NA3HL announces 3View season preview series
July 26, 2019
The North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) is pleased to continue their season preview series, ‘3View’ exclusively on na3hl.com and NA3HL Twitter and Facebook pages in a few weeks.
Beginning on Monday, August 19th, the league will spend the next three weeks highlighting all the NA3HL teams leading up to the first regular season game on September 6th.
The 3View series will feature an in-depth look into all the teams in the NA3HL for the 2019-20 season, with two teams being highlighted daily.
The NA3HL is entering its 10th anniversary 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.
No other league has had more movement and advanced more players onto play in the NAHL than the NA3HL. Thanks to additional and enhanced initiatives that were put in place this past 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.
Earlier this summer, not only did 26 NA3HL players sign a tender to play in the NAHL for the 2019-20 season, but 26 more players were selected in the 2019 NAHL Draft.
The NA3HL also continues to make its mark and is one of the leaders in junior hockey with the advancement of players onto the NCAA. So far in 2019, the NA3HL has over 120+ college commitments, with almost 70% of those being NCAA commitments. In addition, over 300 former NA3HL players are currently playing in the NCAA, and 13% of NCAA Division III freshmen this season previously played in the NA3HL.
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 2018-19 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.
