Nationals quest begins for North Iowa, Flint and Helena

April 3, 2014
The USA Hockey Tier III Junior Nationals begin on Thursday and the event has a distinct NA3HL flavor to it. One of the favorites heading into the event in the two-time defending NA3HL Silver Cup Champion and the defending National Champion North Iowa Bulls. Last week, the Bulls stormed their way through the Silver Cup Tournament, outscoring their opponents 24-4 in the four wins.
The team that North Iowa beat in the Championship Game, the Flint Junior Generals, will also be representing the NA3HL at Nationals as the #2 seed from the league.
Finally, one of the newest additions to the NA3HL, the Helena Bighorns, who joined the NA3HL a few weeks ago as a part of the AWHL acquisition, will also be at the event as the Champion of the AWHL in 2013-14. 
All three teams are in different pools and judging by their records, each will be a difficult out in the tournament. North Iowa posted a 45-3-0 record during the regular season. Flint posted a 42-4-2 record during the regular season and Helena posted a very impressive 46-1-1 record during the regular season in AWHL play.
