SEASON NOTES

After a year’s absence due to low numbers, the Fremont Flyers rejoined the League. The League remained divided into three divisions and continued with a 32-game schedule. Teams play each team in their respective division 4 times and play each team in opposing divisions 2 times. Teams in the Central and East divisions will play 2 additional interdivision games.

After a 13-year stint in Ames, the MHSHL Championship Weekend will move to the MidAmerican Energy Company RecPlex in West Des Moines, a new state-of-the-art facility that features a 1,500-seat hockey arena, within 300,000 square feet of indoor space for other sporting events. RecPlex will be the Des Moines Oak Leafs home arena while the Capitals remain at Buccaneer Arena in Urbandale.

Because of schedule irregularities in last season's pandemic season the League opted to invite all the Varsity teams and six Jr. Varsity teams to the year-end tournament. Because this decision garnered popularity with team offcials, the new format continued in 2021-22. All 13 Varsity teams and six Jr. Varsity teams qualify for the event. The top three Varsity teams earned a bye. The remaining ten teams played a qualifier round. The top two JV teams earned a bye while the third through sixth teams played a qualifier round. The League returned to team standings based on points earned during the regular season.

The year-end tournament was interrupted by tornado warnings during the second period of the second Varsity semifinal game on Saturday between the #1 seed Waterloo and 4th seed Des Moines Capitals. The game was stopped, players were moved to their locker rooms and all spectators were evacuated to the locker room hallway under the arena seats. The game was delayed for about 30 to 45 minutes.

Waterloo Warriors goaltender, Caleb Raisty, finished the regular season with a 0.959 save percentage surpassing the single-season record of 0.957 held by Des Moines Oak Leafs netminder Jordan Buenting during the 2006-07 season. Raisty also set a new career-high save percentage mark of 0.952. Buenting had held the previous career record of 0.951 from 2005-07.
