This year will start with a lot of pressure for the Buckeyes, as they start the 2018-19 hockey season as the preseason #1 overall team in the nation, getting 18 first place votes. They ended last season as the #3 overall team, and return nearly everyone while adding a few stellar pieces as well.

They will get started this weekend as they travel to Arizona State for a Friday/Saturday matchup. Both games will face-off at 10:05pm.

To open the season, the #1 ranked Buckeyes headed to Tempe to face-off with Arizona State. Although it wasn't the score they were looking for, OSU ultimately won 3-2. At the 15:02 mark of the first period is when the only goal of the period came, Freddy Gerard scored the first Buckeye goal of the year. Arizona State was able to tie the game just 50 seconds into the second period on a power play goal. The Buckeyes were able to add a flurry of goals a little later in the period, as they were able to score two consecutive power play goals to take a 3-1 lead. The Sun Devils knocked a goal in with 2 seconds remaining in the period to draw a little closer. A large amount of saves highlighted the third period, as neither team was able to strike the back of the net.

They will conclude their Tempe trip on Saturday, as they two teams face-off again tomorrow at 10pm.

For the top ranked Buckeyes, they ended their first weekend of competition on a high note by winning at Arizona State 3-0 to earn a series sweep. As time was running out in the first period, and a scoreless game, Ohio State's Ronnie Hein dumped one in the back of the net for the Buckeyes first lead. The entire second period went scoreless for both teams. Then, at the 13:26 mark in the third period, Mason Jobst was tripped up on a breakaway to earn a penalty shot, that he didn't miss on, advancing the Buckeyes lead to 2-0. The final goal of the game came in garbage time, as Arizona State emptied their net to try and get some goals, and OSU was able to take advantage to put some icing on the cake, when Ronnie Hein scored his second goal of the game.

Up next for OSU, they will host UMass this coming Friday and Saturday.

In this week's rankings, the Buckeyes remained as the #1 team in the nation, picking up two road wins. The only thing that changed was they received 18 first place votes in the preseason, and this week they received 38 first place votes.
