The NM Ice Wolves wrapped their 2020-2021 season in mid-May at home after playing most of its games, both home and away, on the road in Texas and Louisiana due to strict public health guidelines in New Mexico that prohibited competition and travel for much of the year. The 2020-2021 season also marked two historic firsts for the organization with forward Cole Hanson becoming the first ever NM Ice Wolves player to be named to the All-NAHL 1st Team and the league's All-South Division Team. Nikolai Dulak was honored to be named to the NAHL South Division All-Rookie team and All-NAHL Rookie Second team. Spencer Rudrud, Jack Bayless, Brandon Holt and Owen Parker were all named to and participated in the NAHL Top Prospects tournament in June as part of the league's Robertson Cup championship week in Blaine, MN. Dulak, Holt and Parker are back with the NM Ice Wolves this season.
