Last season, Mason finished with an 8-5-0 record against division teams, and 13-7-1-1 overall, earning them a Top 10 ranking (8th) and a spot at Regionals for the first time in program history. This year, the team won all three preseason games and is 12-1-0 in the regular season. Mason is currently ranked second in the ACHA Atlantic Region. They’re also ranked first in the Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference (DVCHC) National Division, thanks to a 7-0-0 conference record, with 51 goals for and 21 against. The VCU Rams are part of the Blue Ridge Hockey Conference (BRCHC). They last faced Mason for the Commonwealth Cup in February 2016 in what turned out to be a tense battle. Tyler D’Agostino scored the tie-breaking goal with 28 seconds left in the game to lift Mason to a 2-1 victory.
