NA3HL Weekend Preview
November 13, 2015
The NA3HL features a little bit of everything as 32 games are on the schedule for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The season is moving closer to the halfway point and anticipation is high for the NA3HL Showcase in Blaine, MN, which is just a month away.
Of the division leaders, the Metro Jets have the largest lead at six points, but after that it drops and all six divisions have some good races going.

In the Central Division, Chicago looks for their first win of the season with a new head coach Todd McIlrath making his debut in a home series against Wisconsin and La Crosse and Rochester face one another in a home and home series.
