annual Hockey East Writers and Broadcasters Association annual poll released just after midnight on Sunday. The seventh-place projection comes a year after the Huskies finished sixth in the conference last season, finishing with a 16-16-4 record (11-9-2 HE).

Boston College led the way atop the poll, receiving 20 of 35 possible first-place votes, trailed by last year’s Hockey East champion Boston University Terriers.

As most suspected, senior forward Kevin Roy was selected to the preseason All-Hockey East Team, joined by F Tyler Kelleher (New Hampshire), F Danny O’Regan (Boston University), F Alex Tuch (Boston College), D Matt Grzelcyk (Boston University), D Ian McCoshen (Boston College) and G Thatcher Demko (Boston College).
