NAHL Weekend Preview

February 24, 2017
21 games on Friday and Saturday highlight the NAHL schedule this weekend as anticipation builds towards the 2017 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, which will take place on Monday, February 27th and Tuesday, February 28th at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.
 
One thing has become clear over the past few weeks, which is the emergence of four division leaders, who are separating themselves from the pack and all closing in on division titles.
 
The closest playoff races currently reside in the Central and South Divisions. Teams 2-6 are separated by just 10 points in the Central, while in the South, teams 2-4 are separated by just a lone point.
 
The final weekend of the NAHL regular season is just six week away and then it is onto the 2017 Robertson Cup Playoffs. The top four teams in each division at the end of the regular season will qualify for the playoffs.
