The Best of 2022

A number of player single-season records were broken this season, and a few players and teams came close. Here is a list of the new player records (in bold), and teams and players that are now in the top ten in some category. Categories I looked at were:

  • For non-goalies, goals, assists, points, loose balls, face-offs (wins, attempts, percentage), CTOs, goals/game, assists/game, and points/game.
  • For goalies, GAA, saves, minutes, wins, and save %. Yes, someone entered the top 10 in losses in a season but let’s focus on the positive.
  • Teams: wins, total goals, goals allowed, and goal differential.

Teams

  • Buffalo Bandits – 14 wins is tied for 5th, tied with the 2019 Bandits
  • Toronto Rock – 13 wins is tied for 10th
  • Buffalo Bandits – 247 goals is 9th all-time, beating the 2019 Bandits by 3
