NA3HL announces 2019 Fraser Cup Championship schedule

March 26, 2019
After a weekend full of excitement and playoff drama in the Division Finals, the field is set and ready to go for the 2019 NA3HL Fraser Cup Championship, which will take place from March 27-31 at Seven Bridges Ice Arena in Woodridge, Illinois. Six teams have advanced to the season-ending event, which annually crowns the NA3HL National Playoff Champion.
The six divisional playoff champions have advanced to the NA3HL Fraser Cup Championship Tournament. A round-robin format with two pools will be implemented, with the top two teams in each pool advancing to the Semi-Finals, where they will then cross over to play the other top two teams from the other pool. The winners of the Semi-Finals will advance to the Fraser Cup Championship Game.
Four of the six teams that advanced to the Fraser Cup also won their division’s regular season title. The two teams that did not win their division’s regular season title was the St. Louis Jr. Blues and the North Iowa Bulls, who both finished 2nd in their respective divisions during the regular season.
Games can be seen live and in HD on HockeyTV

The Fraser Cup is named in the memory of Robert ‘Fraser’ Ritchie, a long-time staff member of the NAHL, NA3HL and NAPHL. On June 10, 2017, Ritchie passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Although Ritchie ultimately lost his battle with the disease, his influence and daily interactions with all of the owners, coaches, staff, volunteers and administrators in the NAHL, NA3HL and NAPHL, will never be forgotten, and are now and forever memorialized with the annual awarding of the Fraser Cup.
The event will be held in cooperation with the first of six 2019 NAHL Future Prospects Combine events. Entering its sixth year in 2019, the NAHL Combines introduce and provide players with a weekend that involves the 'NAHL Experience,' which will consist of competitive hockey, education of the future levels of hockey, academic preparation for NCAA hockey and exposure to professional, college and junior scouts.
