Former NA3HL players recognized in NAHL year-end awards
May 2, 2019
The NA3HL is pleased to announce that three former players have been honored by the North American Hockey League (NAHL) in their year-end awards for the 2018-19 season, which were announced this week.
No other league has had more movement and advanced more players onto play in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) than the NA3HL. Thanks to additional and enhanced initiatives that were put in place this season in cooperation with the NAHL, more players from the NA3HL play, practice, and earn NCAA Division I scholarships with the NAHL than any other league.
As a result, the NA3HL has continued to make their mark in advancement of players to the NAHL in 2018-19, as over 50 NA3HL alumni have played in the NAHL this season. The NA3HL is also the only league that has an exclusive NAHL tendering system available only to NA3HL players.
2018-19 Community Service Award: Brandon Perrone, New Jersey Titans
Brandon Perrone’s junior career began in the NA3HL in 2015-16 with the Texas Brahmas and has continued in the NAHL the past three seasons. The 20-year-old goaltender has been actively involved in many of the Titans community service efforts over the last couple of years. This season, he stepped up to take the lead with the team’s Kindness Program. This presentation is geared for Kindergarten through 2nd grade and focuses on “Kindness”. He not only speaks to the students in a way they understand, but he uses hockey as a gateway. He has also made it a point to spend extra time helping students with special learning needs. Most of the time the issues are small, but the student feels extra special because he took the time to find out. He demonstrated his desire to assist in the community once again during Read Across America Week, by visiting local elementary schools and read to the students. He has been instrumental with the many charities that the New Jersey Titans work with, but helping the younger Titans has been close to his heart. Sharing the love of hockey and helping them to be the best they can be both on and off the ice has made him a better person, and the Titans are a better organization with Brandon Perrone as a player. His willingness to help others is a quality that everyone should have.
