Season Notes
The League expanded to 13 teams with the addition of the Fremont Flyers from Fremont, Nebraska. The Flyers were previously a member of the South Dakota high school circuit. The Flyers will compete in both the Varsity and JV levels and be placed in the West Division. Teams will now play a 32-game schedule, continuing to play division rivals 4 times and teams outside the division twice. Teams in the Central and West divisions will play two extra games against opponents to be determined.
Six new records were set during the season. Waterloo’s Ben Sinnott set a new mark for goals in a single season with 54. Waterloo goaltender Chase Pabst logged 14 shutouts surpassing the old record of 10. Mason City goaltender, Erik McHenry, faced a new high of 1,322 shots on goal. Dubuque’s Drew Millius tallied new records for single-season and career penalty minutes. And, Waterloo’s victory at the year-end tournament marked their eighth in team history, a new League record.
Team Midwest U-18 won the 2018 Rocky Mountain Regional Silver Stick Championship, qualifying for the Silver Stick finals in Sarnia, Canada. The team advanced to the championship game, falling to Halton HIlls, Ontario, Canada 4-1.
Policy changes:
1. All three Junior Varsity periods will now be extended to 15 minutes, up from 14.
2. A penalized player whose penalty minutes do not expire before the start of a Varsity or Junior Varsity shootout is ineligible to participate in the shootout until all other players have shot once.
3. If Varsity or Junior Varsity teams are tied at the end of regulation in a year-end tournament championship bracket game, teams will switch ends at the end of regulation and after each overtime period.
