NAHL and DASH to auction 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Jerseys
The North American Hockey League (NAHL) is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with league partner DASH Auction to implement an auction of jerseys for the 108 players that will be participating in the 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, which will be held from February 17-18, 2020 at the New England Sports Village in Attleboro, Massachusetts.
While the players will get to keep their game-worn jerseys from the event, a duplicate set of commemorative game jerseys was created by the NAHL’s official jersey supplier, K1 Sportswear, and those jerseys will be individually signed by each player at the event and then auctioned off on the DASH App.
Auction Details: The auction will open on Friday, February 14th at 12:00pm (central) and run until Wednesday, February 19th at 2:00pm (central). The opening bid for each commemorative game jersey will be $200 and will be done in bid increments of $25.
Fans can take part in the auction by doing the following:
• Download the DASH app by texting the word ‘DASH’ to phone number: 66866

"This is the fourth year of our partnership with the NAHL and we're happy to layer on another great program for the fans, NAHL teams, and league to connect through DASH. The Top Prospects Tournament is one of the best and most unique junior hockey events in the world and we're proud to have the opportunity to deliver a great auction experience for everyone involved, which features some incredible game jerseys exactly like those worn by the players during the event,” said Jonathan Hufnagel, Founder and CEO of DASH Auction.
DASH will be on site at the 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament to ensure that all 108 players personally sign the commemorative jerseys.
The 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament will feature a total of 108 players from the NAHL, who will be spread amongst six teams that will play in two games each during the event. The event will feature teams that represent the four divisions in the NAHL: Central, East, Midwest and South, along with two NAHL Selects teams. Only those NAHL players without an NCAA commitment are eligible to participate in the 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, with the exception of those who will be playing on the NAHL Selects teams. Each of the teams will consist of an 18-man roster (10 forwards, 6 defensemen, 2 goaltenders).
The NAHL Top Prospects Tournament is one of the most highly scouted events of its kind. Last season, over 220 scouts attended the event, which featured almost every NHL team and NCAA Division I school. The event continues to provide the hundreds of NHL and NCAA scouts in attendance with a look at the best uncommitted players the NAHL has to offer, as well as, some potential NHL Draft picks. It continues to be an important part of the NAHL event model, which is inclusive of the NAHL Showcase in September and the NAHL Robertson Cup National Championship in May.
