No. 1 Quinnipiac hoists Cleary Cup

The Quinnipiac Bobcats clinched the ECAC title on the weekend with a pair of Ivy League victories over Brown and Yale.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats, the Number 1 team in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll for the ninth consecutive week, clinched the ECAC title on the weekend with a pair of Ivy League victories over Brown and Yale.

The Bobcats won their second straight Cleary Cup that goes to the regular season conference champion, and found themselves as the unanimous top pick in the nation after garnering all 34 first-place votes.

Quinnipiac rolled to a pair of 4-1 wins defeating Brown on Friday to clinch the Cup before defeating No. 7 Yale on Saturday to finish with 27 wins, two losses, and seven ties on the season.

Trail natives and former Smoke Eaters Travis St. Denis, Scott Davidson, and Craig Martin all play for the Bobcats as they start their run to the NCAA championship Frozen Four.

St. Denis, as senior in his fourth year at Quinnipiac, finished second in team scoring with 18 goals and 20 assists behind Sam Anas with 43 points. Davidson picked up a goal and an assist in his final two games to record five goals and 11 points in 33 games this season, while Martin added two assists in 13 games in his freshman campaign.

The Bobcats will have this weekend off with a bye for the first round of the ECAC Hockey Championship Tournament. Quinnipiac will host a best-of-three quarterfinals series on Mar. 11-13 at High Point Solutions Arena at the TD Bank Sports Center.

The Bobcats are also ranked No. 1 in the USCHO.com Division I Poll as well as the PairWise Rankings.
