NAHL alumni prominent at NHL camps

June 29, 2018

Teammates with the Brookings Blizzard in the NAHL during the 2016-17 season, Brandon Kruse and Paul Cotter are back on the ice again together this week at the Vegas Golden Knights prospect camp.

Every summer provides the annual opportunity for dozens of NAHL alumni to attend annual development and prospect camps across the NHL. 
All the NHL teams hold their development/prospect camps in late June and early July.  Former NAHL players were once again a significant part of the mix as over 60 alumni are currently at camps.
The numerous NAHL alumni at NHL development/prospect camps come on the heels of a memorable season for the NAHL.
The NAHL is on the verge of setting yet another new single-season NCAA commitments record. With 302 commitments to date, the league is just four commitments shy of setting the record set last season of 305 NCAA commitments. It also includes 220 NCAA Division I commitments this past season, which is a new record. The league also saw nine players with NAHL experienced selected in the 2018 NHL Draft held last week in Dallas, Texas.
Below is a team list of NAHL alumni at 2018 NHL development/prospect camps:
