ECAC Hockey mid-weekend update

It’s 1am, so this is going to be quick and dirty.

  • Cornell now holds the tiebreaker with Union. If they finish tied atop the standings, Cornell get the No. 1 seed, and the teams will share the Cleary Cup. Each school has secured a first-round bye.
  • Colgate, Harvard, Clarkson and Quinnipiac each have a shot at a bye as well. Colgate and Harvard control their own destinies: win, and they get a week off.
  • Yale, Dartmouth and St. Lawrence are fighting for the two remaining home-ice spots. Yale has the leg up (21 points), and the Big Green and Saints go head to head in Hanover tomorrow. Dartmouth holds the tiebreaker should the teams draw, leaving SLU the odd man out.
  • Princeton, RPI and Brown are each awaiting their draws: all three will be on the road next weekend.

That’s all for now. Good night – or morning – and we’ll be sure to keep you updated as quickly and frequently as possible. Be sure to check SullivanHockey and Nate_Owen41 for all the news that’s fit to tweet.
