Boston College was selected by the Hockey East media to win the league’s regular-season title for 2015-16 in the sixth annual poll of the Hockey East Writers & Broadcasters Association.
The Eagles received 20 of a possible 35 first-place votes and five teams in all were named on ballots for first place.
Last year’s regular season and tournament champion, Boston University, finished second in the balloting and was chosen for first on seven of 35 ballots.
The media also selected a preseason All-Hockey East Team.
Ballots were received from print and broadcast media covering the 12 league schools, as well as from regional and national media.
The official Hockey East preseason coaches’ poll will be released on Sept. 21 at the league’s annual preseason luncheon in Boston.
