St. Norbert Preseason Pick in NCHA

— St. Norbert has been voted the pre-season favorite to win its conference by NCHA coaches.

The Green Knights, who won the regular-season NCHA title in 2002, received three first-place votes and 59 total points in the conference’s pre-season coaches’ poll. St. Norbert finished 12-0-2 in conference play and 23-5-3 overall.

Defending NCHA playoff winner and NCAA national champion Wisconsin-Superior finished second in the voting with three first-place votes and 55 points. The Yellowjackets downed St. Norbert in overtime to win the conference playoff championship, and advanced to the NCAA Division III Frozen Four with a tie and a win over the Green Knights in that tournament’s quarterfinal round.

Wisconsin-River Falls received the other two first-place votes.
