NAHL Weekend Preview | North American Hockey League

April 8, 2022



There are only two weekends left in the NAHL season 2021-22, as 28 matches highlight the schedule from Friday to Sunday.

Within this weekend, half of the seats in the 2022 Robertson Cup playoffs are still unclaimed and two division titles are still up for grabs.

The NAHL Combines are in full swing and the Robertson Cup playoffs begin on April 21st. As a reminder, the top four teams in each division qualify for the playoffs.

It was another big week for NCAA commitments as nine more players committed to playing NCAA hockey, bringing the current season up to 233 players.

In the Central this weekend, the Austin Bruins only need one win to win a playoff spot as they host 2.nd place Aberdeen Wings. Minot is in a similar situation where a win or two will get them in the playoffs as they host Division Champion St. Cloud. The must-win matches are in Mason City this weekend as Bismarck visits North Iowa. Both teams have 54 points and any loss will eliminate them from the playoffs.

Things in the East are similar to the Central. Johnstown is in Maine and only needs one win to win a playoff spot. The Jamestown Rebels, who have won their last seven in a row, are in a similar situation as they are in Danbury this weekend. Maryland still need a few more wins to claim their playoff spot as they are in New Jersey trying to stave off the Northeast. The generals face almost a must-win situation on Sunday as they host Maine.

In the Midwest, Springfield Jr. remained. Blues in pursuit of the regular season title and a spot in the playoffs as they closed out Chippewa on Thursday with 4-0. The two teams end the series on Friday. Up in Alaska, the Anchorage Wolverines are fighting hard for the final playoff spot with a point over Janesville, and they are in the Fairbanks to face the Ice Dogs, who are trying to win the division. The Jets, who are one point from the final playoff spot, have a huge series at home against Wilderness, who are only three points ahead. The last series has Magicians in the Kenai River.

In the South, the four playoff teams are known, but the division title is up for grabs this weekend in New Mexico as 2nd.nd space Ice Wolves hosts 1st place Brahmas. Lone Star only needs one regular win to claim the division crown. Wichita Falls appears to lock 3rd space with a few games in El Paso. Shreveport Mudbugs looks to gain ground on 3rd place as they host the Corpus Christi. The last series has Odessa in Amarillo.
