This is the 2019-20 Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Men's Hockey season.
Membership Changes[edit | edit source]
- The conference announced on May 22, 2019 that the St. Thomas Tommies will be involuntarily removed from the conference in all sports after the 2020-21 academic year. The decision was made after consideration with the other members of the conference as St. Thomas has accounted for nearly half of the conference championships in all sports from 2003 to 2018. The school is leaving the conference in good standing.
- On May 27, 2020 the College of St. Scholsatica announced that the St. Scholastica Saints men's ice hockey and St. Scholastica Saints women's ice hockey teams would be joining the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference from the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association for the 2021-22 playing season replacing the St. Thomas Tommies (NCAA) men's ice hockey and St. Thomas Tommies (NCAA) women's ice hockey teams respectively.

Standings[edit | edit source]
The MIAC uses a system where teams are awarded three points for a regulation or overtime win, two points for a shootout win, one point for a shootout loss, no points for an regulation or overtime loss. The NCAA allows shootout for conference games; but, considers games determined in a shootout to be a tie for record keeping purposes and these standings reflect the NCAA policy for W-L-T but the Pts. totals are based on the conference's system.
