Kevin Wall (21) shoots the puck during the men’s hockey game vs. Robert Morris at Pegula Ice Arena on Friday, Oct. 25, 2019. No. 12/9 Penn State defeated Robert Morris 2-1.

As Penn State ramps up for its first matchup of the season, it found itself at the back end of the Big Ten preseason coaches' poll.

After appearing in the conference semifinals last year, the blue and white were picked to end the season sixth out of seven teams, with Minnesota topping the podium.

Some Nittany Lions did receive personal accolades, however.

Seniors Kevin Wall and Connor MacEachern earned preseason All-Big Ten honors after successful campaigns last season.

The Big Ten recognized Wall as a member of the 2022-23 preseason All-Big Ten second team while MacEachern earned honorable mention.

Penn State tied for the third-most selections for the preseason teams.
