NA3HL Weekend Preview
January 29, 2016
It is another important weekend in the NA3HL and while division leaders North Iowa and Metro continue to close in on division titles, the other leaders in the four divisions are starting to feel the heat of leading the pack.
This weekend offers several intriguing match-ups as the majority of teams are in action. As a reminder, we are just over a week away from the USA Hockey trading deadline and roster freeze for all US junior teams.
