College Hockey rankings 2012: Denver moves up to No. 5 in Division I

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

The Denver Pioneers powered their way to a 2-0-0 start to the season over the weekend and moved up to No. 5 in the latest USCHO rankings.

Denver University used a strong start to make a jump up the USCHO rankings for Division I men's hockey, winning both of their games over the weekend to land at the No. 5 spot this week.

The Pioneers opened their season with a 5-1 over No. 9 UMass-Lowell on Friday night, with goaltender Sam Brittain making 37 saves as forward Daniel Doremus netted two goals in the victory. Denver would follow that up with a 5-2 win over Air Force on Saturday night.

The Pioneers opened the season at No. 7 in the rankings after winning 25 games in 2011-12 and making it to the NCAA Midwest Regional.

Boston College, ranked No. 1 in the preseason before a surprising opening-game loss, jumped back to the top spot in the rankings after a 2-0-0 record over the weekend. New Hampshire, unranked to start the season, is off to a surprising 3-0-0 start and currently sits at No. 12 in the rankings and garnered one first-place vote.
