NAHL Entry Draft less than a week away

May 19, 2011

The 2011 North American Hockey League (NAHL) Entry Draft will be conducted online on Thursday, May 26 at 1 p.m. CST.
Draft results will be available by following NAHLHockey on Twitter or at and the complete results by round/selection will be posted on at the conclusion of the draft.
There is no registration process to be eligible for the NAHL Entry Draft. Amateur players less than 21 years of age on or before December 31, 2011 who are not listed on an NAHL team roster or are listed on an NAHL team roster but played less than 10 NAHL regular season and/or playoff games during the 2010-11 season and did not accept a tender from an NAHL team prior to the 2011 NAHL Entry Draft are eligible for selection.
Eligible teams shall make selections in each round in reverse order of their finish in the 2010-11 NAHL regular-season standings. The two new member clubs – the Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings and Minot Minotauros – will select Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, after Kalamazoo won the expansion team draft lottery coin flip.
The NAHL Entry Draft consists of the number of rounds necessary for each club’s protected list to reach 30 players, which are made up of veteran players, tendered players and drafted players. Each eligible NAHL team will have one selection per round unless it has acquired or lost selections due to trades with other NAHL clubs.

Prior to the NAHL Entry Draft, the NAHL will conduct a one-round draft of North American 3 Hockey League (3HL) players with the results posted alphabetically by team on at its conclusion. Players not chosen in the 3HL draft are still eligible for selection in the NAHL Entry Draft.
