NA3HL Fraser Cup Championship and Top Prospects Tournament takes place from April 15-19 in St. Louis, MO

DALLAS, TEXAS – After a weekend full of excitement and playoff drama in the Division Finals, the field is set and ready to go for the 2021 NA3HL Fraser Cup Championship, which takes place from April 15-19 at the St. Peters Rec Plex in St. Peters, Missouri. Six teams have advanced to the season-ending event, which annually crowns the NA3HL National Playoff Champion.

A round-robin format with two pools will be implemented, with the top two teams in each pool advancing to the Semi-Finals, where they will then cross over to play the other top two teams from the other pool. The winners of the Semi-Finals will advance to the Fraser Cup Championship Game. The six teams that advance to the Fraser Cup Championship Tournament will be seeded 1-6 based on their regular season winning percentage.

Games can be seen live and in HD on HockeyTV
