"The NAHL Draft is a very important part of the process in building a team for the upcoming season, "NAHL Commissioner and President Mark Frankenfeld said. “A drafted player has been scouted by the team's coaching or scouting staff. Whether it is skill, strength, speed, compete, character or all of the above, that coach wants that individual on their team. Congratulations to all the players chosen in the NAHL Draft and good luck to every player working hard to play NAHL Hockey in their pursuit of playing NCAA hockey someday.”
