NAHL Weekend Preview

February 21, 2020
The NAHL comes into the weekend riding a high of another outstanding Top Prospects Tournament. In the few days following the event, four players who played in the Top Prospects Tournament have since announced their NCAA Division 1 commitments, with many more to come in the next few weeks.
 
Currently, the NAHL has 192 NCAA commitments so far during the 2019-20 season.
 
On the ice this weekend, the business of qualifying for the 2020 Robertson Cup Playoffs resumes for the teams in the Central, East and Midwest Division. Meanwhile, the race for the top spot and #1 seed in each division is also hotly contested.
 
This weekend features 24 games on the schedule from Friday-Sunday.
