The Ferris State University men's ice hockey team will begin its 2009-10 season ranked 36th place in the 2009-10 Inside College Hockey (INCH) Preseason Power Rankings which were recently issued by the online collegiate hockey media outlet.

The 58 teams who compete at the NCAA Division I level were ranked by the Inside College Hockey editors and staff.

Denver earned the number one distinction while a pair of Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) teams - Notre Dame and Miami (Ohio) were ranked second and third, respectively.

The remaining CCHA schools to be ranked were Michigan (fifth), Ohio State (17th), Northern Michigan (19th), Nebraska-Omaha (24th), Alaska (30th),  Michigan State (39th), Lake Superior State (46th), Western Michigan (48th), and Bowling Green State (53rd). 

The INCH staff released this comment about the 2008-09 Bulldogs and their 36th-place preseason ranking - "The Bulldogs struggled to score goals a year ago.  Good thing their top returnees are defenseman (junior Zach Redmond) and a goalie (sophomore Taylor Nelson). "

Ferris State, which is under the direction of 18th-year head coach Bob Daniels, will officially open its 2009-10 season this weekend (Oct. 9-10) as the Bulldogs skate against the Canisius Golden Griffins in a two-game non-league series at Buffalo, N.Y.  A 7:05 p.m. (EDT) opening faceoff is scheduled for both contests at the Buffalo Sports Arena.
