2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament gets underway
The 2020 North American Hockey League (NAHL) Top Prospects Tournament gets underway on Monday, February 17th and runs through Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at the New England Sports Village in Attleboro, Massachusetts.
All the games will be broadcast live on HockeyTV
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.
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:

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).
