NA3HL Weekend Preview

October 15, 2021

The NA3HL continues the 2021-22 regular season this weekend with a busy schedule of 30 games on the slate.

Earlier this week, the NA3HL announced the dates and location for the 2021 NA3HL Showcase, which will take place in just over two months at the Super Rink in Blaine, MN, from December 20-22.

All NA3HL teams will play three regular-season games at the Showcase, which is annually one of the most well-attended and scouted events of the entire season for the league, attracting college and junior scouts alike. The 2021 NA3HL Showcase schedule will be released on Wednesday, December 1st and will pair up evenly matched teams against one another based on the current standings and is also designed to have cross-divisional games with balanced competition.

In the Central this weekend, St. Louis is in Wausau and Rochester looks to stay unbeaten with a tough series in Oregon against the 2nd place Tradesmen. Milwaukee and Peoria cross division and play teams from the West. In the East Division, Northeast looks to stay unbeaten with a pair of home games against Danbury and Bay State. Long Beach is at Norwich on Saturday and New Jersey is at Danbury on Sunday. In the Frontier Division, Gillette looks to stay in 1st place with a series in Yellowstone and Helena also looks to stay unbeaten as they host Badlands. Great Falls is in Sheridan and Bozeman and Butte play and home-and-home series. In the South, El Paso is in Atlanta for the three-game set and Austin is in Mid Cities for three games. In the West, division-leading Granite City faces Minnesota in a home-and-home series and Mason City and Willmar also play a home-and-home series.

The NA3HL is in 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.
