NAHL announces 2012 Top Prospects rosters
The North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced the rosters for next month’s NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, presented by Combat Hockey, which will be held from February 20-22 at the Troy Sports Center in Troy, Michigan.
At the event, six teams - Central, Midwest, North, South, West and the NAHL 18U Selects - will each play three games. Each team consists of a 20-man roster as chosen by the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament Selection Committee as nominated by the league’s 28 head coaches, with minor player crossover amongst the six teams.
All NAHL players are eligible to participate in the Top Prospects Tournament, regardless if they’ve committed to an NCAA school. Each of the teams will consist of 12 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goaltenders. The number of players represented by each NAHL team was based on each team’s winning percentage within their division as of January 16th.
In conjunction with the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, all North American Prospects Hockey League (PHL) teams - Midget Major, Midget Minor and Bantam Major - will compete in the PHL Championship Tournament Series for the right to be crowned league champions. That event will run from February 17-20, also at the Troy Sports Center in Troy, Michigan.
The North American 3 Hockey League (3HL) will also have representation at the Top Prospects Tournament, as eight of the league’s 16 teams (Battle Creek, Cleveland, Flint, Metro, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Queen City and Toledo) will play four regular season games from February 19-22 at the Troy Sports Center in Troy, Michigan.
