SEPTEMBER 3, 2020
In less than two weeks, the North American Hockey League (NAHL) is pleased to be continuing a season preview series exclusively on nahl.com and the NAHL Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.
Starting on Tuesday, September 15th, one NAHL team will be featured each day all the way leading up to the first NAHL regular season game of the 2020-21 season on Friday, October 9th in a series entitled: ‘NA Now.’
During the 2019-20 season, the NAHL set a new single-season NCAA commitments record with 356 commitments, including 249 NCAA Division 1 commitments, which was also a new record.
NA Now will go in-depth into each NAHL team and will include comments from all the NAHL head coaches, including all seven of the new NAHL head coaches, as they provide an outlook and break down their rosters and schedule for the upcoming season.
It will also take a look back on the 2019-20 season and how each team fared and what they accomplished. Best of all, NA Now is here to provide the fans of the NAHL with an insiders look at their favorite team and what to expect.
The majority of NAHL rosters are being finalized in preparation for the 2020-21 season. NA Now will also provide fans with insight on key returning players and players that will be new to each team’s roster.
