GRAND FORKS, North Dakota — The University of North Dakota men's hockey team is back in favor with national poll voters.
Coach Dave Hakstol's team last week slipped from No. 1 to No. 3 after spending five straight weeks atop both the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine and USCHO.com polls. That was the result of two losses in the conference tournament.
The USA Today poll released Monday has UND back in the top spot, followed by Boston University, Omaha and Providence. Those four teams have qualified for the Frozen Four in Boston April 9-11.
North Dakota won the West Regional tournament last weekend in Fargo.
It marks the 11th different week this season that UND has been ranked atop either the USA Today or USCHO.com polls.
