NAHL players well represented at NHL Development Camps

July 3, 2024

Each summer after the conclusion of the NHL Draft, member teams of the NHL hold their annual development and prospect camps. Former and current NAHL players once again are a significant part of the mix as over 60+ players with NAHL ties are in attendance currently at camps. 

The numerous NAHL alumni at these NHL development/prospects camps come at the heels of another memorable season of advancement for the NHL. With 350+ NCAA commitments so far during the 2023-24 season, the league has set a new standard with 300+ NCAA commitments in each of the last eight seasons. That also includes 270 NCAA Division I commitments this past season. 

The league also saw two players with NAHL experience selected in the 2024 NHL Draft held last week in Las Vegas, NV. 

Below is a team list of NAHL alumni at 2024 NHL development/prospect camps:
