Slew of Colorado connections chosen in 2021 NA3HL Draft as league kicks off ’21-22 season
The 2021-22 North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) season officially kicked off on April 28 as the league held its annual draft.
Overall, 34 teams made their selections to fill their rosters for the 2021-22 season.
In total, 136 players were selected in the draft, which took just an hour and 53 minutes to complete.
“The NA3HL Draft is an important part of the team-building process and credit to our teams for the work they put this season and during the NAHL Combines in identifying players that could potentially be a part of their plans next season,” said NA3HL commissioner Blake MacNicol. “We have seen time and time again how the NA3HL Draft works for teams and players. For teams, it helps them identify players that fit into their plans and someone they have identified as a player that can make a difference. For the players, this gives them some sense of resolve when they are making their hockey plans for next season.”
