Season Notes
Dubuque, Kansas City, Omaha and Waterloo compete in the 2015 USA Hockey High School National Championships at Hardee's Iceplex in Chesterfield, Missouri, March 19-23. All four teams advance through the round-robin games to the championship bracket. Omaha and Waterloo lose in the quarterfinals, Kansas City is eliminated in the semifinals, and Dubuque loses 2-1 in the championship game to Cherry Creek, Colorado.
For the first time in the six-year history of the high school national championships, teams are divided into pure and combined divisions. MHSHL teams compete in the combined division that includes teams that draw players from more than one high school.
The League's "multiplier rule" for game misconducts is discontinued - only USA Hockey multiplier rules are enforced.
Because there is a sliding scale for the number of protected players based on team enrollment, protected players are now ineligible to participate in Junior Varsity games.
Players must now receive a minimum of 6 votes during the second round of voting to be declared an All-Star.
Kansas City Jets wins its first regular-season championship.
