NAHL Weekend Preview

March 12, 2021

22 games are on the schedule as the excitement continues to build towards the end of the regular season and the start of the Robertson Cup Playoffs.

The 2021 Robertson Cup Playoffs begin the third week in May and the top four teams in each division will qualify for the post-season. The four divisional playoff winners will meet for the 2021 Robertson Cup Championship, which is scheduled to be held at Fogerty Arena in Blaine, MN, from June 18-22.

It was another great week for NCAA commitments, as three more players announced their commitments to the next level. That brings bringing the current season total to 266 players (including a new record of 253 Division I commitments) who are playing in the league and are committed to playing NCAA hockey in 2020-21.

Things got started early in the Central Division this week as the St. Cloud Norsemen shutout the Minnesota Wilderness on Tuesday and Austin beat the Wilderness on Thursday, 4-2. The surging Norsemen have the tough task of trying to slow down the red-hot Aberdeen Wings this weekend. The Bismarck Bobcats are 5-0-1 in their last six and have a firm hold on 2nd place and will face the Minotauros in a home and home series, as the Minotauros have lost six straight. The Minnesota Wilderness will look to snap a four-game slide as they host Janesville.

In the East, 1st place is again up for grabs as the Johnstown Tomahawks begin the weekend with a three-point lead over Maine and the Tomahawks host Maryland, who have lost 10 straight games. The 2nd place Nordiques have a three-game set at home against Danbury. The 3rd place New Jersey Titans are 4-0-1 in their last five game and will host the Northeast Generals.

In the Midwest Division, the top spot will also be up for grabs as the 1st place Minnesota Magicians cling to a one-point lead over Janesvile. The Magicians will look for redemption against the Steel this weekend in Chippewa Falls, after the Steel beat the Magicians in Minnesota on Thursday. The Jets are in Cloquet to take on the Wilderness for two games. Kenai River will travel to Marshall, MN to take on Fairbanks in a single game on Saturday.

In the South, the Lone Star Brahmas regained the division lead with a 4-0 win in Odessa on Thursday. The two teams play two more times this weekend in Odessa. The 2nd place Shreveport Mudbugs, who are just a point back of the Brahmas, will host the New Mexico Ice Wolves in a two-game set. 3rd and 4th place clash as Amarillo travels to Wichita Falls.
