NAHL Weekend Preview

January 21, 2022

It is a jam-packed weekend in the NAHL with 28 of the 29 teams in action as 28 games are on the schedule from Friday through Sunday.

The NAHL has had a great run of NCAA commitments in recent weeks, including eight more this past week, bringing the current season total to 162 NCAA Division I commitments.

With the schedule over halfway done and the USA Hockey trade deadline looming in just a few weeks, the time is now for teams to make a move in the standings.

The 2022 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament is just a few weeks away and will take place from February 7-8 at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania. The UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex is the practice home to the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 2022 Top Prospects rosters will be announced on Tuesday, January 25th.

This weekend in the Central Division, valuable points are on the line as the 1st place Austin Bruins host the 3rd place Aberdeen Wings with just five points separating the teams. The St. Cloud Norsemen look to track down a playoff spot as they are in Minot to take on the Minotauros. Finally in Bismarck, the Bobcats will look to keep their winning ways going as they host the North Iowa Bulls, who are holding down the 4th and final playoff spot.

In the East, the 1st place New Jersey Titans will host the Northeast Generals, who are in a tie for the 4th and final playoff spot with the Jamestown Rebels. The Rebels are also in action as they host the 2nd place Maryland Black Bears. The Maine Nordiques will be looking to snap a four-game slide as they host the Johnstown Tomahawks for two games.

In the Midwest, two teams look to extend lengthy winning streaks as the Janesville Jets look to continue their five-game winning streak with three games in Kenai River. The Springfield Jr. Blues have won four straight and will host the Chippewa Steel for two games. In other action, the Minnesota Magicians and Minnesota Wilderness battle in a home-and-home series for the second straight weekend. In the final series, Anchorage returns to action, making the trip North to face the Fairbanks Ice Dogs.

In the South, the Lone Star Brahmas are 8-2-0 in their last 10 and will look for a series sweep against Amarillo on Friday after a 5-0 win on Thursday. In other action, the 1st place New Mexico Ice Wolves host the Shreveport Mudbugs. Odessa will look to snap their three-game slide with a series in Wichita Falls. The Corpus Christi IceRays are in El Paso to take on the Rhinos with both teams needing points to get out of the bottom of the South standings.
