#1 ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY WILL LOOK TO DEFEND ITS TITLE 

UNION LAKE, MI – Arizona State University is the #1 team in the 2014-2015 ACHA Men’s Division 1 Ranking #18 and will enter the 2015 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships looking to defend its title as the top seed before jumping up to NCAA Men’s Division I next season.  The Sun Devils took home the Western Collegiate Hockey League Regular Season Championship for the second year in a row and boast a 31-3-1 record.  #2 Central Oklahoma swept arch-rival Oklahoma in a home-and-home series, winning 2-0 at home on Friday before squeaking out a 2-1 overtime-shootout win on Saturday on the road.  With the Bronchos holding down the #2 seed, the Western Collegiate Hockey League will send the top two seeds to the 2015 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships.  Minot State held the #3 spot after a 12-3 thrashing of NJCAA Dakota College at Bottineau, and the #3 seeded Beavers will look to regain the title they won in 2013.  Robert Morris Illinois swept league-rival Lindenwood over the weekend (3-1, 3-0) and will enter the tournament as the #4 seed, looking to improve on its Runners-Up finish in the 2014 National Championship Game.  Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League Regular Season Champions Stony Brook swept Lebanon Valley(2-0, 6-1) and will enter as the #5 seed, looking to improve on its semi-finals appearance a year ago at nationals.

This ranking marks the deadline for choosing the 20 participating teams for the 2015 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships.  The top 14 teams in the ranking will all return to the 2015 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships, including #6 seed Ohio (Central States Collegiate Hockey League Regular Season Champions); #7 seed Oklahoma; #8 seed Adrian (Great Lakes Collegiate Hockey League Regular Season Champions); #9 seed Lindenwood; #10 seed Iowa State; #11 seed Liberty; #12 seed Rhode Island; #13 seed Illinois; and #14 seed Davenport.  Joining those 14 schools will be 6 new teams that did not participate a year ago: #15 seed Niagara (Northeast Collegiate Hockey League Regular Season Champions); #16 seed Colorado; #17 seed Buffalo; #18 seed Robert Morris Pennsylvania (College Hockey Mid-America Regular Season Champions); #19 seed Villanova (Eastern Collegiate Hockey League Regular Season Champions); and the host of this years tournament, #20 seed John Carroll.

This week’s big gainers were #11 Liberty (up 2 spots), #19 Syracuse (up 2 spots), and #23 Navy (up 2 spots).

The Western Collegiate Hockey League leads the way with all 6 of its member teams being ranked, as does the 5-team Central States Collegiate Hockey, followed by the Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League and the Great Lakes Collegiate Hockey League, which each have 4 ranked teams in the Top 25.

Over the past twelve seasons, 10 different schools have won the ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championship: Illinois (2), Lindenwood (2), Arizona State, Davenport, Delaware, Minot State, Oakland, Ohio, Penn State, and Rhode Island.

Beginning its 24th season of action, there have been a total of 12 schools that have won the ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championship:

  • Penn State (5 times)
  • Ohio (4 times)
  • Illinois (2 times)
  • Lindenwood (2 times)
  • North Dakota State (2 times)
  • Arizona State
  • Davenport
  • Delaware
  • Iowa State
  • Minot State
  • Oakland
  • Rhode Island

54 teams will compete in Men’s Division 1 this season, including two new teams: Midland University, located in Fremont, NE, and the Indiana Institute of Technology, located in Fort Wayne, IN.

Here is how the ranking is going to work using the computers:  The ACHA will use the two computer rankings generated by USHSHO.com, Ranking A (Wins with Maximum Goal Differential of 7) and Ranking B (Wins with Maximum Goal Differential of 1), and come up with an average of the two rankings.  The ACHA will then use the list generated from the average for its weekly ranking.  Ties will be broken using the higher ranked team from Ranking B until the Top 25 teams are listed.  Games that go to a shootout will be scored as ties.

The computer ranking will for the second time determine the 20 teams that qualify for the 2015 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships, which will include the following seven autobids:

  • (CHMA) College Hockey Mid-America – ROBERT MORRIS PENNSYLVANIA
  • (ECHA) Eastern Collegiate Hockey Association- VILLANOVA
  • (ESCHL) Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League- STONY BROOK
  • (GLCHL) Great Lakes Collegiate Hockey League – ADRIAN
  • (NECHL) Northeast Collegiate Hockey League – NIAGARA
  • (WCHL) Western Collegiate Hockey League- ARIZONA STATE
  • (HOST) JOHN CARROLL

The 19th ranking of the regular season will be released on Friday, February 27, 2015.

The 2015 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships will be hosted March 5-10 by John Carroll University and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission at the OBM Arena in Strongsville, OH. This will be the fourth year of the 20-team format.
