The North American 3 Hockey League has announced the rosters for the 2017 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament, which will be held from February 27-28 at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Mich.
The NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament is played in conjunction with the North American Hockey League’s Top Prospects Tournament. The event has quickly become one of the most highly-scouted events of its kind, with hundreds of junior, NCAA and NHL expected in attendance this season.
All NA3HL Top Prospects games will be broadcast on HockeyTV
The NA3HL standings were frozen on Monday, January 30th. Teams were then seeded within their division based on win percentage. The number of players each NA3HL team can send to the event is based on each team’s winning percentage within their group. Each team will consist of a 20-man roster (12 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goalies). Any player who will be considered for the event, must be nominated by their respective head coaches.
A total of 120 players from the NA3HL will be spread amongst six teams, who will play in three games each during the event. The event will feature four teams that represent the eight divisions in the NA3HL. Two separate NA3HL Selects teams will compete as the fifth and sixth teams in the event. The Selects team rosters will be comprised of players with birth years of 1998, 1999 or 2000.
The East Division boasts Jets players Graham Day, Mathias Tellstrom (pictured) and Andrew Kormos, while the Selects teams will have Louis Boudon and Nick Foran.
