NA3HL Weekend Preview

September 17, 2021

The NA3HL gets back to their second weekend of action as more teams and divisions open up play on the 2021-22 season.

This weekend sees action in all five divisions. In the Central, the defending division champion Rochester Grizzlies open up play. In the East, Bay State and Long Beach both begin their seasons. New Jersey also gets underway with a series in Danbury. Danbury is in Northeast on Sunday. In the Frontier, it’s another full weekend of action as all eight teams continue to face one another. In the South Division, play opens up with Mid Cities playing the Texas RoadRunners. Finally, in the West, the Minnesota Loons make their debut against the Granite City Lumberjacks. Willmar also plays New Ulm.

The NA3HL is entering its 12th season in 2021-22 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 of its kind 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 in cooperation with the NAHL put in place several years ago, more players from the NA3HL play, practice, and earn NCAA Division I scholarships with the NAHL than any other league.

This past season not only did 35 NA3HL players sign tenders to play in the NAHL for the 2021-22 season, but 21 more players were selected in the 2021 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 2021, the NA3HL has over 100+ 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.
