TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – NOTRE DAME HOUNDS
The Notre Dame Hounds toppled reigning SMAAAHL champion Regina, finishing 10 points clear of the Pat Canadians to take the regular-season title. The Hounds started hot, opening the season on a six-game win streak, but it was their scorching run through the middle of the season, where they rattled off 17 consecutive wins from Nov. 18 to Jan. 13 that put them ahead for good. Notre Dame was strong on both ends of the ice, leading the league in goals with 195 while allowing a stingy 67 against. The Hounds spread the scoring, with four players in the top 20, led by Luke Mylymok, whose 61 points (32G 29A) were good for seventh.
