I.D. MacDonald Era: 1921-1922 through 1922-1923

After much deliberation the Athletic Board of Control finally adopted ice hockey as a varsity sport for the 1921-1922 season. Under the direction of coach MacDonald and captain Chet Bros, the team played ten games, winning seven and losing three.  Among the club's defeated were Wisconsin, Luther Seminary, Hamline and the Michigan Mines, while losses were suffered to Hamline and the Michigan Mines.  Minnesota challenged the University of Michigan to play for a Big Ten title, but they would not meet the Gophers.  The starting lineup for the 1921-1922 team was as follows: E.G. Bergquist, Chet Bros, Addie Wyatt, Beaupre, Eldredge, Lorin Jacobsen and Lee Bartlett. Most of the home games were played continuously as a varsity sport at the University of Minnesota.
