OTTAWA – The UPEI Panthers maintained the No. 4 ranking in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) men’s hockey rankings this week.
The UNB Varsity Reds, coached by Bedeque native Gardiner MacDougall, remain the No. 2-ranked team, and the Alberta Golden Bears hold down the top spot for the fourth time in as many rankings this season.
The Panthers split a pair of home games last weekend, and sport a 3-1 (won-lost) record in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference. UNB posted a pair of road wins to remain perfect in the regular season at 4-0.
The Acadia Axemen, who edged UPEI 2-1 on Saturday night, are the only other AUS team to crack the top-10 rankings.
The CIS announced the latest rankings Tuesday afternoon.
