3View season preview series begins next week
August 14, 2018
The North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) is pleased to begin their season preview series, ‘3View’ exclusively on na3hl.com and NA3HL Twitter and Facebook pages in less than a week.
Beginning on Monday, August 20th, the league will spend the next three weeks highlighting all the NA3HL teams leading up to the first regular season game on September 7th. The 3View series will feature an in-depth look into all the teams in the NA3HL for the 2018-19 season, with two teams being highlighted daily.
The NA3HL is entering its ninth season and serves as one of the top training grounds in the country by providing the best coaching, exposure and developmental vehicles available for student-athletes in Tier III junior hockey. It is one of only two USA Hockey-sanctioned Tier III junior leagues.
The bottom line is when it comes to player advancement, the NA3HL is a step above the rest. The fact remains that when it comes to Tier III junior leagues, no other league has had more movement and advanced more players onto play in the NAHL than the NA3HL.
A total of 51 former NA3HL players played in the NAHL during the 2017-18 regular season. In addition, 24 more current NA3HL players were tendered by NAHL teams to play in the NAHL for the upcoming 2018-19 season. The NA3HL is the only league that has an exclusive NAHL tendering system available only to NA3HL players.
The NA3HL also saw over 130+ college commitments in 2017-18, with the number still growing. Almost 70% of those college commitments were NCAA commitments.
The 3View series goes in-depth into each NA3HL team and will include interviews with all the head coaches in the NA3HL, as they provide fans with their expectations and outlook for the 2018-19 season, including taking a look at their potential roster and their strengths as a team for the upcoming season.
It will also take a look back on the 2017-18 season and how each team fared and what they accomplished. Best of all, the 3View will provide the fans of the NA3HL with an inside look at their favorite team and what to expect.
The NA3HL season is a month away and the majority of NA3HL rosters and camps are close to being completed. 3View will also provide fans with insight on key returning players and players that will be new to each team’s roster.
