Season Notes
The League welcomed a 14th team member, Boji Mammoths. The team plays out of the Boji Bay Ice Arena in Spirit Lake, Iowa.
After 37 years of hockey in the North Iowa Arena, Mason City opened the new Mason City Multipurpose Arena. The facility was built inside a vacant JC Penny building as part of the city's downtown redevelopment project. First game was Saturday, January 18, 2019, when the Mohawks hosted the Kansas City Jets.
The League ordered new patches for on-ice officials. The patches designated the referees and linesmen as on-ice officials for the MHSHL.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak that hit the nation in early spring, USA Hockey's High School National Championship Tournament was canceled, as well as, America's Hockey Showcase.
Policy Changes:
1. Coaches select the League’s top players designated as First-Team All-Stars, Honorable Mention All-Stars and All-League using the following new procedure:
Each head coach will submit a maximum of 8 names from the team’s roster, in order of ability, for the All-Star ballot. There will be one round of voting. Coaches cast their vote for the top 15 forwards, 8 defensemen, and 3 goaltenders - regardless of division. Coaches are allowed to vote for players on their own team. The 9 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goaltenders with the most votes will be declared First-Team All-Stars. In the event of a tie vote, all tied players will be declared First-Team All-Stars.
Any remaining players receiving at least 6 votes will be declared Honorable Mention All-Stars.
The 3 forwards, 2 defensemen and 1 goaltender with the most votes will be declared All-League. In the event of a tie vote, all tied players will be declared All-League. 2. Division Champions: Division champions are no longer guaranteed a spot in the year-end tournament. The top-eight teams in the final regular-season standings earn a spot in the year-end tournament.
3. Tournament Overtime Ice Scrapes: Ice scrapes are now scheduled into year-end tournament games. Ice will be resurfaced after the first overtime period and after every two successive overtime periods.
New Scheduling Format: The 14 League teams will be divided into 3 divisions and play a 32-game schedule. All teams play each team in their own division four times. The East Division plays all other opponents twice. Teams in the West and Central divisions play East division teams twice, while only four of five teams from both the West and Central play each other twice. The fifth team not playing is based on the previous season standings
The AHL Iowa Wild held the first "Iowa Hockey Classic" December 21, at Wells Fargo Arena featuring a Des Moines Capitals and Oak Leafs matchup. The event was to celebrate the history of hockey in Iowa. The Capitals topped the Oak Leafs 6-3 in the Varsity contest.
Two records were surpassed during the season:
1. New record for Career Assists: Kole Latusick, Waterloo Warriors 2016-2020 - 130 Career Assists
Old record: Cole Despenas, Mason City Mohawks 2000-2004 - 125 Career Assits
2. New record for Single-Season Goaltender Shots on Goal: Walker Radcliffe, Boji Mammoths - 1,554 Shots
Old record: Erik McHenry, Mason City Mohawks 2018-2019 - 1,322 Shots on Goal
