NAHL players well represented at NHL Development Camps

July 15, 2022

Lone Star Brahmas goalie Arthur Smith, who was the Goaltender and Rookie of the Year in the NAHL this past season, attended Tampa Bay Lightning development camp.

Every summer following the NHL Draft 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 July.  Former NAHL players were once again a significant part of the mix as over 70+ alumni are currently at camps.

The numerous NAHL alumni at NHL development/prospect camps come on the heels of another memorable season of advancement for the NAHL.

With 328 NCAA commitments to date, the NAHL has now had over 300+ NCAA commitments the last six straight seasons.  That also includes 251 NCAA Division I commitments this past season.

The league also saw five players with NAHL experience selected in the 2022 NHL Draft held last week in Montreal, Quebec.

Below is a team list of NAHL alumni at 2022 NHL development/prospect camps:
