2022 3View series begins on Friday
Beginning on Friday, August 19th, 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.
On Friday, the league will spend the next two weeks highlighting all the NA3HL teams leading up to the first regular season game on Sunday, September 4th.
The 3View series will feature an in-depth look into all the teams in the NA3HL for the 2022-23 season, with two teams being highlighted daily.
The NA3HL is entering its 13th 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 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 34 NA3HL players sign a tender to play in the NAHL for the upcoming 2022-23 season, but 27 more players were selected in the 2022 NAHL Entry Draft. The NA3HL not only saw 61 of its players tendered or drafted by NAHL teams, but over 60 NA3HL alumni played in the NAHL this past season. The NA3HL also saw five current or former players make NCAA Division 1 commitments this past season.
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 2022-23 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 2021-22 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 less than a month away and the majority of NA3HL rosters 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.
