There is no registration process to be eligible for the NAHL Entry Draft. Amateur players less than 21 years of age on December 31, 2012 who are not listed on an NAHL team roster or are listed on an NAHL team roster but played less than 10 NAHL regular season and/or playoff games during the 2011-12 season and did not accept a tender from an NAHL team prior to the 2012 NAHL Entry Draft are eligible for selection in the draft.
Eligible teams shall make selections in each round in reverse order of their finish in the 2011-12 NAHL regular season standings.
The number of players each team is able to draft varies on that team's current roster (protected list) minus the number 30 as of midnight of May 30. Leading up to midnight of May 30, each team's roster is comprised of veteran players and signed tenders only. For example, if a team has 15 veterans rostered and 8 tenders signed as of midnight of May 30 (23 total), that team is allowed seven (7) draft picks.
