February 3, 2017
In a new video series for the 2016-17 season, the North American Hockey League (NAHL) is please to feature their extensive list of alumni in the NHL, NCAA and beyond in a new series entitled the NAHL Now: Alumni Series.
The NAHL Now: Alumni Series will be a regular video segment that highlights an alumni of the NAHL, who are currently playing in the NHL, NCAA or elsewhere as we try and catch up with their current situation, as well as, take a look back during their time playing in the NAHL.
We also try and get some feedback from coaches who constantly scout the league looking for players and who have made a lasting impact on the league
During a recent trip to the state of Michigan, the NAHL traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan to catch up with the half a dozen alumni currently playing NCAA Division I hockey at the University of Michigan. One of those alumni is former NAHL and Janesville Jets forward Adam Winborg, who is in his first season with the Wolverines.
"Earning a commitment out of the NAHL was a dream come true. The coaches are very good and knowledgeable and helped me develop my game. Players should keep working hard and focus on themselves." -Adam Winborg
Winborg is a true testimony to the NAHL process of development. He played three full seasons in the league with the Janesville Jets, which included playing in the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament in both 2015 and 2016. He recorded 145 points in 170 career NAHL regular season game with Janesville.
