It's no surprise that Monarch remains the No. 1 team in the CHSAANow.com hockey rankings. The Coyotes topped No. 2 Regis Jesuit 3-0 Saturday, staking their claim as the team to beat.

They received all nine first-place votes this week.

The Raiders saw no movement, remaining at No.2 thanks in part to a win over Cherry Creek on Friday.

No new teams were added to this week's rankings, but the bottom of the poll did see some shakeup in placement. Lewis-Palmer jumped to No. 6 and Mountain Vista and Cherry Creek both dropped two spots. The Golden Eagles come in at No. 8 while the Bruins round out the rankings at No. 10.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association. During the regular season, the poll will release each Monday.
