TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – ST. JOHN’S MAPLE LEAFS
Simply dominant. The St. John’s Maple Leafs made it three-consecutive regular-season titles in the NLMMHL with a one-sided run through their 32-game schedule. The Maple Leafs posted a ridiculous +95 differential, scoring 152 goals (30 more than any other team) while allowing only 57 (62 less than any other team). St. John’s suffered back-to-back losses on Oct. 9 and 15, but didn’t drop another game, running off 21 straight victories to close out the regular season. Kyle McGrath paced the offence with 26 goals and 50 points, good for fifth in the NLMMHL scoring race; in all, five Maple Leafs hit double digits in goals, and six had at least 24 points. Joshua Langmead was terrific between the pipes, winning all of 14 of his starts and leading the league in goals-against average (1.13) and shutouts (five).
