Wethersfield entered the 2022 postseason as both the #3 seed in the CIAC Division 2 tournament and in the #3 spot in the Hockey Night in Boston Connecticut Division 2 rankings. Four games and four wins later, the Eagles are flying in the #1 position in both spots.

The Eagles completely a big surge by taking down North Haven for the Division 2 state championship. In doing so, Wethersfield knocked the Nighthawks off their perch and down a rung to #2 in the final rankings.

Lyman Hall ends at #3 after falling to Wethersfield in the semifinals, and crosstown rival Sheehan is #4 after suffering the same fate vs. North Haven.

Farmington Valley was looking strong at the end of the regular season, but a lopsided quarterfinal loss to Sheehan drops the Generals down to #5.

One team that flew under the radar all season is Woodstock Academy, which cracks the final rankings at #6 after reaching the quarters before falling to Lyman Hall in overtime.

Daniel Hand struggled to gain footing for much of the season, but the #7 Tigers gave North Haven a one-goal battle in the quarters.

Westhill-Stamford drops to #8 after losing to Daniel Hand in the opening round.
