This time of year, we pause to give thanks.
On behalf of the NAHL, NA3HL, NA3EHL and NAPHL, along with its respective Board of Governors and Members, the league staff would like to wish everyone and happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
We first want to thank the 2,400+ players that play in our four leagues. These are the young men who chase their dreams and lay it all on the line, night in and night out, and in the process, keep us entertained and amazed.
We also take the time to thank all of the billet and host families who have opened up their homes to all of these players. It is difficult at times to be away from one’s real family and these billet families take the time to become a player’s second family, and often times one they will keep in touch with long after they are gone.
We also are thankful for the partners, families and fans of our four leagues for their support and passion for the game we all love.
We also thank all of the officials and volunteers of the four leagues. At times, their jobs are not easy to do, but are an essential part of the success of the NAHL, NA3HL, NA3EHL and NAPHL.
Lastly, we thank our owners, governors and leaders in the four leagues, for without their commitment to these players and their respective communities, none of this would be possible.
Here is wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
