NAHL Weekend Preview

January 6, 2017
The NAHL gets back to a full schedule this weekend with the first full slate of games for 2017.
 
In just one month and couple of important dates take place that will affect all teams. The first is the February 5th cut off date to determine the number of spots and coaches for the 2017 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament. The second is the USA Hockey Trade deadline, which takes place on February 6th.
 
Several teams enter the weekend on winning streaks and all four division leaders are in action this weekend.

The Austin Bruins are also on the road two times, in Brookings on Friday and Aberdeen on Saturday. The Wings begin their weekend slate of games with a home game against Bismarck on Friday.
