“The NA3HL Draft is an important part of the team-building process and credit to our teams for the work they put this season and during the NAHL Combines in identifying players that could potentially be a part of their plans next season. We have seen time and time again how the NA3HL Draft works for teams and players. For teams, it helps them identify players that fit into their plans and someone they have identified as a player that can make a difference. For the players, this gives them some sense of resolve when they are making their hockey plans for next season,” said NA3HL Commissioner Blake Macnicol.

The NAPHL again had a big presence at the NA3HL Draft as 35 NAPHL players were selected, which is almost the same exact number of NAPHL players taken in the Draft last season. The 36 players selected represented 26% of the selections in this year’s Draft.
