NAHL Weekend Preview

December 1, 2017
It is another busy weekend in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) as the calendar turns to December and teams near the midway point of the 2017-18 regular season.
 
23 games are on the schedule for Friday through Sunday this weekend, which features some intriguing match-ups.
 
It was another incredible week for the NAHL and NCAA commitments. Five more players made NCAA Division I commitments this week, bringing the 2017-18 season total to 106 commitments. One of the things the NAHL does better than any other junior league is seeing their players earn an NCAA opportunity while playing and being showcased in the NAHL.
