“NAHL.com has evolved into the epicenter for news and important information involving the North American Hockey League and it is imperative for us the make sure that the user experience is positive when they visit,” said NAHL Commissioner Mark Frankenfeld. “With tens of millions of pageviews per year, statistics tell us that nahl.com is the #1 way that our fans, players, scouts and others get their information regarding the NAHL, so it is important for us to stay up-to-date with changing technology, along with keeping things fresh and easy to navigate through.”
The quick use buttons on the right hand side include link to watch all NAHL games live through their official broadcast provider, FASTHockey. An NCAA Commitments section is also highlighted. This past season, the NAHL had 229 NCAA commitments, which was an all-time record in the 40-year history of the league.
