NAHL Supplemental Draft ready to go

May 12, 2020

The 2020 North American Hockey League (NAHL) Supplemental Draft takes place in less than a week and is scheduled for Tuesday, May 12th at 1pm (central).

The Supplemental Draft will consist of 81 selections with each of the 27 NAHL Teams receiving three picks. The draft order will be determined by the order of the NAHL Entry Draft.  In addition, each NAHL team will be been given an additional tender on May 13th, which can be used following the Supplemental Draft.

Fans and players will be able to follow the draft one of three ways:

1) Follow online at

2) Follow each selection on twitter at: @NAHLHockey

3) Listen to a free live broadcast of the draft on HockeyTV

Here are some important reminders and informational bits about the draft as it approaches:

Back on April 10th, the NAHL Board of Governors approved changes to the NAHL Player Procurement System due to unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, which prematurely ended the 2019-20 season and subsequent postponement of NAHL team Pre-Draft Evaluation Camps and NAHL Combines.

"The Supplemental Draft is necessary to serve as an additional outlet for teams to make decisions on how players performed in the 2019-20 season. A lot of time and effort has gone into scouting and recruiting. This way teams can make some decisions early,” said NAHL Commissioner and President Mark Frankenfeld. “Equally as important, the rescheduling of the NAHL Entry Draft was necessary to allow teams time to make decisions on how players perform at team tryout camps.  Players develop over the summer and some of the best players in the NAHL are discovered through the tryout process."
